Here we have an absolutely gorgeous Gibson Les Paul Custom (Black Beauty) that is all original with no cracks and zero issues. This beauty only had one owner and was beautifully preserved including the original case that has lots of wear and two missing latches but the case closes and secures and it screams rock and roll. This beast sounds just like he plays, tons of tone coming out of a hefty solid mahogany body with original T-Tops and pots that crackle and scream. Frets were professionally leveled, crowned and polished, and are smooth as butter.  Neck is Dead straight with a bit of relief and has perfect action and intonation. Setup with a fresh set of 10's.

Condition: Excellent condition but does have a one or two marks clearly pictured, close to but not a collectors piece. Has just enough wear to look mint yet able to be enjoyed at a gig or show without worrying about nicks. Only one noticeable ding on the back of the neck and a small one on the back of the body, but has absolutely no buckle rash and top is completely clean. Missing the bridge pickup cover but will be including that in sale as I already ordered that part. No cracks or issues and plays incredibly. Neck is smooth and fretboard is absolutely perfect, the frets are an absolute dream to play on and is a joy to play.

All original pickups and pots. T-top pickups, pots date to 76. Neck is butter, bridge is lethal. Electronics were cleaned with contact cleaner and have absolutely no crackling and clearly roll to 10.
