Gibson / LES PAUL CUSTOM / 1979 / Wine Red / Guitar For Sale
Between 1977 and 1979 a very small batch of Customs left the factory with the historic three-humbucker circuitry: these guitars today are highly sought-after and bring higher values than regular production models (30% more according to the Vintage Guitar Price Guide) and are rarely seen in vintage guitar shops. This one is a rare, 100% original, great sounding Les Paul, in very fine conditions. The top is made of three pieces of flamed maple, and wood grain is enhanced by the beautiful 'wine red' finish. The body is a single piece of mahogany, quite a lucky find in years of wood sandwiches, and the neck is made of three pieces of mahogany. Hardware and appointments are the typical Custom features of those years. The back shows a belt-buckle worn area and gold-plating is worn on pickup covers and stop-bar, but the guitar is in overall excellent conditions. The three pickups are great-sounding humbuckers with impressed Patent Number: two of them have an ink-stamped date, September 1978 and February 1979. All the pots are dated 1978. Frets show playing wear but are still quite good, action is perfect. Original hardshell case. More details and 18 pictures on our web page www.realvintage.it .
