1980 Les Paul Custom, tobacco sunburst, excellent condition, $2200!

Completely stock (the close up picture shows a Tone Pros roller bridge, but I will keep that and ship guitar with stock bridge).







Acquired about a month or so ago from a member on TGP.

Only reason for selling it is I had a Bigsby planned for it...alas, the Norlin-era spec (center line of stop bar tail piece to end) is too short for a Bigsby. Dont want to shim or mod the guitar or the Bigsby, so I need to find a good LPC that will work.

Made at the Nashville Plant, September 25th, 1980, per serial number research.

Excellent condition -- i'd say 9.8 out of 10. Two sets of tiny dings on the surface, one between bridge pickup and lower bout:



And the other on the upper bout:







sold with Gibson USA case, standard pink lining and cover shroud. . Case is in good shape, save for the combination lock latch is stripped. All the other latches work fine.





PRICED TO MOVE, BUT FIRM,
AT 2200 + paypal fees if any + shipping. No trades.


This is a good deal.
You'd be hard pressed to find a LPC from that era in this good a condition for any less.

I have a Cherry Sunburst that if I'm not mistaken, was built on the very same day.

That really is a good price.
The pickups (probably ink/date stamped) in the 80's Customs are superb.

Re: 1980 Les Paul Custom, tobacco sunburst, excellent condition, $2200!

i just finished taking more pics, as someone wanted to see the back...










I did discover there is a series of small nicks at the heel and one tiny ping in the cutaway:






This guitar has no issues, plays flawlessly ... i got it off a gentleman whos an interesting player and collector, and i think he had it just to have. Its been barely played from what i can tell... in fact, when i first had it it felt unplayed, a little stiff... ive put 5 or 6 hours on it,so it's loosened up a bit.

Frets are in great shape, but they are lower, as was the style for these.

Re: 1980 Les Paul Custom, tobacco sunburst, excellent condition, $2200!

Update: forgot to add that yes, i have the original pickguard and screws , they'll be sent along.

Others have PM'ed re weight: my bathroom scale is pretty inaccurate, but my guesstimate -- knowing about how much my scale is off, and how this one weighs compared to others - that its on the upper side between 9 and 10 pounds. De finite ly has some heft, but not a back breaker either.

Smile Re: 1980 Les Paul Custom, tobacco sunburst, excellent condition, $2200!

Let me ask this...

1. Is the top carve contoured or is it the more smooth dome top like the 77-78-79 Les Pauls? What I mean some defined carving to the top rather than more of a flat slightly domed surface. Here is an 84 with a nice carve >





I can't tell from the straight on pictures what the top is like.


Next, does this guitar have the Tim Shaw pickups?


Last, are you pretty certain this guitar isn't over 10 lbs? 10 lbs was fairly light weigh back then.

Thanks, it looks very nice.... you can PM me answers if you like, thanks.

Re: 1980 Les Paul Custom, tobacco sunburst, excellent condition, $2200!

Hi,
thanks for the interest!

I think its more domed than carved, but ill try to get some pics to show that...

Im not sure of the pickups; I can loosen them and take a look and take some pics. I dont think theyre Shaws.

could well be closer to the 10 lbs mark... its certainly heavier than my 84 Tokai.

I'll see what else i can post and dig up..
