    HNGD: Les Paul 1957 Custom limited run single pickup

    Hi guys,

    That's a long time I didn't post an NGD thread.

    So, here it is. I found this beauty...
    An '10 LP Custom B7 with a wraptail and a single pickup.




    I'm super happy with this one.
    It fits my need perfectly for a raw and simple punk rock riffing machine.

    The added brightness and twang brought by the wraptail is just awesome.

    Another picture with its two sisters.
    My R4 Bavarian Makeover and a limited run LPC in Vintage Silverburst.



    Have a nice Sunday!

    Thanks guys!

    It's hard to find. Apparently, it's a limited run of 30 back in 2010.

    I already have three offers for it.

    Great guitar! Congrats! I had one with a single P90.
    I‘m pretty sure it‘s not a B7 though. Doesn‘t it have a CS serial? Has a short tenon - otherwise the would have put the top on the guitar after putting the neck in... but who cares if it sounds good!

    Re: HNGD: Les Paul 1957 Custom limited run single pickup

    I wonder if it has a short tenon?

    Would be cool to have one of these. As a custom order I'd make a couple of changes. Uncovered pick-up (black coils) and keep the pickup switch but wire it as a kill switch.

    It would also need to be a higher output pickup.

    Like a ThroBak MC-102B bridge pickup.

    YMMV

    It’s definitely a 57. Historic serial, coa and case.

    I put a Bareknuckle Nailbomb. Now it really rocks!

    This link indicates this '58 limited 2010 run had a short tenon. Makes sense since without a neck pickup the deeper pocket can't be routed. Still a cool guitar.

    "These guitars are built to the same specs as Historic ’58 Reissues with a few minor changes including a lightly figured top, wraparound tailpiece, and short neck tenon."

    Cool trade you my truck !!!
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    The myth :The most disturbing thing about buying a fake Les Paul is how my research after the purchase is received by Forum members ??? 2020

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    Just saw this, congratulations! Funny how it works, I just got one a month ago. My research revealed it was a 25 guitar run. Lenny Kravitz had one and it's now for sale for $9K. Mine is all mahogany, historic serial and so on. Massive neck, 9.4lbs of fun.

    When I was trying to find any info, really didn't show much. So, let's keep this going for posterity.

    I was just looking into changing the pickup, will probably try a humbucker sized P-90 as I prefer those anyway.

    Congrats again. Post some sound sample when you get a chance!

    They did a goldtop one as well, which I'd have to have, if I were in your shoes.
