Late 1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom with original case and even original frets in decent, playable shape...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

A late 1969 Gibson Les Paul Custom in nice condition, almost gleaming, with cool gold hardware. Mostly original and a prime example of the last of the 60’s era Les Pauls…

Correct very late 60’s, purple lined case make this a rather attractive package for someone we think. A decent weight at under 4.5 Kg and a good action on original low profile frets also make this one, one you can play as well.

Pancake body, three piece neck, a micro mosquito bite volute and no ‘made in USA’ stamp and pots dated from 1967 make this one of the last of the series to be built in 1969. There are some minor dings here and there plus a few marks but overall it is very clean with no touch ups, no overspray and no repairs.

All correct hardware and mostly original electrics making this a mean sounding machine with that distinctive sound and feel of a late 60’s Les Pauls. The pickup covers have been off then on again but we have checked and there are no pickup repairs or rewinds so we must assume this was for cosmetic reasons which was a fairly common practice on black Les Paul Customs of this era and pretty cool it made them look too..!

The wire from the three way switch to the pots has been replaced but both the pots and the switch are original so a problem, or short must have developed at some time in there.

Frets are in excellent shape with little wear and perfectly playable. Pickups are strong and hot with their original PAT Number stickers on and neck has a nice medium thick C feel to it. Top also has a good, deep dish profile which is always cool to have.

Correct case is in very nice shape with all latches working and no repairs carried out.

Altogether a real nice example of this classic late 60’s Les Paul that we so often get asked for…
