This is an über cool and killer sounding 1962 Gibson Les Paul Custom that weighs just a little over 3.5Kg.


She is all original apart from the bridge and a set of amazing sounding original 1962/1963 Gibson Patent Number Sticker PAF humbuckers. Has had a fresh refret and setup so you can get it going for another 60 years!

Neck pickup 7.25K Ohm Purple Wire Patent Number Sticker PAF 1961-1962
Middle Pickup 7.66K Ohm Red Wire Patent Number Sticker PAF 1963
Bridge Pickup 7.17K Ohm Red Wire Patent Number Sticker PAF 1963

The guitar shows very cool wear all over the body and neck but there are no cracks, breaks or repairs. There is a long superficial surface line on the back of the neck (comes with our Shop's warranty) which does not flex or move so it seems to be in the finish only as the thick 60's finish on these tend to crack along the wood grain, bindings, heel and fretboard as you can see in the pics. The Polaris White finish is all original and has play wear and checking on the body, neck and headstock and a touchup on the top side of the body. The original black pebble case with gold yellow plush lining is in pretty good condition with only 1 latch not working.

1962 Gibson Guitars - Amplifiers catalog, p.10
"Players call it the "Fretless Wonder" for its extremely low frets and fast action. Now it's more wonderful than ever with new body design and new features. Ultra thin, hand contoured, delicately balanced, it adjusts into a natural comfortable playing position for any guitarist, with or without strap. With three humbucking adjustable pickups, Tune-O-Matic bridge, and the new Vibrato (operates in direction of pick stroke; swings out of way for rhythm playing) with increased power, greater sustain, and a clear resonant sparkling tone, the "Custom" provides the widest range of tonal colorings and effects. Three-way toggle switch provides a unique method of tone mixing; top position selects top pickup for rhythm; center position activates center and lower pickups simultaneously for extreme highs and special effects; lower position operates lower pickup for playing lead. Finished in gleaming white for smart contrast with gold-plated metal parts."

And the price in 1962? Where's that time machine when you need one...

"$425.00 for the LP/SG and $47.50 for the Faultless gold plush-lined case."
