I've got a 1974 Les Paul Custom, Black Beauty
I'd like to trade for a 4 string fretted Alembic bass
Short or Medium scale preferred,34" scale is ok
( no 5ers, fretless or 35" scales, please)

The LP is the 1974 vintage, which was also the twentieth anniversary year, it has the commemorative inlay on the twelth fret

There was a headstock repair prior to 1977, it's clean and u cannot feel it at all, I've enclosed a video of that area on my link, She's got amazing sustain, bridge pu was changed to
diamarzio super distortion humbucker, orig pu covers still on,
Original pickguard,old brown/pink LP case,

Other modification is a coil tap switch ( " Jimmy Page mod")
also brass bridge and tailpiece added prior to 1977

New strings, front and sides are super clean and
FRETS ARE ALL THERE ! prior owner played only slide, a buddy of mine, brass is oxidized but neck, front and sides are duper clean, no dings or scratches, back of body has some sceatches,
..supposedly when my buddy bought it in '77, the first owner told him the back was signed,"Let the Good times Roll,G.A.". by Greg Allman, with a key,
he was playing at a bar where Greg was at and asked to have it signed, and the marker didn't show, so he scratched it( I believe the story, who'd scratch a LPC for no reason?) it's not bad, a few scratches in back of body.

Any pics or videos u want? Just ask.
In NYC if u want a test drive.
