1999 Gibson Historic '57 Les Paul Custom, Black Beauty in very good condition. Ebony fretboard with block inlays, gold hardware. Nashville factory-made, Historic collection.
When we received the guitar we found that the control harness had been rewired to modern Les Paul spec. The wiring was a mess and new (cheap) capacitors had been fitted. We have rewired to '50s spec and fitted brand new CTS pots and Luxe bumble bee caps. It also has strap buttons fitted. Otherwise, this guitar is all original including the case. Supplied with 3-months warranty and a 7-day returns policy.
It has general play-wear with some small dings and light scuffs. Everything remains structurally sound with no breaks or repairs. The binding has yellowed which is common on customs. The frets are in great condition having been dressed in our workshop. The truss rod works correctly.
This guitar has been set up in our workshop with a low action and D'Addario 10s. Weight 10lbs. Nut width: 43.2 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 23.2 mm. Inked Serial: 7 9430.
