1955 Gibson Les Paul Custom ebony
1955 Gibson Les Paul Custom, ebony. Made in USA, serial number 513511. This guitar is all original except for the tuner screws, a brass nut and newer electronics. The original pots and grey tiger tone caps are in the original black hardshell case with yellow interior. The guitar was refretted at one point and the frets still have lots of life left in them, however we feel it could benefit from another refret as the fret ends are a bit rough. We'd get this done and have a new bone nut installed, but the new owner might wish to have her/his favorite luthier perform this job. There appears to be a sort of scratch on the treble side of the headstock with a hairline of lacquer missing - it doesn't look like it goes into the wood and it's in a highly unusual place so we think it's merely a scratch.
