About This Listing

Gibson Les Paul Standard, 1983, Candy Apple Red Gloss. All Original, Tim Shaw Pickups, Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fretboard.
This guitar is a Collectors Dream and is a Like Brand New 38 year old guitar. I have the original  speed knobs and toggle cover. This is rare indeed and you'll never see this condition again. This guitar has been stored and maybe seen a hour of play. No scrapes, scratches or anything, I found a few almost non visible insignificant marks that are from when new. I bought my Black 83 Standard, only 42 away in serial number from my Candy Apple Red and both are just incredible. I've played my Black LP almost exclusively for 38 years and now the Candy Apple is returning to the light. These early 80s Nashville LPS are truly exceptional both in tone and dynamics. 
The only other 1980s Candy Apple Red LP Stardards I've seen are the Limited Edition with the Gold Hardware. Those guitars are the ones you see most often and sell for high 6000s in average condition. This exceptional Les Paul is the Original Real Deal and in unheard of New condition for being 38 years old. I'm only listing this guitar as a feeler and will most likely keep it so if your interested, I suggest buying it immediately.

Feel free to message me with your email or txt number for more information and pictures.

Thanks and take care.
