For sale is a beautiful 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom K.M. Cherry Sunburst. This is Gibson's first re-issue of the 1959 Les Paul, 20 years after its inception. Made in Kalamazoo... this is a K.M.(Kalamazoo Made) in Michigan, at the Original Gibson factory!! Built by the old craftsmen on the original machinery that started Gibson's legacy of being world renowned.. the "Custom Made" plaque, which is mounted under the tail piece was only used during the very early first run of production for this very rare guitar, of which only about 1,500 were made....and far less came with the "custom made" plaque and even fewer had all that... Adding to the rarity of this guitar.. this is Gibsons' short use of the open faced double-cream T-Top humbuckers. Due to lawsuits with DiMarzio, and patent rights issues, these pick ups were used for a very short time.
Overall this guitar is in very good condition. There are a few minor scratches and wear spots. Feel free to message us if you have any questions, or to request more pictures.
