    NGD Les Paul Black Beauty

    Got this recently. Weighs in at 10lbs and 12ozs. Even at that weight it feels "light" maybe due to the third humbucker routing? I havent fully played it yet. Waiting for a trusted luthier to come back from vacation. I want to form a zeppelin cover band now.

    Finally!!! When I was a kid I absolutely loved the Les Paul Custom - Black Beauty. The standard old black beauty that was always available with an ebony fingerboard. I was just watching the new Anderton's video and the Gibson Rep says Ebony has returned to these guitars! That excites me...

    NGD: 1973 Les Paul Custom '54 Reissue LE

    After going through a few Custom Shop '54 Reissue Black Beauties, I started looking for a '72-'74 version and eventually got this 1973 Reissue last week. The Historics were actually great, but this one has a little better feel to it in the neck department. Not quite as beefy. I really love the...

    FS: 1971 Les Paul Custom

    I am selling my 1971 Les Paul Custom. I bought this guitar in 2004, and have barely played it in the last 8 years. The serial number is 913438 (the stamp is very light and difficult to see in the pictures). The guitar is in great condition for being 47 years old, but of course has some wear to...

    (NGD) Gibson Les Paul Custom 1989....

    Hey fellas! Was searching for a 57 reissue...and (as usual) I've been hijacked by that gorgeous 1989 Les Paul Custom, which is in an incredible good shape for its age, and didn't resist. It has a gorgeous carved top. All original, no repairs, (bridge set was ordered that way, not sure if I'll...

    Folks, I'm helping a friend who's not too much in internet to sell his original 1958 Black Beauty. The guitar is all original except the pickup rings, the neck pickup that's a '61 Pat.

    Mids / Treble heavy

    I've got a Tiny Terror combo with a celestion 12 and JJ tubes (new) throughout. No matter what I do (with my epiphone LP black beauty, the mids /treble /high end is bordering on ear piercing on all three pick up positions at any volume (on the amp). A MOJO MOJO pedal thickens it up a bit, but I...

    One Paul to Rule Them All - NGD - 2015 TH BB '57 [Pic Heavy]

    Or... King Kong of Pauls I had no intention of looking for one of these, much less buying one. The only reissue type guitar I was eyeballing, was a R8 if one ever popped up close by. I had passed on one, about 2 years ago, and have been kicking myself in the ass, since. I really liked that...
