The Les Paul Custom has been the top of the range Gibson solid body since its introduction in 1954. This 1972 Gibson Les Paul Custom is a fantastic in amazing condition for its age, and is one of the best examples of a '70s 'Black Beauty' we have had in store. This guitar features a Mahogany / Maple / Mahogany pancake body along with a Mahogany neck and Ebony fingerboard, with the typically resplendent block inlays and split diamond peghead logo found on all custom models. The tuners and other hardware are all gold, as was the standard for this model. The thing that really sets this guitar apart is the embossed 'Gibson' logo pickup covers, officially used by Gibson for a short time between 1971 and the middle of 1972.
This guitar is in exceptional, all original condition, and is by far the cleanest '70s Les Paul Custom we have ever had in store. It is internally and externally original, although the bridge pickup has been rewound. This guitar also includes its original case.
As with all our vintage instruments, this guitar has been given a thorough service by the Vintage Instrument Workshop and is guaranteed for 3 years in line with our vintage instrument warranty.
