1956 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD


via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"VINTAGE 1956 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD GUITAR WITH ORIGINAL BROWN PINK LINED HARD SHELL CASE. I PURCHASED THIS GUITAR FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER ( an "old school" Chicago bluesman) WHO PAINTED OVER THE GOLD TOP AND LAQUERED THE BODY IN 1968, THERE IS A SMALL SECTION OF BINDING REPLACED ON THE LOWER SIDE OF THE NECK, IT WILL NEED THE SILK SCREEN Les Paul DECAL, THE JACK PLATE IS BLACK AND I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE CAPS, THE FRETS ARE PERIOD CORRECT SIZE FRETS, SOME OF THE WIRING HAS BEEN RE-SOLDERED DUE TO HIM REMOVING THE PARTS SO HE COULD PAINT IT .

THE MAJORITY OF THE PARTS ARE ALL ORIGINAL : BOTH P90 PICKUPS, KLUSON TUNERS, PICKUP SELECTOR SWITCH AND RHYTHM & TREBLE RING, PICKGUARD AND BRACKET, NICKEL TUNE-O-MATIC, STOP TAIL PIECE AND STUDS, BELL TRUSS ROD COVER, SWITCH CAP,CONTROL KNOBS, THE BODY, NECK & FINGERBOARD, BOTH BROWN CAVITY PLATES, CASE & STRAP."
