    Description

    1957 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 78539.
    Original Bigsby Les Paul Custom in nice overall condition. The original frets show light to moderate wear. There is some light gold wear to the metal parts. This is an original factory Bigsby guitar with ground wire in the bridge pickup cavity but the Bigsby is not original, as it should be gold. No stop bar holes in the body. Pickups are all PAFs and out of phase in the middle position, which is normal for this model. There are minor dings and scratches through. The screws for the pickup surrounds have been replaced with nickel/chrome. ABR-1 Bridge. 9.4 lbs. Original hard case included. Condition: Very Good.
    From the Borst Electric Guitar Collection
