Contains all the same changes that the 2013 Historics have with a added 1894-2014 Custom Shop backplate.

Extensive feature and construction changes have been made to the 2013-2014 Gibson Historic guitars:

• Finish - Aniline dye now colors the bodies and necks of the sunburst finishes, replicating the original beauty and finishing technique that created the Cherry over Mahogany finish of the 1950’s.

• Fingerboard - 1-piece rosewood fingerboards.

• Hardware - Long bridge and tailpiece studs and inserts to replicate the originals and adding to the already brilliant high’s, attack, and sustain the Les Paul is known for.

• Construction - Hot hide glue in the neck to body joint maximizes the resonant benefit of set neck construction.

• Aesthetics - Historically more realistic darker binding.

• New color formula for Goldtops, adds a bit more green and depth to the finish. Also new finish to back and sides that adds more depth and richer grain presentation!
