1989 Gibson Les Paul Custom


Summary:  This Gibson Les Paul Custom is from 1989 and it sounds great & plays very easily.

Body:  Solid body electric guitar – fully bound mahogany body with a maple cap.

Neck: Fully bound mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard & pearloid block inlays. This instrument has a scale length of 24.75” and a nut width of 1 11/16”. The frets do show some visible wear but they have plenty of life left in them.

Cosmetics:  This Gibson does show wear & tear consistent with a well-played & loved guitar from the late 1980’s. There is plenty of swirls & pick scratches on this instrument – there is also a fair amount of buckle rash & dings on the body of this guitar. Some of this wear doesn’t show up very well in the photos but once you hold the guitar in your hands you will notice the various scratches & marks on the body of this guitar. There are a few small chips on the top of the headstock on this guitar but there are no cracks, breaks or splits and all wear is purely cosmetic.
