Great specification! A USA Made genuine Gibson guitar with a rosewood fingerboard and chrome hardware.
Serial number looks like it’s a 1978 Les Paul Standard (very rare to find these with Humbuckers, most guitars of this era were Les Paul Deluxes with the mini humbuckers)
All original, I can’t believe how good the hardware looks! Everything is as it was when it left the factory

Condition summary 8/10 excellent condition.
The best thing is the overall condition is truly excellent, the hardware looks only a couple of years old! The body very tidy from the front.
The worst bits are: one burn / scuff on the rear of the neck behind the 7th fret. Most likely a lacquer burn from a rubber guitar stand. See photo.
A small nick on the rear about 6mm long – see photo.
Some lacquer burn on the bottom edge (not in photo) again probably from a guitar stand.

Condition detail:
The guitar has a couple of dents and a small Nitro blow on the bottom corner (most likely from sitting on a stand)
This is probably the cleanest 70s Les Paul I have seen! Great investment piece but it’s also a great player. It sounds and feels exactly like a Les Paul should!

Frets are clean with minimal wear but are the tradition fairly low and flat variety, which is normal.
Rear of neck is clean apart from the lacquer burn, no other dents and no breaks.
Rosewood fretboard is in good condition with little or no signs of wear.
The chrome hardware is in excellent condition. Not much sign of any tarnishing which is quite remarkable.
Machines are in good condition and working well.

The guitar weighs 9.9lb so it’s not the lightest guitar however it is certainly not the heaviest! We’ve had some 70s Les Pauls in weighing 12lb +!

The guitar comes with a non original hardcase in good condition.

Electrics:
Well, again, it’s all in good condition. One must expect some pot scratchyness and the odd crackle but this is really minimal.

Playability – like all guitars here at Guitar Mania this guitar has been set up by our legendary Jon our in-house tech and we can confirm that the action and intonation has been checked and adjusted and has brand new D’addario 10-46 gauge strings. It currently has a pretty low action which is how we like it.
