My 'ex' '54 Les Paul Gold top which had a fat 'belly' and nice top carve.

This original LP period was 'flawed' in a minor sense insofar that when Gibson 'corrected' the original shallow neck angle in late '53/early'54, it mean't that the bridge P-90 pickup 'sat' too low in relation to the neck pickup and needed to be shimmed to allow the proper 'balancing' of both pickups.

All part of a "learning curve", which isn't tolerated so much today ... o_O

That said, the neck would seriously vibrate in your hand when you strummed a chord ... :)

Was that guitar ever refinished? Looks in pretty good condition.
