PHOTO’s – we have more photos of this guitar, to view them please visit our REVERB store here:

Here we have one of the best playing Les Pauls I’ve ever put my hands on! The 90s was a magical time at Gibson, these are just some of the best Les Pauls ever built in my opinion

weight 8.92lbs

Condition: 7.5 to 8/10 For the age of the guitar it is in very good condition. A couple of knocks and marks on the back of the body. (see pictures) there are a couple of lacquer cracks on the front of the guitar on the lower bout, but this just looks cool! Remember the guitar is 27 years old and Nitro will age with the guitar. It looks as you would want a classic les paul to look! No headstock breaks. Lots of patina over the top and the Sunburst is just right!

Neck: 8/10 Frets have some wear on them, plenty of life left though. The neck has a couple of bumps and scuffs. Nothing major or through the paintwork, great feeling neck in the hands and a lovely dark Rosewood board.

Hardware:8/10 Very good condition, no rust on the metal parts. Very good for the age, only a small bit of tarnishing.

Electrics: 8/10
Sockets, pots and switches etc are wear and tear items. The electrics on this guitar have been tested and are in very good working order, but my standard disclaimer is it’s a used guitar and one must expect SOME occasional electrical ‘scratching’ noise, crackling and popping when adjusting pots and switches. In our opinion the electrics on this guitar exhibit less than average ‘noise’ in normal play but there’s no guarantee how long they will stay in this condition.

This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.
