1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom. Here is a very cool vintage Les Paul Custom with the original wine red finish. The Serial Number is 7XXX9XXX which dates it to 1979.The pickups are date stamped "August 27, 1979" and April?? The pots are date coded "7848" which dates them to December 1978. There is also a date stamp of "April 25, 1979" on the mounting plate for the pots.
It weighs 10 lbs 3 oz. It's all original except for the frets and tuners. The body has some small dings, scratches, scuffs and other natural wear but is in pretty nice shape overall. Definitely above average from what you normally see from this era!
No cracks, structural issues or major problems. The neck is straight and the new frets show only a touch of wear. I'm not sure what kind were installed, but they look like jumbos. 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 a few small indents that are not distracting when playing it.
The headstock has some small dings around the edges and light wear on the top, but no major issues. The tuners have been changed to Grovers, but the original Gibsons are included. The hardware and electronics are in excellent working condition. The hardware has some wear, but nothing out of the ordinary.
It comes with the original "chainsaw" case which has some light wear. All of the latches, hinges and handle are in excellent working order. Please note that I do not set up my guitars before mailing. I have played it and everything sounds great as far as I'm concerned.You may need to change the strings, adjust the action or do other maintenece to get it to your preferences. This is only an estimate on the high-end and it will probably be cheaper if you are close to the West Coast. All guitars MUST be signed for by an adult at the address!
