There’s just something about a nice Custom… it could be the weight, the additional styling touches or it’s standing in rock n/ roll history – but if you’ve ever considered getting yourself one, then this could well be for you.
It’s in fantastic condition with dings or scuffs whatsoever. It delivers unmistakable Les Paul tone but beyond that, as is standard with every guitar which visits the UnsungHeroGuitars workbench, this Custom will receive a full fret level, re-crown and polish to ensure that an optimal set up can be achieved without any unwanted buzzing, fretting out or dead-spots.
It will also have the ‘less than stellar’ stock circuitry replaced with higher quality toggle switch, control pots, tone caps and braided cable to raise the overall standard and feel of the instrument.
It’ll all be topped of with a full body & hardware polish to remove any light scratches or tarnish, followed by a comprehensive set up with adjustments to neck relief, nut & saddle heights and intonation to ensure it plays perfectly – by all means let me know your set up and string preference!
In short, these guitars simply don’t come off the production with this level of attention to detail or spec and whilst the price represents the guitar with all the above work carried out, you can take things a little further too…
You could have a new Gotoh bridge with 4mm conversion posts (for the ‘Gibson look’) at £35, a new set of Gotoh locking vintage tuners fitted for £85 or a set of lightly used Gibson pickups fitted for £110 – or anything else which comes to mind! Have it your way – drop us an email for a chat.
