  • Description: Player's Perspective

    Music Store Live is proud to present this 1998 Gibson Les Paul Custom! All wrapped up in white and gold, this is an absolutely ripping LP Custom. If you play "stunt guitar", "impossible guitar" or even just really good guitar and you demand the highest level of playability from your instrument, this one can handle it! The action is low, the neck is super straight and the fretwork is top shelf. When this LP Custom isn't stopping traffic with it's looks, it's laying down some of the fastest, creamiest and gnarliest licks you ever heard. There are gobs of sustain emanating from this beast and it is an extremely responsive player. Plug in, shred, die happy. 

    Item Details

    This 1998 Gibson Les Paul Custom is finished in Alpine White and is all original. That means that it's rocking some high profile bling with gold hardware, a bound ebony fretboard, large pearl block inlays and a split diamond headstock inlay. The Gibson 496R and 498T humbuckers are a screaming pair that give you everything from thick warm vintage tones to over the top heavy rock riffage to roll with. The late 50's neck profile has a beefed up feel to it that vintage nuts will love and the Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge makes setups and intonation a snap. This white beast comes with its original hard shell case. Serial # 92038600

    Overall Condition

    This 1998 Gibson Les Paul Custom is in very good + condition. The body is very clean with the exception of one tiny blue discoloration spot on the lower back, some  guitar stand marks on the back of the neck and one tiny finish crack on the back of the neck. Overall, this axe is cosmetically and structurally excellent but with just enough little oddities where we have to technically downgrade it to "very good +" condition. However, it's hard to imagine a more solid feeling and playing Les Paul Custom. The frets show minimal wear at the worst and only in the first position. There are a low number of faint finish scratches on the finish.

    It looks to us like this guitar was purchased, barely ever played or just played lightly at home or in the studio. It's doubtful this axe has even seen any real gigs! It's a solid rock machine and it's got the tone to prove it. For any of you heavyweights out there, this 10.5 pounder is gonna rock your world!
