Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom! Here's something you don't see every day! A vintage Les Paul custom in an EXTREMELY RARE color that plays this incredibly well! An amazing sounding guitar, this LP Custom is ready to open the door for your playing. Thanks to our in-house guitar tech, the set up is fierce! The action has been set on the low side to satisfy your need for speed. The neck is straight and the guitar plays in tune in every position. The sound it puts out is pure Les Paul - raunchy, howling and radical. The neck position rips like velvet thunder and the bridge sounds like bottled lightning. Honestly, this LP Custom can do it all. This is a no regret rock machine.

Item Details

Born in the glorious year of 1979 and finished in the rare Gibson silverburst, this carved maple top monster is the epitome of rock bad-assness. The slim 60's neck profile makes for a very smooth and fast ride up and down the neck.  This 60's profile has a little extra thickness to it than normal - it's not a toothpick that's for sure. Everything on this LP Custom is original except for the aftermarket black hard shell case. The Gibson patent number T Top humbuckers are cranking out buckets of sweet LP tone. A set of Gibson sealed tuners, a tunomatic bridge and stop tailpiece are all keeping the tuning stability and intonation in tip top shape.

Overall Condition

This 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom is in very good / excellent condition. The only thing keeping it from original condition is the light amount of overspray done to this guitar some time ago to preserve its rare and beautiful silverburst finish. This all original LP custom plays and sounds amazing. The body shows some minimal to moderate checking in the finish. The back of the neck is very clean. There is a small amount of finish play wear on the lower bout from forearm rubbage and a light amount of discoloration to the binding on the backside of that. The frets show moderate wear in the lower position but largely they are in very good condition. 

This is a killer playing, all original vintage LP Custom in a rare Gibson finish. This will make a great addition to any collection and a slamming guitar to hit the road or recording sessions with. Guaranteed to increase in value in the future!
