You’re looking at a 1988 Gibson Les Paul Custom, with an ebony finish, gold hardware, and an ebony fretboard! If you are looking for a great “old school” LP that you can really tear into… this is the ticket, right here! The action is nice and low, and she sounds awesome! She’s all original, with the pots dating as 1988 and loaded with the Gibson “Original” pickups, and we just put a fresh new set of 10-46’s on, so she’s all dressed up and ready to rock!

She just celebrated her 34th birthday, and has been played aggressively over the years. This is no “poser”, “relic” that was created in a custom shop… This is a true rock & roll hero, plenty of nicks, dings and scratches throughout. There is also some ghosting of stickers on the back which have since been removed, and substantial pitting on the hardware. The pictures pretty much tell the story. All of these flaws only add to the awesome vintage vibe of this amazing axe, in my humble opinion! Also included is a Gibson chainsaw case, of which one of the latches is about to give up, but the case is in good condition otherwise, just as shown in the pics. Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
