This listing is for a beautiful near-mint 2017 Gibson Les Paul Traditional (non-chambered) with upgraded ThroBack pickups created from a forensic study of Paul Kossoff’s (From the band FREE) actual pickups. The pickups alone cost me $600 after taxes. I’m going to spell out the extra costs like this just to give the viewer a run down of the specific guitar they are viewing.
The original Gibson Burstbucker pickups and original wiring harness will be included as well in case someone would for some crazy reason want to return the guitar to stock. The wiring harness was also upgraded with oil-in-paper Emerson “Bumble Bee” capacitors and over spec’d pots which cost me around $200 before even installing it. Also included is a brand new Gibson Historic “Cali-Girl”case (Cost an extra $450) based on the Lifton cases of the 1940’s-50’s. I never intended on selling this guitar, it was supposed to be my keeper. I hate to let it go. The Kossoff pickups are slightly aged so the guitars hardware is mildly aged to match. The top of the guitar has a mellow “VOS” sheen to it, the back is still high gloss.
This guitar is virtually unused, has only a few minor signs of use. A few micro blemishes etc but you sort of have to search to find them. The neck is straight, plays great. 50’s fatter neck. The guitar itself sound tremendous, it’s a tone monster. I am not a retail seller and am just selling my personal gear so I can not afford to offer satisfaction guarantees or trial periods etc, so please ask any necessary questions ahead of purchase and I’ll try to answer things the best I can. Thanks for your interest!
