Product Details

Description
This sweet old 1989 Gibson Les Paul Alpine White Custom just came in today. Built way back on in '89 at Gibson's Nashville plant. The alpine white finish is starting to yellow and all the gold hardware is nicely tarnished. It’s well down the road to being a great vintage looker. It has an ebony fingerboard and has never had a refret so it still has its nibs. In true custom fashion it’s not the lightest at 4.4kg, but we’ve had much heavier.  Truss rod has been checked and is fine, neck dead straight and plenty of life left in the frets. It is structurally and electrically sound. The original Bill Lawrence pickups sound superb. They are very underrated humbuckers. There is some age related nitro finish checking with a couple of lines in the neck/headstock region (pics), but is just in the paint.  It has never had any breaks or repairs. One of the plastic pick up rings has cracked as is par for the course. As mentioned above, the alpine white nitro finish has yellowed with age leading to a few lighter patches as you always get with old alpine whites. Comes with original tan pink-lined Gibson HSC. A bit tatty but working perfectly. A very nice ’89 Gibson Les Paul Custom.
