Gibson Les Paul Custom 1980 - Wine Red - Used

Item ID: ISS5584

Sold

Product Details

This Gibson Les Paul Custom is in good condition. There are some buckle markings on the back, light scratches on the top and cracks in the neck binding at frets 14 and higher. There are no finish chips or abrasions.

As many in the guitar community know, the Gibson Les Paul Custom is one of the all-time most iconic electric guitars. While there are players that prefer certain other styles of guitar, there is a common collective who all agree that the Les Paul Custom is pretty damn cool - and your favorite guitar player has likely played one at one time or another.

This particular Les Paul Custom features a three-piece maple top, and a mahogany body which substantially contributes to this guitar's [almost stereotypical] eleven pound weigh-in! Denoting features are here and intact - multi-ply binding, chrome tulip tuners, and "Fretless Wonder"-style medium wide frets. This Les Paul Custom also features its original PAF pickups.

For those in favor of a thinner neck profile, this Les Paul Custom fits the bill. Its pickups are clear and balanced, and have a smooth volume roll-off with no blanket effect on the high end. The ebony fretboard is quick and snappy. Wine Red with chrome hardware isn't often seen as much as its gold hardware counterpart - and a Les Paul Custom in this condition in Ebony or White will fetch a much higher price. For those in search of a vintage Les Paul Custom without busting the bank, this 1980 Wine Red model may be your next great guitar.
