Gibson Les Paul Custom, 1983
Gibson Les Paul Custom, 1983

Price: 2050.0
Great playing, sounding 1983 Gibson Les Paul Custom. All original with OHSC. The guitar has the expected dings with the obligatory buckle rash on the back of the body but all in all in pretty good shape. Binding is all intact & frets are in surprisingly good shape. Previously owned by an old “jazz” player who found the guitar just to heavy to play as he got older (even sitting down!) He sold it me about 10 years ago & had I finally had it set up about 5 years ago but just never play my 24.75 scale legnth guitars much; I’m just a strat guy I guess! Anywho, the expected mahogany bombast, sustain & Gibsonian “mojo”. Electronics & such are all in great working order.

I apologize for any confusion. I’ve had a number of request for very detailed info such as neck profile, body construction pickup types. I contacted Gibson but no response yet. I’ll take the guitar apart & enclose a link to the pix by tonight (2-22-2011). The neck does seem to be slimmer than the few vintage Les Pauls I played back in the day but I never played that many. I did have an XR2 Les Paul that I played for a while from 2002 to 2007 that had what I considered a very slim but rounded neck. The Custom LP neck is a little flatter & not as slim.  Hopefully I’ll get some response from Gibson before the auction ends. Incidently the serial # is 83548562 which supposedly translates to December 12th, 1988 & being the 62nd produced that day. Hope this helps … Click for more info
