1971 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty
This product is currently sold out.
- 1971 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty.
- All original parts w/ original case, this one sounds like a million bucks, absolutely superior, as a lead guitar instrument, than pretty much everything else here.
- Includes replacement Grovers as well as original waffle tuners, no extra holes drilled.
- Pro refret, lots of life left
- The indoor photos were tough, too much reflection.
- The original serial number is faint, but visible, it won't show up in photos
- T-Top pickups sound perfect, articulate.
- Not a collector grade guitar, but a phenomenal player, with no issues. There are the usual nicks and scratches, nothing that stands out. No major scratches or dings. There is some nice lacquer checking, but it's quite faint. You'll only see it if the lighting is at the right angle. There's no weak spot. No damage whatsoever.
- Awesome, solid humbucking LP tone. Absolutely destroys the one other modern humbucker LP than I have here.
- I'm including period correct waffle tuners, as well as the gold Grovers that are currently installed. Again, no holes drilled, no routing, no repairs, nothing weird.
- The weight of the guitar is 10.5, not too heavy.
- The guitar shows no areas of major wear & tear, just a normal amount of light surface scratches and occasional dings found in almost any 40 year old guitar.
- So much incredible music was recorded and played with these 1970's era Black Beauties.
