This Gibson Les Paul Custom has been played hard - the really good one almost always are. This one has all the great early 70's features: mahogany neck, embossed patent sticker pickups, with hat knobs, etc.. It also has stock Grovers which is rare and they are better than the waffle backs that were standard at the time. The guitar shows LOTS of play wear and heavy finish checking but there are no breaks or repairs however a very small portion of the top back corner of the headstock has chipped off. It has been refretted and has 2 changed pots. The 2 original pots date to the 3rd week of 73. Aside from the frets and 2 pots it is all original. It comes with the original case.
