About This Listing
Custom Shop Les Paul Standard from 1996- Good Wood era!
Stock from Custom Shop with Grover tuners and un covered 57 Classic pickups.
Lots of presence and top end. Resonant and clear like a great Les Paul should be.
Perfect 59 neck, not too big, very comfortable and broken in.
Action is great up and down the neck.
50s wiring
Currently set up with wrap around tailpiece, but can be set up however you prefer, original tailpiece included.
Original Custom Shop case.
No breaks, No cracks
Original owner tried to design the guitar with a stove top spiral on the back. This melted the nitrocellulose lacquer and some paint, but did not burn the wood.
No physical or structural damage other than the cosmetic swirls.
Price is reduced due to this.
Bigsby equipped at one point long ago removed.

This is a Custom Shop Les Paul for a great price with a special sound.
No worries of losing money because of a scratch, ready to be played for many years.

What he neglects to say is that those marks are coming from the inside out!

It's amazing the lengths people will go to put lipstick on a pig.
