This "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom comes from the first year of Gibson's reintroduction of the iconic Les Paul model in its original single-cutaway form after the line was discontinued in 1963. These earlier late-'60s examples feature the no volute headstock, Mahogany body with Maple cap and long neck tenon construction. Very good overall condition with notable cosmetic wear including heavier finish checking, minor dings, fading on the gold hardware and finish wear on the back of the neck. Currently fitted with the original “waffle-back” tuners, but has had other tuners installed at some point with signs of slight reaming in the tuner holes. Plays beautifully with a comfortable, fast neck and smooth action. This guitar produces an excellent tone with a fat sounding pair of original humbucker pickups, loads of sustain from the Mahogany body and the Maple top provides a nice top-end clarity and bite. A killer vintage player! Includes original hardshell case.
