This Les Paul in it’s current form is a vestige of rock n’ roll history. In it’s heyday there was a common enough trend among Gibson’s to have some modifications that this one in particular features as well – the tuner’s were swapped from the stock Gibson tuners to a set of Gotoh’s and the bridge pickup was changed out for a DiMarzio, likely a Super Distortion but it’s hard to say concretely. With both of the true rock n’ roller’s modifications in place, this thing is set up to shred. Currently strung with 10.5 -48’s, it plays with remarkably low action and minimal relief in the neck – saying it plays like butter is an understatement to it’s build quality and playing capability. There is some very minor fret wear particularly in first position but all traces of minor wear fade out by 5th fret or so. The electronics are in like new condition, partly due to the incredibly cool metal cavity covers that protect the electronics internally. Being marked as a second on the back of the headstock means especially that for the right player this is the machine in which rock music is made with. There are a couple of chips in the paint along the bottom edge of the back in particular, and the back of the guitar has some typical finish scuffing but nothing egregious. Any other minor artifact about cosmetics just proves it’s been around for a few decades, but considering it’s age it’s in excellent condition. Included with it is the original hardshell case in fair shape; the interior is clean and doesn’t smell but only one of the latches on the exterior is functioning.
