Do you have more pics?I got this in the shop today to remove the modern pickups. I have what are supposed to be the original pups, but I'm wondering if I should put them back in, or leave it to a professional restorer.
70s LP of some sort.
Since I'm the only one who has the word fake in my post I assume you meant me.It's clearly a late 70s early 80s white custom. More pics helpful. Bridge vol knob has been relocated. Probably mostly original 2 additional holes added to likely control middle pickup independently.A refin of the top would hide that no problem. Gibson did use those bridges stock for a time.
It's hilarious how many forums I see people claim something is a fake with little to no evidence.
Which years of Gibson Les Paul Customs did not have real MOP inlays?Those inlays are not going to be mop. They will be celluloid acetate or post 80 mother of toilet seat depending on year.
ALL Legit Les Paul Customs will have Mother-of-Pearl block inlays no matter what year they are made.... Only the model identified as a Les Paul "Custom Classic" will have acrylic block inlays.... The Custom Classic can be identified by the fact they only have multiply binding on the top of the body and not the back.Those inlays are not going to be mop. They will be celluloid acetate or post 80 mother of toilet seat depending on year.
Or early 80s. That's the exact case as my '81 Deluxe, 5 latch with 4 lid straps, red interior.
The hardware looks to be gold or very "aged relic".
