The '57 Goldtop celebrates its 60th birthday this year, and Custom is celebrating with six beautiful Diamond Anniversary models in limited quantities of just 60 each. They feature vintage-accurate gold paint, the latest historic replica appointments, hide glue construction and Custombucker pickups which reproduce the tone of first-year 'Patent Applied For' humbuckers -- one of the main reasons the '57 Goldtop became so revered in the first place. The Pearl Gold model takes the goldtop theme to new heights with a fine pearlescent sparkle added to the gold powder and a celebratory real diamond inlay the headstock logo. Each guitar is equipped with a special 60th Anniversary truss rod cover and backplate.
