Description

Gibson Les Paul Custom in Alpine White finish made in 1978 with Original Hard Shell Case. This guitar features a solid mahogany body with a maple cap, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. Equipped with Gibson T Top Humbuckers in both positions. Controlled by 2-volume, 2-tone knobs and a 3-way toggle switch. The 24.75″ scale length neck has mother of pearl block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets with a slim taper neck profile. The hardware is comprised of Gibson tuning machines, a bone nut, a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge, and top hat reflector knobs with a 3-ply black/white pickguard.

This guitar is beautifully aged, with the gold stopbar having worn through to nickel rather than flaked through and the white finish yellowed quite evenly, with the exception of the worn through neck. 

Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 10-46 strings and includes original hard shell case.
