Gibson Les Paul Custom (2000s, Black, “R7”)

New to the collection, Gibson Les Paul Custom R7.  This is basically a reissue of the 1957 Custom, quite a heavy guitar and a great example of quality. It’s an early 2000s model and is a superb example of a fine solid body guitar. The binding has starred to age to a yellow hue offsetting the back and gold finish. The guitar is in excellent condition with a bit of minor tarnishing and minor marks to the body giving it a bit of rock mojo. The instrument has a great sound, with its stock pickups. The fretboard is proper quality fine grain ebony and the neck plays light and fluid. Guitar lives in its hard-case.
