This well-worn road warrior Gibson Les Paul Custom is a 1978 model, in a rare silverburst finish.
Two Tom Anderson humbuckers have been installed, an H3 in the bridge and an H1 in the neck, and the frets have been replaced with a stainless steel type, which form a pyramid shape. The instrument is actually a factory second, but surprisingly there are no structural flaws. There is a slight flaw in the back burst tip, which is the likely reason why it was stamped a “second.” The story that came with the guitar is that it once belonged to Steven Van Zandt of The E Street Band. [As of press time, PG has been unable to confirm this.]
