1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom. The Serial Number is73328535, which dates it to November 29, 1978.The pickups have the etched patent numbers and two of the pots date to the 30th week of 1978. It weighs 10 lbs 6 oz.
Two of the Pots have been changed (both are CTS and date from 1981 and 1982). The pickups are original and all of the electronics are vintage - so the changes are really just cosmetic. It sat on a stand for a long time and was not played much, but the gold hardware tarnished to the point that the original owner wanted to upgrade it to match the rest of the guitar. The tuners are original and have some pitting on the gold plating, but no major wear.The body is in near mint condition overall! I can find only three light scratches in the finish on the front and back and one light mark from where it rested on an A-frame stand. All could probably be buffed out and the rest of the body looks brand new! There are no dings or gouges and no cracks or structural issues.
The neck is straight and the frets show only minor wear. It's in excellent playing condition with no dead frets or other major issues. The fretboard is clean and the back of the neck has no indents or finish loss.The headstock has no dings around the edges or wear on the top. No cracks, repairs or extra holes. The hardware and electronics are in excellent working condition. The pickups measure 7.45?
The chrome has some light wear, but nothing out of the ordinary. It comes with a newer case which has no major issues. All of the latches, hinges and handle are in excellent working order.The item "1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom SUPER CLEAN! Tobacco Sunburst with Case 78" is in sale since Friday, June 02, 2017.
