    Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary early 1974


    This Les Paul is an original Kalamazoo-made rock machine. It has been black-lighted for breaks and touchup, and is totally clean, unbroken and unmessed with.

    Details:

    Serial no: 40 70 00

    Weight: 10lb 5oz, 4.7 kg.

    Frets: low, fretless-wonder style. Original with nibs. Some life still left.

    Neck: I’d call it a thin C profile. Three piece mahogany. Ebony fingerboard

    Body: three piece Gibson pancake. Decent top carve profile.

    Finish: original Gibson nitro, faded to yellow. No checking.

    Hardware: all original. Waffleback tuners, bridge, stoptail, strap buttons, witch hat knobs, nut.

    Pickups: original T-Top, patent stickers, with original covers. Looks like original solder on covers.

    Electronics: pots date to week 35, 1973. No crackles, all good. All looks untouched.

    Plastics: all original TRC, pokerchip, pickguard, pickup rings, jack plate, knobs, back plates. Maybe a question mark on selector switch tip.

    Case: original Gibson, 5 catch purple plush lining. All catches work no problem. Vinyl ok, but travelled.

    Overall condition: 7 to 8 out of 10. Some minor scratches and bumps that come from ordinary play, but very little for a guitar that is 43 years old! Stoptail is pitted, plating 60% gone. Factory goof rings around stoptail posts. If it’s ok for the Edge's LP, it’s ok for me.

    Available for questions by mail. More photos available.

    Used to be what I thought, but on Custom`s... the mahog neck goes well into 1975 and few 76`s. This OP guitar is a very early 74
