Epiphone Les Paul Standard Left handed
PHOTOS – for more photos please view this item in our ebay store https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303676009430
Here we have a USED Epiphone LEFT HANDED guitar in some variation of sunburst, not sure if it’s vintage or tobacco with a very attractive flame maple top. This is one of the nicest examples we have seen for a while. From the serial number it was made either 1995 or 2005 but our gut feeling is that it is 1995.
Supplied WITHOUT gig bag or hard case but will be shipped double boxed for protection.
At first glance it looks very very tidy indeed but up close and friendly you’ll see some signs of ownership. The worst is a dent on the bottom rear edge (see photos) which is noticeable and through to the paint / wood. There’s a few other scrapes, dents and scratches here and there hence the 7/10 rating.
The front of the guitar is actually the best bit. It’s really tidy with only a few very minor scratches.
The neck – the fretboard is in good condition with not much signs of wear.
The frets are doing well, signs of wear, some very very minor flat spots but really nothing much worthy of mention.
Back of the neck has no noticeable dents.
Headsock is clean and on the front but has a small dent on the rear.
Tuners are in good condition and working about as well as they do on these models. The guitar stays in tune well IF you re-string it correctly and forgive Gibson for their problematic headstock design ;o)
Electrics have been cleaned and are now in good condition.
One must expect some pot scratchiness and crackle every now and again on any used guitar but for the time that we had it when setting it up after servicing everything was good.
The pickups are sounding as big and fat as you’d expect.
Playability: we take pride in our instruments here, we love playing them, and love setting them up so they play to the best of their ability. This particular guitar has been set up with a slightly lower than factory set action, and had all the usual tests, set ups and inspections: action, truss rod, intonation, electrics etc. Set ups can be a personal thing but we like to set them up as WE like them, and 99% of the time it’s how you love them too!
