For auction is a vintage 1976 Gibson Les Paul Cherry Burst Custom. Not much you can say about this guitar that you most likely haven't heard but its as amazing as it seems. It has the black veneer cap with big gold diamond you would expect. Also the frets are original and in good shape. Now the board is one of the best around, its ebony with some of the nicest block pearl inlays I have seen. The original owner told me the pick ups are the original PAFs and all the hardware looks original as well. The only thing that does not appear to be original is the pick up selector cap and of course the washers holding the strap in place. The binding has aged into that awesome light brown and the hardware has that natural vintage look. The sustain is really incredible on this with solid mahogany body that channels the sound. If you hit a G chord it sounds like it should, huge with big mids and resonates forever. You can really lay into this guitar on leads and the humbuckers are super rich with tone. The back of the neck has a couple of tiny dings but since its 34 years old it doesn't have that huge and sometimes sticky over coat like the newer LPs have. As you can see this was not a closet piece. I actually new the original owner who was a pretty big guitar player around the New England rock scene so I remember him playing this actual guitar in the early 90s when I first starting going to shows. He kept pretty good care of it. The back of the body as you can see has buckle rash with one smaller area of wear. I wouldn't let the blems sway you from a true classic and guys now pay big money to have their new guitar look like this AKA.....fake mojo. Sorry about the glare between the pick ups selector and neck but thats all it is not the actual finish. The original owner was a smoker so I have been airing it out and its much better. Gibson customer support told me to try to leave it out of it case and just blast it with a small fan whenever I can. I will ship worldwide but it must be insured for its full value and make sure the country you reside in will accept a box that is 46"x19"x7".
