Wow this things pretty. Nice to see a figured back and front every once in a while despite how rare they're to get. I particularly like the mother of pearl knobs on this one, rarely works on other models and often looks cheap but seems to do the trick on this. Overall a masterpiece of design, all of the specs are top notch as mentioned above. Condition wise, wear is on the very light side. Just some pick and polish swirling to the nitro gloss finish. Nothing nasty and nothing i can pick up with the camera. one very light scar to the top horn on the back surface. Frets are also full any merest hint of wear is not worth a mention
This Les Paul plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are full. The pick-ups sound awesome and everything works as it should. Comes in hardshell case with all the paperwork.
