I say:

Basically it’s a great looking lightweight Les Paul (8.2lb) – All the cool stuff that Gibson decided to include is here.  Case is in great condition.

The guitar looks great – but – clearly someone has not respected it – and only played in F.  The rear of the guitar has some belt buckle scratches, the neck shows signs of wear in positions 10-13.  The top only shows very light polishing marks, and one indentation below the bridge where it’s been tightened down too far.  Neck pocket still has the pick guard (not yet fitted), traditional chromed bridge pieces – rather than the currently installed Graphtech bridge pieces, paperwork, Levy’s strap, Locking chrome tuners, etc.

Remember these guitars all received the PLEK  setup and so playability is awesome all the way up the neck.

Currently has a brand new set of Ernie Ball 10’s on it.

Electronics are all good and crackle free.
