Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Burst – 120th Anniversary – Upgraded

$ 2050.00

This is a special 120th Gibson Les Paul Standard. This is an incredible guitar that I just don’t use. Local pickup is preferred but will ship of course. If you have a PRS Piezo Hollowbody II, I am also very interested in trading. 

Original description: 

While retaining all the looks of the world’s most desirable electric guitar, the Les Paul Standard adds extended voicing through coil-splitting switching, a lighter and more comfortable body, and your choice of a light flame top in three grades of maple—Level 3 (A ), Level 2 (AA), Level 1 (AAA)—all in Honeyburst finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose. A slightly thinner body and traditional 9-hole weight relief in the Les Paul Standard Light Flame’s Grade-A mahogany body make this a superbly comfortable guitar to play, while adding a unique resonance to the tone. The glued-in Grade-A mahogany neck has a rounded ’50s profile, and it topped with a bound Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with frets over binding and traditional trapezoid inlays, plus a commemorative “120th Anniversary” banner at the 12th fret. Burstbucker Pro pickups blend the best of vintage and contemporary characteristics, for deep, rich tones and plenty of cutting power without microphonic squeal at high volumes, plus the new Standard coil- split toggle switch for bonus single-coil tones. Grover Kidney Button tuners, a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece lock it all down for superb sustain and optimum tuning efficiency, while a brown hardshell case keeps it safe from gig to gig.”

I had a local luthier remove the toggle switch that is normally on this guitar for an additional tuning knob that gives this guitar more punch.
