Here is a very good 1957 Black Beauty Historic with 3 pick-ups. All original. Comes with tags and case, but Certificate is gone. It ha ssome playwear and some finish wear on the back of the headstock from a guitarstand (there is no crack or repair).
There are perhaps a handful of guitars which can truly be regarded as icons, and the 1957 Gibson Les Paul “Black Beauty” is undoubtedly one of them. This Custom Shop model from Gibson faithfully reproduces those classic instruments, and is available to you at a fraction of the cost of an original!
Classic tones courtesy of 3 Burstbucker pickups, an original and high quality specification, and an eye catching nitro finish are all wrapped together with that unparalleled, handcrafted Custom Shop finesse – the detailing of which is second to none. Gold hardware, mother-of-pearl ’50s Pattern inlays, and Grover tuners combine with the one piece mahogany body, “Chunky C Profile” mahogany neck, lustrous ebony fingerboard, and 22 medium jumbo frets to make this a guitar you will never want to stop playing.
With its elegant lines and Ebony/Pearl/Gold aesthetic, the 1957 Les Paul Custom is easily one of the most iconic and beautiful guitars ever made. It features a body carved out of a single large piece of solid mahogany, unique among Les Paul models. The resulting dark mid-range tone from the body pairs perfectly with its bright-sounding solid Ebony fingerboard. All together, it’s the pinnacle of guitar craftsmanship, design and tone. Gibson Custom Shop is proud to revive every last detail of the original “Black Beauty” for this ’57 Les Paul Custom Reissue, from the dimensions and contours to the precise inlay patterns to the entire ownership experience.
