1969-1970 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty
This is one super melodic, sweet sounding, rich tone '69-'70 Custom... Really RINGS unplugged and roars when plugged in a Marshall on edge. Has nothing to do with the dull sounds some can have with some of these 70's Customs. This is something different. A true bliss to play and a joy to hear. The low output Patent number sticker T-Tops sounds very open and rich.
It has all typical 1969-1970 markings: 2-piece center lined mahogany body, 3 piece mahogany neck, small transitional volute, long tenon cutout, Gibson waffleback tuners, original Gibson Patent Number stickered T-Top Humbuckers (lead wires cut and changed for coil-splitting in the past), Gibson logo has no dot on the "i", closed "b" and "o". Original early 1970 CBA pots, caps, bridge, stoptail and plastics. Weighs 4.3Kg
Includes the original 1969 Gibson 5-latch purple interior Les Paul Hardshell Case
This guitar does have some scars to show after a tough life on the road. Several dings and scratches show on the body, neck and headstock, there were 2 coil splitting switches between the volume and tone knobs which have been removed and the holes plugged, the back of the neck was refinished (although no cracks or breaks visible, not even on blacklight and the headstock has the original serial, logo etc.), toggle switch replaced, one neck pickup mounting screw has broken off in the body. But hey: you dont have to worry about taking this one to a gig or 2!!
