When it comes to 50's Les Paul Customs, I think 1957 is the year you want; it's the first year with PAF's, and the last year with with the cool waffle-back tuners prior to Grovers becoming standard in 1958. This one is all straight and reasonably clean in about an 8.0/.10 overall condition with some belt worming on back, light player-wear on back of the neck, and worn gold-plating. The tiny original frets and in good shape; the guitar plays well considering they ARE small frets, and it sounds fantastic with lots of sustain and resonance. The 9 pound 5 ounce weigh is reasonable for one of these, pot codes are 134734 (34th week of '57), and the PAF's read in the 7.3k-7.5k ohms range. Comes in an original yellow-lined black pebble-grain case.
