1999 Les Paul Custom 1957 Historic - Faded Cherry, (front), (headstock), (back), (binding binding), (gold), (case).
Then, as now, the Custom has been the hallmark of the Les Paul line, with premier appointments like multi-ply body binding, bound neck, gold hardware, mother of pearl logo and split-diamond headstock inlays, Ebony fretboard and pearl block fretboard inlays.
Dont pay 49 for a new one get this one with a perfect in-house setup for 59(HOLD-Phillip K 4/7) with your choice of pickups. These early molded case, easily identified by their 4 latch closure and interior compartment door, are hard to come, especially in nice shape.
Includes the molded Elite case with serialized Fender certificate, Sweetwater certificate, keys, hang tags, pouch, etc. 79-82 Fender Jazzmaster/Jaguar Case, (inside), (feet). These cases are infamous for having missing latches, loose hinges, and pushed in feet.
This is probably the reason why so many of these play exceptionally well today.
You dont see many of these in this pastel blue which is very close to Fenders Daphne Blue, a vast majority are black, red or white. It has very low action and the single coil tone falls between a Strat and a P90 tone, although not as powerful as a P90.
It is not an 80s Japan case the latches most likely place it no later than the 70s. 1990 Fender '54 Reissue Stratocaster, (front), (back), (headstock), (neck/body markings), (electronics) (body routes), (original pickups).
As with most cherry stains Gibson uses this one bled into the binding as you can see in the pics above.
Overall in really nice shape with the only real flaws being the typical fine cracks in the Plexiglas around screws. Super nice find for the Hagstrom or vintage collector at 9. I bought this new many years ago, around the time everybody started using I-Pods, so I only used it once.
Includes a vintage case that may or may not be original. Its in excellent condition and comes with box, manual, and power supply. This is a real professional unit and it had a price that reflected that. Note: I also have a Mix-2 in a carpeted road case for sale.
If desired, we can reinstall the original Tim Shaw designed V-Mod Tele pickups, same price either way.
The sum of the improvements in the Am Pro adds up to a better guitar in all regards.
