Gibson 1957 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty Reissue 2-pickup VOS/Gloss

$ 5199.00

For sale is an absolutely show-stopping 1957 Gibson Les Paul Custom Reissue. This latest iteration of the Black Beauty really captures the feel and sonic presence of the originals like no other previous attempt has. When I purchased this guitar, it had some light scratches, a heavy dose of VOS and some grime that felt sticky and really bothered me. I removed the VOS gunk from the body of the guitar, neck and headstock and used a nitro-safe two-stage compound polish to a mirror finish, as you can see in the photos. However, it still retains the gold hardware finish wear, yellowed binding and aged plastics. It my opinion, its the best of both worlds. It plays like an 800 pound gorilla but is actually light by non-weight-relieved standards. It is a fantastic bucket list guitar for someone looking for rock legends’ tone that has and will always be timeless. Included is the original COA, all the case candy and the Lifton Reissue case. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
