TL:DR 100% Original with original receipt. This piece is a total yeti killer, its all there, all aged to a creamy white and melts like butter. Only 2 spots keeping it from mint, this piece is a total gem.

Holy smokes, the white beauty, the beast of the east, the yeti killer, you're looking at an absolute white demon of a guitar. Please take a moment appreciate this All original Gibson Les Paul Custom from 1989 in its original and rare Alpine white finish. Take another moment to appreciate how unbelievable clean and genuine this monster is. Thats right, this guitar is 100% original sans any repairs/mods/breaks and has been totally preserved in the most perfect way possible. This piece sports a completely stock layout including the nut, its never been touched and has gently aged into a beautiful cream. Its got the original Bill Lawrence pickups which are incredibley sweet. The old dehydrated wood, original vintage circuit and pickups have this unique swell where each note is so sweet and smooth. As opposed to the older models with t-tops this thing is way smoother, a tad darker, and each note is just a sweet bell, total show stopper.

Starting off the body is lathered in a scrumptious alpine finish which has aged over time into a beautiful cream. There is only 2 noticeable cosmetic flaws, wear on the lower right of the top and the middle of the back has an almost invisible scratch . The body is sporting a solid, dense, and resonant Mahogany body that gives you all the mid-range you will ever need. The Hardware is almost completely gold that has barely been worn from player wear. The electronics are completely original and have the infamous original Bill Lawrence which are so smooth and silky in the neck and the bridge just melts your face off with full transparent gain and fat mids. The combination of These, the vintage circuit, and dehydrated solid mahogany gives you an elite sounds that might explode your amp.

When you first pickup this piece you notice the neck has literally been untouched/ Its unbelievably comfy and smooth and has a really nice wide "C" shape, on the slimmer side starting at 0.83" at the 1st and filling out to 0.99" at the 12th. The neck is mint condition and feels and looks so delectable like white chocolate. Sitting atop the one piece mahogany neck is a beautiful dark slab of ebony with square pearl inlays and then the peg head which has a luxurious multi-ply binding trim, split diamond inlay, and inlayed gibson logo. Overall, this piece is a total tone monster that has been amazingly preserved and looks so freaking good when your holding it, you cant get enough. Its got tons of sustains, some of the best pickups of all time, honest wear. Completely original, and the most awesome aged alpine white finish truly the cream of the crop. Thank you for looking.
