1974 Gibson Les Paul Custom in rare Tuxedo finish (Polaris white, yellowed top with black back and sides)
This uncommon color scheme appeared in the 70′s and very few examples exist.
This one is from 1974 and has the 20th anniversary inlay at the 15th fret.
Overall in excellent condition with very few dings and light weather checking on the finish (typical of its age) 8.6 out of 10 condition.
The guitar appears stock with the only exception being the absence of the pickup covers and the poker chip for the toggle switch. The “T-Top” pickups and potentiometers, caps, switch and jack are original. The pickups read a strong 8.89k Ohms in the neck position and 8.23K Ohms in the bridge.
The original jack plate and toggle switch cover are cracked but still function as intended.
The neck is a comfortable, slim medium C and the original frets are in excellent condition.
Tuners are in great condition and turn easily.
The body is mahogany and the neck is a 3-piece with a bound, ebony fretboard.
Comes with original hard shell case in excellent condition.
1970′s Gibsons are going up in value every year and this is a prime, no-issues, rare, and collectable example as well as being the same year (and model) that Randy Rhodes made infamous and desirable with Ozzy Osbourne.
