This is a 2012 Gibson Les Paul 50s Tribute in a sweet ebony finish. Beautiful guitar with amazing tone and feel. Couple of open coil humbuckers are the power under the hood, and the body has a thin nitro finish to let the tone come through. This guitar is in excellent playing condition. When you strap it on, the first thing you notice is it won't break your back. The mahogany body still has all the sustain and tone of a Paul but with some weight relief to make gigging fun again. The next thing you notice is the TONE from the 490R and 498T humbuckers on board, and the rounded 50s neck profile feels good in the hands. 

Some nice details--the green tulip Kluson tuners, large neck inlays, and aged plastics and gold knobs--make it a slick vintage/modern hybrid. These show wear and achieve a mild relic look quickly. This one has some really cool finish wear around the edges already. Looks lovingly played like a nice road worn guitar. No major marks, just the good looking kind. Extra bonus: the back of the neck has been stripped for a smooth satin feel, and they did a very pro job on it. Weight is a nice light 6 pounds, 15 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
