1996 Gibson Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar

The owner of this guitar has had it since new, I think, and he's put a lot of miles on it. It's not heavily worn but it does have a bunch of pickwear and handling-wear throughout the body. At a glance, though, it looks really nice. It's hard to see in the pics, right?

I gave it a glorified setup and it's now playing spot-on and fast. The pickups sound vaguely late-'60s to me -- clean and a bit sparkly with a lot of definition. It just sounds good! Like all traditional Pauls, though, that big old heavy mahogany plank gives it some heft and a decent strap is a must when playing one of these standing.

The neck has a late-'50s, early-'60s feel to me -- it's a little thinner and quicker like a modern guitar at first position but gets more "medium-C" towards the middle of the neck. Everything on the guitar is stock and that's nice to see, as many '90s LPs that come through the shop have been modified this way and that to suit changing tastes.

Condition notes: as mentioned, there's moderate pickwear and scuffing/scratching throughout the body and in spots on the back of the neck. I've taken some "glared" shots to give a better idea of it as it's very hard to see when it's pictured under normal light. Otherwise it's all-original and good to go.

It comes with: an original hard case.
