For Sale 1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom with original case.
This guitar is ideal for a player. It has many, many parts changed and finish issues that effect its collectable value but not its playability. If you are a guitar collecter this is probably not the piece you need. If you are a guitar player that needs a great Les Paul that you can afford with original pickups, this is it.
It is a single piece body with a three piece neck, no valute, no made in USA, and a mid length neck tenon that weighs 9 lb. 1 oz.. The neck is on the super thin side (like a late 50's L5 neck) and has never been broken. It plays like butter.
Known work that has been done:(As told by the past owner).
The gold hardware and pickup covers were removed the day the guitar was bought. Gibson brand chrome hardware and Grovers were installed.
The neck was rebound and refinished due to heavy playing wear
A phase switch was installed between the pots in the 70's and later removed, the top was sanded and sprayed.
The sides and back were refinished due to belt rash and arm wear. The maple lam was left showing at that point.
The pickups were repaired, not rewound. Their coils are original. a wire broke and tape was added to protect them.
The Grovers were replaced
The fretboard was leveled
A brass nut was installed in the 70's and later replaced
What is for sure original:
All the wood
Truss rod cover
Both pickups, (T top patent number pickups with one coil that has no T) Gibson did that then
Selector switch and plastic ring
1 tone cap
Selector switch rear cover
