1988 Gibson Les Paul Custom Vintage Guitar - Tobacco Burst - Courier - £2495
Iconic vintage Les Paul Custom finished in a stunning Tobacco - this is an absolute beast of a guitar.
Spec-wise you get all of the traditional custom appointments - a mahogany body with carved maple cap and binding, mahogany neck, and an ebony fingerboard.
Condition is very good and everything works perfectly - no repairs of neck breaks and very little fretwear (I imagine the frets were probably updated at some point but I can't confirm this for certain). Cosmetically it has the usual signs of use that you'd expect (and want!) on a 32 year old used guitar, namely various imprints and blemishes (particularly around the edges, on the binding which has some lacquer cracking etc, top of the headstock etc), and some lacquer wear (mainly a patch that's out of sight on the back of the guitar). There is a tiny bit of plastic missing off the bottom of the truss rod cover, but you can't see it as it's hidden by the screw, and it stays in position fine.
The gold hardware has some tarnishing but still looks great, and overall it's just a guitar which has lots of character and looks sensational. I've added as many photos as Ebay allows to illustrate the condition so please review the photos carefully prior to buying - they are an accurate reflection of the kind of blemishes on this guitar and i've listed in as much detail as I possibly can. If you have any further questions i'm happy to answer.
Fortunately it also plays as well as it looks, the medium C neck is comfortable (not too thin and not too fat - perfect) and it's had a pro set-up and plays beautifully with a low action. It's currently strung with D’Addario NYXL 10’s, the switch tip of the pickup selector has been replaced.
Tone-wise this thing absolutely sings - it's a powerhouse of a guitar (as you'd expect from a vintage Les Paul custom) and sounds absolutely huge through a nice tube amp. It does exactly what you'd want a premium Les Paul to do, and it will make you smile every time you hit a power chord.
