It was my 2011 Les Paul Traditional 60s in ebony + US$1800. (approx. $3800 total)Ugh so nice. How much OP if you don't mind my asking? Customs are all over the place rt now.
Stunning instrument! Enjoy it!I’ve been gassing hard for a Black Beauty for a while. Well, for more than three decades now, as this was my first dream guitar ever. But only recently the stars aligned.
The seller was a very nice guy and our trade was a match made in heaven sort of thing. He was looking for a less expensive, more classic Les Paul with slim neck and lower output pickups. Enter my 2011 Traditional ‘60s. We arranged a very reasonable deal, good for both sides, our meeting was pretty quick.
I could tell the guitar was in good shape from the photos, but I honestly wasn’t expecting a case queen, such pristine condition. I also love how the binding is slightly starting to yellow. They can be weirdly white when brand new.
This isn’t my first post-Norlin Custom though and I must say to call them overdressed Standards is such an uneducated statement. They have their own growl, I absolutely love their rounded ’59 semi chunky necks and they’re so consistent. There is something special about them.
I always feel like they’re the unsung heroes of the forum, so here’s to us proud Custom lovers and admirers who aren’t always seduced by historic specs. Thanks for reading this!
