1977 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty Vintage Guitar w/ T-Tops, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1977 Gibson Les Paul Custom in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with a hardshell case. This Les Paul weighs 10lbs 3oz, offering plenty of punch and sustain while still being relatively on the lighter side for a later Norlin-era Custom. Tonewoods include a carved maple top, mahogany body and a three-piece maple neck capped with a bound ebony fingerboard. All three pickup positions are distinct and full-sounding, and the T-Top humbuckers deliver growl and taut low end in the bridge position, while the neck pickup has ample oomph and a thick, cutting quality. This Les Paul Custom has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
