Up for auction is an authentic 1980 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe in black. Rare factory orig. Black Les Paul Deluxe model made in the Kalamazoo factory. This guitar is a true relic and it has been outfitted like Neil Young's "Old black" guitar. Complete with a genuine early '60s Bigsby, twin Seymour Duncan mini humbuckers, Schaller M6 tuners, 50s gold speed knobs, authentic 60's tuneomatic ABR-1 with brass saddles, and hand turned aluminum Pickguard. GREAT TONE! This guitar not only plays great and sounds awesome, but it's a genuine relic with no phony aging- this is all real playwear! NO MODS, this was all done without any changes to the guitar, it has a Vibra-Mate Bigsby adaptor, pickups are fit in existing cavities, and this has bridge bushing adaptors to convert to vintage ABR (like Neil's). The frets are still in good shape with lots of life left, the neck is dead straight action super low with no buzzing, truss rod is fine. This has no breaks or repairs and plays great with lots of natural resonance. This was set up with genuine rocking vintage 60's thumbwheels, just like Neil's (super hard to find). Made in the original Kalamazoo plant just like all the original 50s LPs!! This one is set up to stay in tune perfectly when using the Bigsby, no matter how much whammy is done! Condition, lots of playwear and one nick on the binding near nut (see pics). This has an extra hole near controls like Neil's (no switch) and this has been nicely filled with genuine mother of pearl. This comes with an oversize gig bag (longer but with excellent padding). No other items come with this guitar. Selling as is, with all Sales final. Shipping to Lower 48 U.S. States only, no International. Please feel free to ask any questions, look at pics, again all sales for this are final. Thanks for Watching!!!
