Here we have a BEAUTIFUL Gibson Epiphone Les Paul Custom Black Beauty guitar with 3 smoking pickups. This is one of the Korean made models which, IMHO, are way superior to the newer Chinese models. This looks great - very eye catching - and plays beautifully. It gets fantastic user reviews on Harmony Central, an overall rating of 9.1 out of 10.

This particular guitar is serial # I04030855 which makes it a 2004 (or 2003?) I guess. I added the mother of pearl 'Gibson' logo on the headstock. There is some light tarnishing on the pickups and hardware that I've done my best to show in the photos. A lovely guitar but I have 5 other Epi Les Paul Customs (I know, I need professional help!) and have to unload some of them.
Here's the specs:
Solid mahogany body
Set mahogany neck
Slim-tapered neck profile
22-fret rosewood fingerboard
1.68" nut width
3 Alnico Classic humbuckers
LockTone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for more sustain and easier string changing
Cream binding on body, fingerboard, and headstock
Block pearloid inlays
