For sale is my 1996 Gibson LP Custom 57 reissue. this guitar is in EX+++= condition and 14 yrs old. It looks like it just came off the shelf. Beautifull piano black finish with gold hard ware. The guitar has no issues! I cannot find a ding or scratch on it, Outside of normal playing wear it looks new. Any thing in the photos are from the camera. Black is next to impossible to photograph well. This is a very hard to find guitar. One big piece of mahogany! No swiss chesse, chamberd, funny body stuff with this guitar. This is the heavy 11.5 lb guitar that has the killer sound. Plays like a dream and stays in tune. The case is a LP protector case. Never had the original Custom Shop case or Cert. I bought this and the store clerk had sold the case to someone. Probably why they went out of business. I am selling this because I do not play anymore except at home. I have degenerative arthritis and am not able to play like I used to. This guitar was used as a studio guitar because it sounds killer and is probably why its in such great shape.
