Gibson 1989 Les Paul Custom 35th Anniversary  OHSC

These don't often come up for sale. I've only seen a few over the last couple of years. This is a really nice example. I have tried to take photos that emphasise any wear and tear, which is all superficial. She is all original. Tuners are in excellent condition. There are a couple of small dings on the very top of the headstock otherwise it's clean. There is a scratch on the back of the neck and some other light worming. 

There is worming front and back of the body which as anyone knows is very obvious even when quite light on a black shows up everything! Plus it is impossible (I tried) to get rid of all the dust so most of the small specks you can see are just dust specks. There is a small indentation on the top. which does not go through to the wood (in the picture it's a reflection you can see in it). There are superficial light scratches front and back on the body. Electrics and pups all work fine. Neck is very straight. There is mild fret wear only, very little considering this is a 24 year old guitar so loads of life left. I bought it to collect but am moving on to some other guitars so something has to go! I haven't played it for more than an hour. But it has that vibe, way cool sounding and of course the 3 pups gives it that Frampton je ne sais quoi!

The Gibson USA case is all original pink lined with satin cover. The leather on the handle has partially come off (last photo). All the latches still work. 

Some blurb:

The 35th anniversary LP Custom was issued to commemorate 35 years for the Les Paul Custom model, which was introduced in 1954. This model has the words "35th Anniversary" written on the parallelogram inlay on the headstock. It is a 3 pickup model with gold hardware, small black bell knobs, Kluson style tuners, ABR-1 bridge, wide binding in the cutaway, with a vintage-style serial number in "9 XXXX" format ("9" for 1989).
