A truly wonderful 1956 Gibson Les Paul Custom in good condition.
This beauty has been played for years and years so it's has some play wear and some little dings & dongs here and there.
It has been played for a good reason: it is not only lightweight 3.95kg but it is very resonant and a tone monster!
The original alnico (neck) pick up sounds fantastic, it is one of the best hidden gems of Gibson history. The bridge pick up is an original P90 pick up, with that very typical 50ies tone .
You know what is extra cool on this type of guitars?
An original Bigsby...
This guitar comes also with an original 50ies Bigsby, so you can choose your preferred configuration. That means there is a snakebite in the body. But also difficult to notice on a black beauty.
This is a vintage dream guitar for both players & collectors.
