1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom Tobacco Sunburst W/ Ohsc
We are proud to be the second owners to this guitar - we got to hear the whole story about it - it's fascinating what owners share with us. Anyhow, this guitar was originally purchased in New York when the original owner was performing actively there before he relocated to the MidWest to be studio musician. You could imagine how many gigs and girls this guitar had seen ... so it'll show many many marks of honest, true player's wear - finish wear around the rear strap button, multiple dings on the top that were touched up to match the burst of the guitar (perfect work, you cant notice unless you are paying attention), same applies for the back (no worming, just light scratches), impressions on the bottom side of the instrument etc. - things that occur when you gig 5 times a week. The pictures will tell you the rest!
The instrument had the speed knobs replaced with gold ones, the bridge pickup is from August 1980 (the owner wanted the Burst pickup look so he replaced the bridge pickup to be zebra and removed the top of the neck pickup), the neck pickup (T Tops, belongs to the guitar), not sure about the tail piece, bone nut, professionally installed and cut. The instrument had never suffered any sort of repair and it's solid as a rock, you have around 25% left from the original frets as the guitar technically was just in its case for the last 10 yrs! The pots (original) date the guitar to the 8th week of 1979. Fully functional truss rod, low action with absolutely no buzz and clean notes and tons of real mojo. The guitar weighs 9 lbs 13 oz on a digital scale and it includes its original case in great condition! Thanks!
