We purchased this guitar nearly 20 years ago from the original owner and it immediately sold to a private collection. We are happy to have the guitar back after all these years! The guitar’s original owner installed a Bigsby tailpiece included with the guitar for a while but eventually returned it to the factory “stoptail”. This is a very early 1957 Les Paul Custom “Black Beauty” that includes all the original paperwork and hangtags as well as the “goldenrod” interior hardshell case. The original “PAF” humbucker pickups sound incredible and offer a wide array of tonal options, and the perfect ’57 neck profile makes this guitar a real pleasure to play. An incredible example of a 50’s Les Paul Custom! EXC w/OHSC $59,000.
