I Say:

A remarkably clean example of  this guitar.  The Worn Honeyburst finish is almost unmarked – only the slightest of bucklerash on the reverse of the body, otherwise it seems clean and clear!

The neck is in great condition , and I’d have thought the baked maple fingerboard was rosewood unless I’d read the spec!  The frets are in good condition with just a little wear in the “cowboy chord” position, but nothing that needs fixing yet.

The P90 pickups are amazing and will drive a tube amp in a gorgeous way, if you need more clean headroom – just back them off from the strings a little or turn down the volume knob to clean it up!

It is a remarkably lightweight Les Paul – 7.1lbs – so if you like your guitars easy on your back this could be for you!.

Originally sold with just a “gig bag” this item has a superb Kinsman Case (rebadged to look a little like a Gibson case).

All electronics are original and crackle free.
