1989 Epiphone Les Paul Custom Black Beauty w/ Hard Case | First Year Production, Open Book Headstock, Long Tenon Neck
Here's a super nice and clean 1989 Epiphone Les Paul Custom finished in Ebony with gold hardware. First year set neck construction and last year of the Open Book Headstock. Neck joint is long tenon. All Original pickups and hardware but freshly re-wired with one of my pre-wired harnesses to correct some excessively scratchy pots and suspect toggle switch.

This guitar plays and sounds great! It shows very little playing wear - especially for a nearly 30 year old example. Most notable blemish is on the back at the edge of the toggle cover. All the binding is in fantastic condition. The neck is straight, the truss rod adjusts properly, and fretwear is minimal. There is some tarnishing/pitting on the pickup covers, bridge, and stop bar - but nothing extreme that looks unnatural or detracts from the great overall look.
Comes complete with what I believe is the original hard case however only the bottom latch stays firmly latched.
