1959 GibsonLes Paul Custom – Black

Check out this PAF-loaded, all-original 1959 Gibson Les Paul Custom in Black! Initially introduced in 1953 as the top-of-the-line solid body option from Gibson, the Les Paul Custom was released with an all-mahogany construction, ebony fretboard, pearl block inlays, and a split diamond inlay on the headstock. This specific “fretless wonder” is in unbelievably clean condition. The PAFs are beautifully voiced, and this guitar is exceptionally resonant on its own. It’s a sharp-looking guitar with a searing tone and effortless playing; it really has it all!
