Beautiful 2002 Gibson Custom Shop Historic ‘57 Les Paul Ebony 3 Pick-up Custom. These don’t turn up often, there aren’t many 3-pickup non-bigsby Black Beauties out there. It’s one of the best years for accurate looking reissues of this model too! It has an Ebony fingerboard of course, with a thick and chunky ‘50’s profile carve to the neck. A solid mahogany body with no weight relief and great looking vintage carve to the top. Lovely thin nitrocellulose finish really adds to the vintage vibe on this. Has been well looked after with absolutely no breaks or repairs. Plenty of life left in the frets (never been refretted, still has nibs), the truss rod is fine and the neck is straight. All electrics work perfectly and it's a great player with a very easy action. Has its original Gibson ’57 Classics on the front and back with a Gibson Burstbucker 2 in the middle. No pickguard or paper certificate. Weight 4.87kg. Nice condition with just a few light scratches. Mostly circular around the control knobs. No bucklerash on the back.  Complete with its original velvet crush lined Gibson Custom Art hardcase, all latches working. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a really nice 2002 Custom Shop Black Beauty.

At Gas Station Guitars we carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special.  All pictures are of actual guitars, all guitars are in hand and we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship worldwide to the USA, E.U, Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and of course the UK
