1970 Les Paul Custom Ebony "Black Beauty" Fretless Wonder
This is one of those amazing instruments that has all the vibe and TONE to make it a shop favorite...we are having a blast with this one! Rock with attitude!
The wear is honest and natural. Original patent # pickups. The tuners have been changed to more functional Kluson-style Schallers, and the bridge is a newer abr-1 style. None of these upgrades are unusual for the era. This was a player's instrument....a badass one at that! Sometime long ago the headstock had an expert repair done that's been stable for decades.
This seems to be an early 1970 transitional Black Beauty, as the pot date to 18th week of that year, but the body is not a sandwich. It does have the volute, and the sprague black beauty caps. We had the guitar refretted and it came out amazing. The original frets had been played to death which you can see by the wear on the guitar. The stories this instrument could tell us!
Ships in a period correct original Gibson case.
Neck Measures .895 at the 1st fret and 1.10 at the 12th fret.
