About This Listing

I'm offering up my coveted 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom in RARE Silverburst and with the original (highly desirable) T-tops pick ups. This guitar features the 60’s slim, tapered neck that so many desire. It is all original except a professional medium Jumbo refret. It comes in its original case seen in photos. The guitar plays great and sounds fantastic! This is a real deal rare Gibson authentic vintage guitar, not a 2020 replica. It’s in excellent aesthetic condition for being just over 40 years old, and is in perfect playing condition.

Tool Vibes: According to the vintage shop (based in Los Angeles) where I purchased this; the guitar was at one time owned by Adam Jones of Tool. During studio sessions he was known to tape a vibrator to the guitar to achieve a vibration sound. As a result, there is surface marking below the bridge base.  Here's more detail on Adam's experiments on Rolling Stone: "There were other odd sonic experiments on Undertow, as well – including on 'Intolerance,' the album’s opening track, where Jones used a vibrating Epilady hair remover to achieve some truly wild guitar noises."

Includes original Gibson hard case.
