1976 GibsonLes Paul Custom – Black

This original 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom with a Bigsby has wear and patina in the right places, and it’s certainly a great player! Within the first minute of playing this piece, you can tell this guitar is dialed in for incredibly low action and easy playing. All of the edges have been worn down for a soft feel, and its big frets make bends a breeze. These T-Top humbuckers sound incredible, and the sustain is stunning. This guitar has had a new nut professionally installed, and a strap button was previously installed at the heel (now removed and professionally touched up). The knobs have also been changed, and a second set of thumbwheels has been added to limit bridge lean.
