Hi Friends,
I have a Gibson Les Paul Custom 1998 (Black Beauty) for sale. This guitar is highly collectable as Gibson made some of it’s best guitars during the 80’s and 90’s era. This guitar is almost 20 years old and comes with it’s fair share of bumps and bruises. Weighing at a whopping 5.4kgs, This black beauty is highly resonant and sings! Unlike the current production models where Richlite has replaced Ebony fretboards, This piece comes with an Ebony fretboard and this will become a highly prized possession in the years to come. Lot’s of fret life on this piece and it plays very well.
