I have for sale a used Gibson Les Paul Tribute 2017 HP. I am the second owner, the first owner top wrapped the bridge and added a pick holder under the Gforce tuner. The guitar is in great shape, it was never abused, and has some scuffs in the back from the original owners belt buckle. Please see pics for the condition, I took them today 03/17/23. The case is a gold 2015 Gibson Anniversary Hardshell Case , its got some scuffs from moving around the house, see pics. The guitar plays great as is, but the strings are a couple years old. Feel free to ask any questions or request additional pics.
I have owned three G-force Gibsons. An Explorer, a Les Paul and an SG. I sold the Explorer last year because I couldnt afford to keep all three, and Im now selling my remaining two, because I bought a Gibson Custom 1954 Goldtop and I owe Sweetwater a lot of money.
I personally love the G-force guitars. I never used them for any alternate tunings and they work great. I initially sought them out because of the wide soloist fretboard because of my big fingers.

The titanium adjustable string nut makes getting ideal action a snap. And the fast-access neck heel ensures nothing will inhibit your hand when playing high on the neck.
Fast, accurate tuning
