GIBSON USA Custom Shop Les Paul '57 Reissue "Black Beauty + Ebony" (2002)

£3,800.00Price

One of the most popular Les Pauls of all time! This is a stunning recreation of the 57 Les Paul Custom. Multi ply binding on the front and back of the body as well as the front of the headstock, a bound neck, tons of inlays and fancy gold hardware equal one of the most gorgeous guitars ever created. Built in the CUSTOM SHOP to the highest standards of quality. The solid mahogany body features a mahogany top for warm tone. The one piece mahogany neck features an ebony fingerboard with fancy pearl block inlays. A trio of 57 Classic humbuckers deliver that trademark Les Paul crunch. A Stopbar tailpiece and Tuneomatic bridge team up with Grover tuners for rock solid performance. The whole package is finished in ebony lacquer and set off with gold hardware. Gloss finish, not the cheaper VOS. Incredible looks. That's why they call them a Black Beauty! Nothing plays, sounds or looks like a Les Paul Custom!

This Les Paul plays and sounds great. The beefy neck is straight and the action is low. The pickups and electronics sound great. Very versatile. This is a nice used Les Paul. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches and few tiny indents. Minor gold fade. Still very nice looking. Comes in original hardshell case and historic COA.
