2005 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD GUITAR 60'S STYLE NECK.
Beautiful Flamed Maple Top - NEAR Mint Condition (Read Below for Details)
Detailed item info
Single cutaway mahogany body, set-in mahogany 60's neck, bound carved maple top, 24.75 in.scale, 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl trapezoid inlay, tune-o-matic bridge/stop tailpiece,chrome hardware.
This guitar is in mint condition, only slightly used, Frets, tuning pegs and all hardware have no wear; none at all. This is a 2005 Les Paul Standard that is in the condition of a new Les Paul. I purchased this guitar from the original owner in Colorado on 2007. I am a guitar aficionado; an intermediate level player at best, and only play indoors, in my house. As such I only purchase from hobbyists and fellow bedroom players. This guitar has never been gigged with. It has lived indoors in the proper climate and humidity levels. It is in perfect condition, perfectly tuned, with proper action and intonation.
The finish on this guitar is beautiful. The Honey Burst is one of the most pleasing finishes on a Les Paul Standard. But although a nice finish is fairly easy to get on an original Gibson USA Les Paul, it is much harder to find a nice flame pattern on the maple top that will make the guitar stand out. When one is available, it is usually offered at a premium price. This guitar has both (SEE THE PICS AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF). The flamed top is just like the ones you see on promotional posters from Gibson.
Original pickups were removed by original owner, so it is unknown what pickups are currently installed. Previous owner did not specify which model pickups were installed, andI never cared for that. I rather cared for the craftmanship of the guitar itself.
I get a balanced vintage PAF tone from these pickups, just like the sound you get from a set of burstbuckers 1 or burstbuckers 2, or some of the Seymour Duncan Vintage models. Vintage, but with a kick when you push them. I run the guitar through a Seymour Duncan Twin Tube classic pedal and into a Traynor 15-watt tube amp, and the tone is beautiful. I also run it through a big muff pedal to play muddier modern blues (ala The Black Keys and Muddy Water's Electric Mud sound). To get a nice clean tone I run it directly into the Traynor's clean channel. I like to roll back the mids a little to get nicer lows and high-end on the clean channel.
This guitar has never been repaired or in need of repair.
