Selling an original 1971 Gibson Les Paul Custom. This vintage lp, although being 51 years old, has survived remarkably well and remains in nearly all original condition. The original finish shows wear, especially in the “buckle rash” area of the guitar, but has a naturally played in look that can’t be replicated - with plenty of natural finish checking as well. The guitar is 98% original. The tuners look to be modern replacements in the correct waffle back style. No extra screw holes. The bridge is a replacement but an origjnal is included. Lastly the frets have replaced, which for most people, is a necessity on these original fretless wonder guitars. Guitar plays well with low action. The original T top patent sticker pickups sound great as they usually do, and the all wiring, solder joints appear original. Original embossed “Gibson” covers which are very rare as they were only made for a short while in late 71- mid 72. Pots date to 41st week of 71. Overall a very nice, vintage Les Paul in collectible condition, but not with the outrageous MINT price tags.
