1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom in great condition. Serial:70618085. Weight: 10.6. Other than the strap buttons this guitar is all original including the "chainsaw" case.

The Black finish shows some buckle rash / scratches on the body but this is all surface wear and none of it has worn through the finish. The neck and headstock are very clean with only a few tiny dings on the headstock. The binding is all intact, there is a small patch of discolouration at the bottom probably due to the case lining. The frets are in good shape showing only minimal wear. The original patent stamped pickups have an excellent tone. The neck pickup is warm and smooth and the back pickup adds tons of bite. All the hardware and electronics are in good working order. The bridge, tailpiece and pickup covers show moderate ageing and some of the gold plating has begun to wear in places.

Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, black lacquer finish, laminated mahogany/maple body; maple neck with a bound ebony fingerboard. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.) Fully set up and checked over by my technician.
