This auction is for my beloved 1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard. I bought this guitar in '99 from Elderly Instruments in Lansing, Mi. The body is the standard mahogany (not the pancake style common to some Norlin-era LP's), the cap is a 3-piece maple, and the neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard. Just a note, the light and dark differences in the picture of the back are due to the light and photography, not the finish. The have been NO repairs to the neck or body and there are no stress signs where the neck meets the body. Also, the frets are in very good shape with much life left on them. The guitar weighs in at a very comfortable 8 lbs. The one picture showing the cutaway is to show a spot of aging on the binding. That's pretty much the only sign of binding wear. Overall this guitar is in great shape with very minimal player wear (I've babied this one. No belt buckles allowed!). The electronics are original with the exception of the bridge pickup which was replaced with a Seymour Duncan Distortion pup after the original quit. The Duncan maintains much of the flavor and dynamics of the original pickup, and I was going to get a chrome cover for it, but just never got around to it. There are a couple blemish spots (shown in photos) and these are minor for a 29 year old guitar. This guitar has been the envy of all my guitar player friends and has been a major part of every show my band has played since I bought it. It has taken ALOT of time for me to make the decision to let it go, but due to outside circumstances I can't justify having a guitar of this value right now. I figured I should put this add up quickly before I changed my mind. This LP is set up like butter and the aged neck is very stable, so tuning is not an issue (set up for 10's). I also swapped in some graphite saddles on the thinnest strings which has pretty much ended string breakage. Simply put, this is a great Les Paul! The original hardshell (pink lined) case is of course included. Shipping will be a flat rate of $50. This auction is for U.S. residents only please. Thanks so much!
