Price : US $1,678.
This is a 1980 Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar serial number 81710507 made in the USA in a tobacco sunburst finish.
The bad: It is in used condition. It has been around the block a time or two to say the least. This is not a show case guitar, it is for someone who does not care about looks and just want to rock with no regards to scatches, dents or dings. There is plenty of belt buckle rash on the back of the body, the neck's finish is worn from playing and there is separation in the finish at the neck and body joints. The face of the body has some imperfections as well. (see photos)
The good: I just replaced all of the pots, stop tailpiece, bridge, knobs and pickups with brand new Gibson parts gold plated as original, about 500.00 dollars worth. The pickups are new Gibson 490R and 498T. I believe originally the pickups were open type, but I wanted the look of the gold cover plates. The only reason I say this is because the fit was tight when installing these new pickups, but no modifications were made. The neck is good and the frets have minimal fret wear. Come with hard shell case, but I don't think it's original.
I have 100% positive feed back and plan on keeping it that way, so please ask any questions prior to bidding. I've tried to describe the guitar to the best of my abilities so there is no disappointment. There are too many imperfections to mention about this guitar, so look at the photo's and ask for more details if needed. What you're getting is a refurbis
