Had one just like that, sold it in 98 so I could buy a PRS.Of all of the guitars that I've bought and sold over the years, my old 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom has always felt like the one that got away. There’s just something really special about the unique wood combination and neck carve on Gibsons from that era, and I had kicked myself 1,000 times over for letting mine go.
Well, the stars finally aligned and I found another incredibly clean 1979 Les Paul Custom that sounds even better than my first one. The frets were toast, so I just got it back from being re-fretted with 6100 size stainless frets, getting a new TonePros bridge and Suhr Aldrich pickups. It's an absolute monster. So psyched to have another one of these. I have a Les Paul Traditional that does the Tele on steroids thing beautifully, and this one is just a massive sounding rock/metal machine.
and a few from before the work was done
Wish I could have that one back. Hands down the best playing guitar I've had. 11s felt like 9s. Dropped it on the headstock, no crack, stayed in tune.
Sooooo wish I could have that one back. Congrats!!!!
