1969 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Yngwie Malmsteen
Owned & played by YJM for years, SN #836070
Just arrived into stock today, it’ll go nicely with a couple of our other Yngwie guitars:
Yngwie used this GT for live work and for recording, in the video he acknowledges various albums that the guitar was featured on.
It is a workhorse no doubt, one of the tools of the trade for one of the most technically and musically gifted guitarists ever.
The guitar has never suffered any breaks, it is structurally 100%, as you can see from the images. The tuners have been replaced. It plays superbly and sounds incredible. The rear route cover is signed by YJM. Original hand signed COA is included. The guitar is in a pro-grade SKB Les Paul case. Matching pair of “mid 70s onwards”, Gibson Patent stamp humbuckers were installed by YJM to replace the mini humbuckers that were in the guitar originally, the four pots are all original dating to the 29th week of 1969. Nice early shots of YJM included, the gold top can clearly be seen in the two collection images.
