Gibson Les Paul Custom Cherryburst, 1979

Here we’re looking at a very nice 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom in Cherry Burst, with almost all its original components and case. The variation from original is the addition of a set of Gold-plated Schaller Straplocks, with the strap attachments mounted on the included leather strap.   This guitar dates to February 07 1979 and was built at the historic Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The Les Paul Custom was introduced in 1954, along with the flat-top ‘budget’ Les Paul Junior; the Les Paul Special appeared in 1955, and the Standard in 1958.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary Sunburst, 1974

Built during 1974 in Kalamazoo Michigan, this Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary sports a Sunburst finish and gold plated hardware. As a commemorative model, the 15th fret mother of pearl block position marker is engraved with ’20th Anniversary’. This Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary is in overall good but not entirely original condition. The nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst finish is in decent condition, as expected for a 47 year old guitar that’s been used as expected. There is wear to the finish along the edges of the fingerboard and on the neck where it’s rested on supports in the case.

The Gibson LP Custom – the Les Paul  Custom – appeared in 1954 and aside from 1963 to 1968 has been part of the Les Paul Lineup since then in various forms. Aside from specialty models like the Supreme, it’s always been the top of the Les Paul line, with gold plated hardware, extra binding and more Mother of Pearl inlays.  Some versions after the 1957 introduction of the new humbucking pickup,  sported three pickups.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black, 1988

Designed to express class and quality, the Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black with gold plated appointments appeared in 1954 and has been top of the range since. From introduction until the single-cutaway Les Paul design was dropped in 1961, the Custom lacked the Maple cap the other carved-top models had and was all-Mahogany. When the design was re-introduced in 1968 and to the present day, that changed and the basic construction has been the same as for the other models.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Custom Tobacco Sunburst, 1982

The Gibson Les Paul Custom appeared in 1954 as an upgrade to the 1952 Gold Top, and featured all-Mahogany construction – the top was Mahogany, not Maple. The electronics frets and finish differed as well. The bridge pickup was a P-90 and the neck pickup a ‘Staple Top’ Alnico-V single coil. The frets were very low, and introduced the ‘Fretless Wonder’ concept. Finally the finish was gloss black with Gold-plated hardware and multi-layer binding, emphasising high quality and distinction.
