This is one killer Gibson Les Paul Custom.
Made in 1980, three piece maple neck and top, ebony board and Tim Shaw Pick ups.
Neck is not too skinny as you’ll find on some, feels great in my hand. The Tim Shaw’s sound fantastic, not high output and sound huge with a driven amp and equally as good clean.
Average weight just over 10lb so not the heaviest Custom out there.
Pots date correctly and has the tin cover still in place.
This is a real eye catcher that I have been looking at for a few weeks to get it in the shop.
Condition wise is fair for it’s age showing the usual buckle rash and one small piece (as pictured) of edge binding on the corner of the headstock is missing.
No neck or heel repairs. Some lacquer checking and wear on the rear of the neck from natural ageing and play wear.
The frets are original and have very minor wear, with the ebony board in great condition.
The front of the body has a few wear marks but is very clean with a nice patina including fading to the original gold plated hardware.
You’ll notice the old ‘Sound bank’ label on the headstock rear meaning that this was one of their ex-stock items that were used for rentals. It’s most likely graced a few big stages, famous hands at TV appearances over the years.
One very vibey Les Paul Custom that is very easy on the eye. A great Mick Ronson alike.
Comes with Gibson chainsaw hard case. One of the coolest customs I have had in.
Although every guitar is checked at the point of buy in for condition we try to describe as accurately as possible and with the nature of every vintage, modern, used guitar you will always find blemishes held in certain lights that we have not solely pointed out.
These are usually very small lacquer marks or polish swirls and you have to expect a margin of very light marks that go undetected in usual lit environments.
Fair given its age
