Here is something quite unique. We have a very unusual Gibson Les Paul custom that was the property of Les Paul himself. This guitar was one of a pair and was part of the estate sale of Les Paul’s equipment through Julien’s auction house in 2012. It comes with a cd and auction provenance. This is a great opportunity to own a piece of guitar history. This man changed the game in so many ways. The guitar itself is an usual specification. All natural Mahogany body with a three piece maple neck and very unusual Maple fingerboard. The guitar has the word ‘second’ on the rear of the headstock. (This indicates an imperfection on the body finish and not the guitar itself). The pickups are Tim Shaw stamped Humbuckers with gold covers. The guitar also comes with a new unused black pickguard with the original cellophane still on it. (this looks like an later edition but it was how it was sold in the auction). The guitar is not the lightest Les Paul and weighs in at 11.3 Lb or 5.16 Kg with a 43mm nut width. Comes with an original black Gibson Les Paul case.


1981 Gibson Les Paul Custom, Owned by Les Paul. All natural
