The 90s was a magical time at Gibson, these are just some of the best Les Pauls ever built in my opinion

weight 4.1KG (9lbs)

Condition: 8/10 – Wow! For a 28 year old guitar it’s pretty spotless! I would rate it higher however there is some buckle rash and one or two small tiny dings on the back of the body (see pictures) no headstock breaks or any major damage to report. It’s a great player, huge sound with a lot of sustain.

Neck: 8/10 – Frets have some wear on them, plenty of life left though. Lovely dark Rosewood board on the guitar, I would say the neck is more of a 60’s taper profile and is very quick to get across the board.

Hardware:8/10 Very good condition, no rust on the metal parts. Very good for the age, only a small bit of tarnishing. Tuners have darkened and aged really well! Looks the part.

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.

Playability:
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.

Case: Original Gibson hard case (latch has broken but is inside the hard case, can be repaired)

Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to “make an offer”.
