Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom! A vintage black Les Paul Custom - is there anything sweeter? Maybe not. We know a lot of you players out there will always go to one of these to meet all your rocking needs and we won't blame you for it. This '76 rocks hard. The neck is ripping, fast and super smooth. The set up is totlly dialed in thanks to our in house guitar tech. The action is low, the neck is nice and straight and we've got the intonation right where it should be. The neck position is thick and meaty sounding.The bridge is clear and bright without making you wince. This LP Custom is great for practically any style of playing though we won't doubt that rockers will flock to this one. Again, we can't blame you. This LP Custom RAWKS!

Item Details

This 1976 features a beautiful black lacquer with nicely faded binding on the body, neck and headstock. The three piece maple neck has a slim 60's profile. The original T Top humbuckers are cranking out gobs of vintage tone and helping with the impressive sustain of this guitar. The most unique feature on this LP Custom has to be the sleek maple fretboard. This is a nice twist on the classic formula that provides a bit of a brighter overall tone. Large pearl block inlays adorn the fretboard and gold hardware throughout the guitar looks stunning against the black finish. This beastly axe comes with a Gibson chainsaw style hard shell case. 

Overall Condition

This 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom is in very good condition. Everything plays and sounds excellent. The body shows signs of regular use over the years and no abuse. It shows pick scratches, lighter buckle rash and a few very small dings. There is a small rough spot on the bottom edge. The binding on the treble side of the neck shows some cracks and notable spots of wear. All the cracks and dings are smooth so they don't feel funny while playing the guitar. The frets have been redressed and show a good amount of life left to them - years of use left. The original gold covers have been removed from the T Top humbuckers for extra gain but you won't miss them as soon as you plug in and start crankin' out some seriously wild riffs.

This isn't a museum piece - it's a guitar that's been well played over the years that's ready to play for years to come. Put this guitar over your shoulder and you'll rip apart your next local gig or world tour - it crushes!
