I say:

The previous owner swapped out the mini hum buckers for Gibson P90 pickups – a good move in my opinion.  He also added the classic Bigsby trem.  This is a B7 Trem, with Vibramate fitting in the original stop tail screw holes, so there’s no damage to the guitar due to redrilling etc.  The the original stop tailpiece will be included in the case.

Headstock and G Force tuning system are all in perfect condition.  I’ve not been a fan of the G force system, but with the Bigsby and their tendency to knock out the tuning if you do anything more than a gentle wobble, it’s a godsend.

The neck and fingerboard are unmarked, frets are unworn.

The rear of the body is unmarked, the top of the body shows very little damage other than a couple of lacquer checking lines nea

r the volume/tone pots.

The previous owner had the electronics changed when he had the new pickups installed.  This was badly done and hummed like crazy.  I’ve replaced the cheap little pots that were in it with CTS volume and Bournes “No load” tone pots, along with sprague orange drop capacitors.  The resulting tone is clean airy and bright – I love it.

It looks like a classic “old school” Les Paul, and sounds brilliant.
