For sale is a 1986 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty, complete with its original hard-shell case. This guitar hails from the highly sought-after 80s era, known for producing exceptional instruments. While this guitar exhibits signs of previous play, it remains in good condition and performs immaculately. You'll find some scratches, dings, and typical wear on the headstock sides from contact with a guitar hanger. This is a common occurrence in older guitars. Considering these factors, I would conservatively rate the condition as a solid 7.5 out of 10.
With a few notable exceptions, including an upgraded Gibson 500T bridge pickup, removed pickup covers, and enhanced Sprague capacitors, the guitar maintains its original components. Regrettably, the original bridge pickup and covers are not available. There are no reported cracks, repairs, or technical issues with the guitar. The neck remains straight and free from any concerns. The original frets are in excellent condition, showing no signs of wear, and there are no buzzing or dead spots. A recent setup ensures optimal playability.
The original hard-shell case, while displaying signs of wear, still provides dependable protection. Note that there is a broken latch on the back of the case; however, it still closes securely. Detailed photographs capturing the wear on the guitar are available for your examination. Your interest in this remarkable piece is greatly appreciated. Thank you for considering it.
