1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom

Serial # 70339660. There's just something about a well-aged black Les Paul custom, isn't there? Sunbursts are cool and all, but most of us here at Folkway would be quite tickled to take home this Black Beauty. It's a 1979 model, with pots dated late '78, gorgeously worn-in finish and parts, and killer tone. And it's completely original but for one replaced knob. And best yet -- you'll find the original owner's documents in the case pocket!

Maple capped mahogany body, maple neck, ebony fingerboard with pearl inlays; gold hardware, and that sexy black finish. Typical dings, scratches and wear to the body and neck, and a small ding to one headstock corner. Slinky setup and lightning fast feel; original frets are in excellent condition. 9Lbs, 15 oz.

With original hardshell case

Reduced! Was $2,999
