Here a Gibson Les Paul Custom In Black beauty in black and nickel finish. It’s a 1979 model and is an example of a fine solid body guitar made with solid mahogany body with a cool finish. The guitar is in good condition for its near 4 decades with some marks to the body and a bit of tarnishing to the nickel hardware giving it patina and rock mojo. With killer looks, and awesome sound it is a winner in my book. The fretboard is a fine grain dark ebony and the mahogany neck plays light and fluid. Guitar receipt from the shop where it was bought for $620 in 1980 came with the guitar. Guitar lives in its beaten up chainsaw hard-case.
Here a nice, road worn Gibson Les Paul Custom Black beauty. It’s a 1970/1 model and is an example of an early Norlin multi piece pancake body guitar. It’s built with solid mahogany body with mat black finish. The guitar is in fair condition for its near 5 decades age. There is a fair bit of tarnishing giving it patina and rock mojo. It’s a heavy guitar and despite the weight it pays really well. So it is a winner too in my book. The fretboard is a fine grain dark ebony and the mahogany neck plays light and fluid. Guitar lives in a later chainsaw hard-case.
