Vintage 1989 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty w/ Original HSC
Here is a rare chance to get your hands on a vintage Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty from 1989. It was built in Gibson’s Nashville plant and finished on December 9th 1989. Of course being from ‘89 it has an Ebony fingerboard, not Richlite as Gibson have used of late on their customs. It has a good solid ‘59 neck carve and weighs in at 5kg. Complete with great sounding Gibson PAF humbuckers, 57 classics I believe. (Not 100% sure but I think this year may have originally had Bill Lawrence circuitboard pups in). Anyway plenty of life left in the frets (never been refretted, still has nibs), the truss rod is fine and the neck is straight. No problems either structurally or electrically. Obviously no breaks or repairs in its history. It's got plenty of real world mojo going on. The binding has naturally aged to a deep yellow over the decades, which always looks killer on an old black beauty. There is no pickguard or pickup covers. There is some lacquer checking on the body/neck and little lacquer nicks one the neck which you can feel. There are also some faint sticker shadows on the back. So it's real warrior but has all the vintage looks you could wish for, if you are not into sterile new guitars of course. It comes complete with original pink-lined Gibson HSC with shroud. All latches (bar one) working and combo-lock working fine. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a very cool vintage Les Paul Custom.
