Alleycat Relics / Les Paul Goldtop / 2014 / Aged Goldtop / Guitar
A replica of a 56 Les Paul goldtop with an original B7 Bigsby. The goldtop finish, as well as the Bigsby tremolo are aged to resemble an actual old 56 GT. The pickups are Gibson soapbar P90s. Wiring and electronics are all new, CTS etc. Neck is pretty chunky, typical 50s feel. Weight is nice, playability is great, sound is amazing. Feels and plays like an old one.
Alleycat Relics, Netherlands
Alleycat Relics is the guitar building aka for Krijn van Noordwijk, who is actually a photographer ( www.krijnvannoordwijk.com ). But in those sparse hours not swallowed by the photography agenda he is a hobby guitar builder and relic artist. A Telecaster aficionado who is occasionally drawn towards the Stratocaster and sometimes even a Les Paul. On these pages you will find some pictures and info on the latest builds. Guitars can be made to order, and recent stuff is mostly at www.facebook.com/AlleycatRelics
