Super clean 2013 Gibson Custom LPB-7 Black Beauty '57 Reissue Les Paul Custom just in! This Bigsby-equipped LPC nails the look, feel, and tone of the heralded mid/late 50s Customs, featuring a large '57 neck carve and a sweet sounding pair of Custombucker Alnico III humbuckers.

The all-Mahogany Customs have a particularly punchy sound with a slightly rounded top end, giving them a present but smooth overall response. Clean tones are full and robust, while gained up tones offer some heft and authority without feeling overly compressed.

At under 10lbs (with a Bigsby, no less!), this Les Paul Custom is an excellent example of a Custom Shop single-cut that would be a standout in any stable.

Condition: Excellent+. Black guitars with gold hardware tend to show their age/wear, and this particular guitar has been so well maintained that we have a hard time finding much wear on it at all. All of the gold plating is clean and bright with the lightest touch of patina in contact areas, and the beautiful Ebony finish remains just as clean with very minimal wear present. There's some minor pick wear off the edge of the pickguard and on the pickguard itself. Strap locks have replaced the original buttons as well.

Priced with the original Gibson Custom hardshell case, case candy, and COA.
