This is an all original and probably the cleanest 2006 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 57 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty 3 pickup Reissue you will ever find, this guitar has been sleeping in its case for most of its life. This is a solid beautiful amazing sounding guitar that only Gibson could do.

It is all original, from the tuners to the pickups. It has beautiful dark ebony fingerboard with amazing mother of pearl inlays, ABR1 bridge for insane sustain, 3 pickups Gibson Classic 57 for vintage PAF tones, the middle position is the first and second pickup wired out of phase by Gibson Custom Shop. They have a tight and articulate tone that give a lot of definition. The tone of this guitar is huge, fat, warm with lots of resonance and sustain. It is hard to describe it but you plug this into a Marshall and that's the sound that Jimmy Page, Joe Perry,Keith Richards, and everyone else made famous, that's on any iconic album.

The guitar is in mint condition, this is the VOS model (Vintage Old Specs), therefore the hardware has beautiful patina that give the guitar vintage mojo and vibe. There is not a single scratch anywhere on the guitar, the frets have no wear. The neck is straight and plays beautifully with low action.

The guitar comes with its original Gibson Custom Shop case, however no coa, the big paper that Gibson was including back then got lost as it would never fit in the case.

Price 5350$ USD shipped and paypaled
