In the Shop: Mid-80s Lawsuit Era Chibson Refurb

A friend passed away and he was a guitar player and a tinkerer. He had this mid-80’s Lawsuit Era Chinese “Chibson” Les Paul in his shop and it ended up in my hands. When I got it, there was mouse poop in the cavities. I cleaned it up and polished it, completely rewired it, and installed Sweet Serrano pickups from Kept the Gotoh hardware. Now it’s a real looker and a scraming rock machine. Check out the CAM Custom Guitars truss rod cover. Snappy, yes?
