2005 GIBSON Les Paul Standard
Double-Cutaway for your playing please!
Spectacular Trans: Candy Apple RED Gloss Beautifully Figured (Flamed)
SOLID PREMIUM MAHOGANY BODY WITH "MONSTER-FLAMED" AAA MAPLE CAP
Accented by all-gold hardware!
And the sound of this red lady: Gibson's acclaimed Burstbucker Pros power the tone in this Les Paul.......producing the very best tone available today in any Les Paul Style guitar. The '60s Thin Tapered neck combined with GIBSON's Jumbo frets creates outstanding playability, not to mention the the double-cut design allow you to reach those screaming higher notes at will. As I said above, the GIBSON Les Paul STANDARD Double-Cutaway is viewed by many as the most comfortable and player-friendly Les Paul Standard.
Condition of Guitar: The original owner spent very little time playing this Les Paul, so consequently, it is in near-mintcondition. The frets have practically no visible wear and the fretboard is in "as new" condition " (see picture 7). Some very light wear on the gold hardware (pickup covers and bass side of the bridge from hand resting while playing. Even the back of this guitar shows little signs of wear and the plastic is still on the black electronics cover.
In addition, this guitar had a full professional setup this week: body, neck, and headstock were cleaned and gloss polished (except for back of neck); Fretboard was cleaned and conditioned with instrument grade Lemon Oil; Frets were cleaned and polished; Tune-a-matic bridge and StopTail were adjusted for optimal playability and intonation. A new set of GHS David Gilmour Les Paul Boomers (10.5 - 50) were installed to provide a bit more beef with the lighter Les Paul Standard.
What can I say......this is the kind of classic figuring you would see in "Beauty of the Bursts".........Fully figured with the flame extending to the outer edges of the carved AAA maple cap....even on the horns. In many respects, the figuring on this Les Paul Standard is equal to the figuring you see on Gibson's most expensive reissue Custom Shop guitars. for $3000 and well above. And, this figured Western Maple Cap sits on the premiere tonewood in the world.....a one piece solid, Grade A hard mahogany body. The awesome neck of the is also constructed from one solid piece of quarter-sawn, lightweight Grade-A mahogany for improved strength and resonance. Designed to optimize tone and sustain.
***** Comes with the original fitted GIBSON USA hardshell case............also in excellent Condition.
Finally, if you look at the current options for current Les Paul Double-Cuts, you will not see this "candy-apple red". It is not being used by Gibson at this time...........which increases its collectabililty and future appreciation.
I am not going to talk anymore....instead of reading, look at this beautiful Gibson Les Paul. If you buy this guitar, don't be surprised if it doubles in value in the next five years.
GIBSON Les Paul Standard = GREAT Investment!
