Iconic 70’s Les Paul Custom finished in Tobacco Sunburst with ‘holy grail’ Tim Shaw pickups.

It’s a superb playing guitar with lots of vintage character and mojo. Lots of wear and blemishes as per the photos, it’s definitely used but not abused. 1 strap button looks like it’s been moved slightly - most likely to provide better balance. No breaks, repairs or issues at all and everything works as it should.


The spec includes the traditional Mahogany body combined with a silky smooth and comfortable medium profile Maple neck, premium Ebony fingerboard and gold hardware. The tuners have been upgraded to gold Grovers.

The pots are original and the pickups have been upgraded to incredibly desirable vintage Tim Shaw humbuckers. One is ink stamped from 1983 and the other is not ink stamped so likely mid-80s). These measure 7.3 and 7.40hms and as you’d expect given their reputation, have superb tone.

It comes with a hard case included as pictured.
