Les Paul Custom II

My second Gibson also turned out to be a black Les Paul Custom, basically the very same model as my first one. This guitar was owned by a good friend of mine and luckily this friend fell in love with one of my old ESP guitars, so when one day he asked me if I would be interested in just trading one guitar for the other I immediately agreed and both uf us are very happy since that day. Originally this Les Paul was equiped with the original Gibson 498T / 490R pickups, but since I always liked to experiment a bit with pickups I changed them to the Gibson 500T / 496R set, aside from this there were no other changes.
