This 2004 Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded is in excellent virtually unplayed condition with the exception of some small pick scratches on the pickguard. This guitar is extremely tidy. The neck profile is a very nice feeling rounded C shape with a medium chunky carve and a 1 11/16” nut width. The frets are in terrific shape and show virtually no signs of play wear and the fingerboard is also very clean. This Les Paul plays outstanding up and down the fingerboard with low action and great intonation. Both Gibson humbucking pickups sound great and are very balanced. The bridge pickup has a pretty aggressive, biting response that excels for rock and blues while the neck pickup has a round, woody tone that is perfect for jazzy clean tones and thick overdriven leads. The “Faded” finish looks great on on this guitar and offers a more “stripped down” look especially paired with the unbound fingerboard and single ply pickguard. All the electronics and hardware are in perfect operating order and this Gibson is housed in its original Gibson branded “wedge” shaped padded gig bag and includes the original paperwork. If you are looking for a tremendous American made electric guitar at a great price, then look no further!
