New (old) Gun Day - Odd Gibson Les Paul Custom LITE

Post by JJMcG » Thu Dec 20, 2012 5:18 am

So I just bought this 1987 Gibson Les Paul Custom lite in Ferrari Red - This thing is fantastic.

It weighs about 8 pounds - has a contour back - it came wired with 2 volume, 1 tone and a selector switch that coil tapped the pickups. I replaced that with a push pull tone pot, mainly for aesthetic.

Great guitar.

Odd thing is - no body binding. I got it verified by Gibson and they brushed it off as either a custom order or a factory freak. I was very wary of it being a fake - but as soon as I touched it I knew it wasnt.

Great ax - and a great compliment to my horde.
