1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom - Ebony - super lightweight !!
1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom - Ebony incl. orig. black hardshell case
1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom in Ebony in very good condition. Super lightweight with only 4.03kg (!). The guitar has been played over the years, so there is some playwear and weatherchecking - it still has that 68/69 appearance and color - great mojo. Big 68/early 69 neck profile that feels wondeful - the guitar has been refretted and plays like butter! There is a little repaired crack on the headstock wing (treble side), some shielding lacquer inside the cavity sides and changed bridge saddles - other than that there are no damages or modifications and the electronic is untouched. All 4 Pots are stamped 137.69.01 (1st week of 1969), it already has the 3-piece body and neck and the small late '69 volute but no "Made in USA" imprint on backside of headstock. The 2x "Pat.Nr.-sticker" humbuckers have outputs of N=7,75K and B=8,87K. It's a very late 69 model but it still has the look and feel of a gold era Les Paul - the reason why these early Les Paul Custom reissues are so sought after. Killer guitar with great sound and playbility! Comes in its original black Gibson hardshell case with yellow lining.
