1995 Gibson Les Paul Standard

100% original condition

perfect working order

Original hardshell case.

WEIGHS IN AT A WHOPPING 10lbs 4oz "good wood era,"

carved, book-matched two-piece maple top, mahogany body, and one-piece mahogany neck

The 490R and 498T humbuckers have a wide tonal palette. Alnico II magnets in the neck pickup offer more chime and warmth, while the Alnico V bridge pickup has a cut and snarl that cuts through with classic Gibson roar.

I bought this guitar from Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar within the last year, and the setup is all pro: low action, spot-on intonation. A lot of this listing is copy/paste from the original I bought on reverb.

One-piece mahogany neck with a slender ‘60s-style C-shaped profile carve, measuring .820" deep at the 1st fret and .990" at the 12th.

The original frets on the bound rosewood fretboard are great, playing cleanly in all registers with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod.

The nut measures 1 11/16" in width. The headstock retains the "Standard" truss rod cover and bolt bushing Gibson Deluxe double-line tuners, which have vintage-spec greened keystone buttons.

All electronics work as they should, with untouched solder joints and "Gibson USA"-embossed humbucker baseplates—the CTS pots date to the 48th week of '94. The chrome hardware is bright and clean, with a light patina on the pickup covers and stop bar tailpiece. All of the original plastic parts are present, including the amber speed knobs, cream pickup rings, aged cream pickguard, and switch surround.

The original nitro lacquer Vintage Sunburst (Tobacco Sunburst) finish exhibits finish scratches across the top, largely pick-related and loosely across the strum path. Similar but more restrained wear is present on the back and rims.

There is a spot of relatively shallow stand rash behind fret nine on the neck profile and similar light stand-related finish wear along the lower bout edge. There is also a finish chip on the back treble-side headstock edge.

The original brown Gibson USA hardshell case is included. It's got one flaw: if you notice one of the clamps has come out, it's easily fixable.
