1996 Gibson 57 Reissue Black Beauty ID-6489
1996 Pre Owned Gibson 57 Reissue Black Beauty
This 1996 Pre Owned Gibson is in very good condition although there is some buckle rash on the back of the guitar as well as scratches to the top, none of which are through the finish. There are also a few scratches to the headstock as well as a ding on the back of the headstock. Original Gibson USA hardshell case included.
The Gibson Les Paul Custom is faithfully replicated from the original 1957 model - but with a few modern twists. Despite its journey through the years, the Les Paul Custom has managed to keep up with the times without a hitch. This Les Paul is not quite the "Fretless Wonder". It does however, have incredibly low frets that feel like you are gliding over the neck with no frets on it at all!
This Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty features a one-piece mahogany neck, carved maple top and warm-toned mahogany body. An ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlays gives it a bright attack. The original Gibson Pickups have been replaced by the DiMarzio PAF Classic Humbuckers. The pickups deliver warm rhythm and hot, solid lead sounds. Gibson also includes a bound body, neck, and head with gold hardware. This Gibson has been reissued to satisfy the needs of any Les Paul fanatic.
This 1996 Gibson Black Beauty also features the optional Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece. This classic appointment not only adds an incredible amount of versatility to this instrument. It adds to create a very vintage and authentic vibe of Gibson's very iconic Les Paul tone and design.
