The Gibson Les Paul Custom is faithfully replicated from the original 1950s model. Originally made as the highest appointed Les Paul model for Mr. Les Paul himself, and nicknamed the "Fretless Wonder" for it's incredibly low frets that feel like you are gliding over the neck with no frets on it at all!
Body is Mahogany with a hand-carved maple top. Neck is also mahogany and topped with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard. Ebony adds that "snappy", bright quality - and plays like a dream.

The pickups are Gibson "T-Top's", which offer the tonal characteristics of the original PAF's. The neck pickup boast a pretty warm, chimey tone with a touch of vintage vibe. Roll into the bridge pickup, and things get hotter. The combination is a great balance, up to play mellow blues to screaming leads. The rear cover had been removed back in the day (a la Clapton) because the capacitive effect of the gold plated covers caused high frequency roll-off.

This guitar is in Excellent condition for it's age! As it's coming up on 50 years old, it does have some wear on the pickup cover, bridge and tailpiece. There are light dings and scratches as it was regularly played but never abused! The finish is original. For it's age, there is hardly any buckle rash on the back to speak of.

Thanks and hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
