Here we have a lightweight (9lb 1oz) 2010 Les Paul Custom in a cool looking, teardrop tobacco sunburst.
When this guitar arrived the pots were all messed up, so I swapped them out with some brand new CTS replacements. The bumblebee caps were already in the guitar, likely an upgrade prior to the guitar coming to me. The knobs are also changed.
The pickups are Gibson PAF replicas, a ’57 Classic in the neck and a Burst Bucker 3 in the bridge. The covers have been off the pickups, then returned. I think this pickup combo might be why the guitar sounds as good as it does. Perhaps it is a combination of the pickups, pots and caps, but it seems to sound better than the average Standard of the era.
Frets are original and in excellent shape. The truss rod was checked and is functional. There are no breaks or repairs anywhere on the guitar. The pickguard and truss rod over are missing.
The guitar comes in a horribly treated original case. I’m including it just to get the guitar shipped safely.
The guitar is a perfect player! Take it out and gig it, customize it, enjoy it without worries – it is a workhorse!
