I've played, bought and sold over 100 Gibson Les Pauls and this is one of the best sounding, and best playing, of them all. I've actually had it about 8 months and was going to keep it as a personal guitar. But, too many guitars and not enough time, so it's ready to move on to its new home.

It has its stock '57 Classic pickups and appears to be all original. As a personal guitar for a short amount of time, I dialed in the action, setup and pickup height to my liking and it really screams. It's hard to play this guitar for less than an hour at a time. It really is one of "the good ones" that is hard to put down because it just has great feel and tone.

I think the magic in the tone is due to its satin finish. Of course the downside to the satin finish is that it's prone to wear. And this one has some signs of wear on the back of the neck, between the pickups, and on the back of the guitar mostly toward the bottom. These spots were all on the guitar when I bought it and never bothered me at all.

The original Gibson hardshell case is clean with no stains or odors. The little the ribbon/hinge thingy has become detached from the top so when open, the case lies fully flat like you see here.
