This is an honored example of the earliest of Les Pauls made in 1952. This is a 1 of a kind special ordered Factory Left Handed model from its original owners spouse, which in itself is very rare with maybe only 5-10 Lefties were ever made that year. Add to that its beautiful all Gold finish from its top to its back, sides & neck as even very few righties were ever painted this way in 1952. This 1st year Les Paul had no serial # ever. Its 2 P-90’s are potent & balanced. Its no-line Kluson tuners still wear its original tulip buttons & she’s still sporting all 4 of its high top gold Barrel knobs. As most remove the trapeze tailpiece, this one still has its factory lefty tailpiece. It’s an untouched dead original example that shows some weather checking all over but w/no ugly arm wear nor any area heavily green’d out. Even its back of neck finish is 95% intact which is nearly impossible to believe. Made in late ’52, Just 9 lbs. 3 oz. of perfection. She’s excellent overall & includes her original 4 latch brown-tolex pink lined hard case.
