1956 Gibson Les Paul Custom

This is my original 1956 Les Paul Custom. It's had some work, like a repaired headstock break, stop tail conversion and a re-fret - BUT everything else is original, including the finish. It may be a three-legged dog, but this was my first serious guitar, and my main gigging instrument for 20 years until it got too valuable to take out the house. It was purchased for about £400 in 1983, when I was about 12 or 13 years old. It's worth quite a lot more than that now! Great player, really strong pickups and a good looking guitar. That's my mid-fifties GA40 Les Paul amp in the background.
