While this beautiful Les Paul Custom has been extremely well kept by its previous owner it does show its age and 46-year story in some areas. The most noticeable of which is a small finish repair on the back presumably from buckle-rash, there are also some signs of overspray on the back of the neck under UV light. Aside from this, a small collection of marks around the instrument (pictured), & its nicely aged hardware, this LP Custom is in superb shape & both plays & sounds spectacular!
