1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom Wine Red

The Case…
This instrument comes with an era-correct Gibson hardshell case. One of the latches is missing, but it functions otherwise. The missing latch is included in the case but may or may not be able to get reattached. The case has a bit of a fruity smell to it – likely masking a smoke odor. The guitar didn’t seem to have any foul odor. I have it a deep cleaning and polish so it is ready to go out of the box after your personalized set up.

The Guitar! 60s Neck | 10lbs
This is a nice example of a factory chrome hardware Les Paul Custom in Wine Red that is 100% original. It has lots of playwear, but nothing over the top. The bridge and tailpiece are severely pitted and could use replacing. A few of the screwheads were stripped so I opted to just leave them in the case. Please view my video for an in-hand description and look at the condition of this guitar.

The neck is straight – the truss rod has tons of life left. The frets do show wear, but plays nicely. Your personal preference to action high may or may not require fretwork. A personalized setup is encouraged upon arrival.
