This 1969 Les Paul Custom was played for two days after its original purchase, then placed back in its case only to be stored there for the next 43 years. For it's era this is the absolute cleanest vintage Les Paul Custon we've ever seen.
Body: Three-piece maple cap on mahogany back
Neck: Three-piece mahogany neck with 1 11/16" wide nut and bound ebony fretboard with pearloid block inlays, no volute, "Made in USA" on the back of the headstock
Pickups/Hardware: Two humbuckers with patent numbers (both rate at 7.3kOhms), three-way pickup selector switch, independent tone and volume controls with 1969 potentiometers, and waffle-back tuners
Cosmetic Condition: The body hardly has a ding or scratch on it, it's remarkably clean. The neck is still glossy and virtually spotless. The headstock looks like new. This has to be the cleanest Custom of this era we've ever seen!
Weight: 9lbs 10oz
Case: Original hardshell

I got a chance to spend probably more time with this guitar than anybody before it sold recently, and I can promise you it was the finest Les Paul Custom I've ever played. Really makes you respect what Gibson used to be, because truly they "don't make 'em like that anymore."
