This is an enchanting item. It is a bit of a Franken-Paul. It is a Les Paul Less Plus (basically a thin, contoured Les Paul), a genuine Gibson manufactured in the USA. Much to my chagrin, I had the pickups replaced by a neighbor who caused some damage to the guitar. Primarily, he used the wrong screws to secure the pickup rings (instead of the screws I gave him, he used a bit larger and chromed screws). In the process, part of the finish came up under the pickguard. Thankfully, the pickguard covers the slight damage. The other “screw up” I have to take ownership of: the original plastic jack plate cracked and I was unable to source a replacement (Gibson wouldn’t replace it, Stew Mac doesn’t have it, etc.). Eventually, I got sick of the dangling jack and put a Telecaster jack plate on there. It’s not the prettiest, but it’s functional.
Despite this, the guitar is a ravishing player, looks and sounds great, and is in good condition. It actually is one of my primary guitars. In fact, the only reason I am selling it is because I just found out I am moving to New York and I actually have to sell everything I don’t have to have. Yuck.
The electronics are great: CTS pots, Mojotone tone capacitors, and a pair of Mojotone DW Tomahawks (fantastic pickups — wonderful for anything between electric blues and metal).
The timers are the G-Force tuners, which work pretty well.
The guitar comes with a Gibson gig bag.
This is chance to get a cushty, great sounding, real-deal, bound Gibson for a reasonable amount of money.
