Gibson Vintage 1988 Les Paul Custom Alpine White with Original Gibson ‘Chain Saw’ Case

Gibson Les Paul Custom in Alpine White finish made in 1988 with Original Hard Shell Case. This guitar features a solid mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. Multi-ply double-bound body bound neck and multi-ply headstock. Equipped with a Gibson Tim Shaw Patent Stamped Humbucker in the neck position and a Gibson Tim Shaw Patent Stamped Humbucker in the bridge position. 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 tall frets with a deeper C shape neck profile. The hardware is comprised of Grover tuning machines, a corian nut, a Tune-O-Matic bridge upgraded with Graphite Saddles, and black speed knobs with a 5-ply black/white pickguard.

This guitar is in excellent condition for its age however there is some yellowing of the alpine white finish in some areas including the back of the body and back of the headstock. You’ll also see some whitened areas from player wear. The is a small chip at the top of the peghead back bottom corner. There is some buckle rash as well that has not gone through the finish and was put under extreme direct lighting in order to get it to really pop out in the photo above. There are also some small scrapes and dings and signs of player wear all documented in the photos above.

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