SOLD! - 1971 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty 3PU 3 pickup
This is an original 1971 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty with no cracks or repairs other then a very professional repaired heelcrack and a refret.
The Patent Number Sticker Pickups, bridge, stoptail, plastics, case etc are all original to this guitar. The waffleback tuners are replaced for Grovers but the originals are in the case with the screws, together with the patent no. bridge and the original frets.
All pot's are original and date to 1971. One pot was changed (original in the case) for a push/pull so you can engage the middle pickup in any configuration at any volume level: neck/middle/bridge seperately, neck and middle together, bridge and middle together, neck and bridge together like in the classic Les Paul setup, or all systems go with all pickups activated in full blast. Just like Jimmy Page's Custom when he was a session musician in the early days of his career. If you want we can even set it up with a Bigsby B7 Tremolo + Vibramate! Talking about a versatile guitar... It's loud, rings like a bell and rocks like there's no tomorrow!
