1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard – Red finish, original gold plating, fully original

$ 3495.00

This is a 1982 Les Paul Standard, in good condition, and fully original. The original red finish shows normal playing wear. The back of the neck has smooth playing wear, and the front of the body has finish wear between the pickguard and the cutaway. There are some other areas of wear and nicks and dings that I’ve concentrated on showing them in the closeup pics.

The original wiring harness has untampered solder joints, as seen in the last 3 close-ups, and the original pickups were built during Tim Shaw’s time at Gibson. The original pot codes are 1378135, which translates to CTS manufactured during the 35th week of ’81. The guitar plays well and sounds great. It is a limited production run as the second serial number below ‘MADE IN USA’ on the back of the headstock is #120, as seen in the close-up. AND: This guitar is fully gold-plated, all the parts and hard wear… fully gold-plated at the factory!! A rare LP Standard indeed.

This Gibson Les Paul weighs 10 pounds 15.8 ounces and comes in its original Gibson ‘chainsaw’ black plastic case with all working hinges and latches. And, this fine vintage Gibson has its original owner’s manual still in the case pocket.
