Hey, everybody!

Up for consideration is a 2008 Gibson Les Paul Custom. Black finish with desirable chrome/nickel hardware from the factory in player grade condition.

Has a very well done headstock repair. Very small neck for a Gibson guitar, in my opinion… Not super thin, but well rounded and just small.
Everything you expect from an LPC… Ebony board, mother of pearl in lays and all of that awesome binding.
Plays and sounds great.
Original case with COA.
Also pretty light weight for an LPC… I figure is somewhere between 9 to 9 1/2 pounds.

I am not the original owner of this guitar. The previous owner must have been a really big Zakk Wylde Sam. When I got this guitar the original pickups and electronics were long gone and it currently has an EMG 81/60 set installed.
Also had eyebolts instead of strap buttons… Definitely would not have been my first choice. Also has a couple of screws broken off flush. Guess he could not get the hang of how strap buttons are supposed to work… LOL. Currently has a Ernie Ball super locks installed and I will include the counter part for your strap. In my opinion these are the best strap locks on the market.
To my knowledge the bridge and tail piece are original. I have a Tone Pros fridge and tail piece that I got for it but I have not installed as of this listing and they will be included with the sale.
When I received it it had a set of Grover tuning machines with a hipshot extender on the low E. I pulled those off and installed a set of Grover locking machines but will also include the ones that came on it with the sale.
Also had dome knobs when I got it but I put speed knobs on because that’s what it supposed to have. The ones that came on it will be in the case.

I know it’s not the prettiest… Rode hard and put up wet… But it is very cool. I apologize in advance for the photo quality and I will get more up as soon as I possibly can. Will also try to get some video up, as well.

MLP price: $2850 to your door. Prefer PayPal friends and family but will consider whatever method you like best as long as you cover any additional fees.

Please reach out if you have any questions as I’m always happy to offer as much info as possible. Thanks for checking out my listing and I hope you guys have a really great day!
