As mentioned, this Les Paul Standard is 100% ALL ORIGINAL. There are NO modifications, NO cracks, NO breaks, NO repairs, NO replaced parts, NO nothing.

The original finish looks very nice. It does exhibit some typical expected playing wear, although the finish is unfaded and shows no signs of weather checking. The only fret wear visible is on the first three frets. The pickup bobins have been worn in places from string activity, and the some finish on the back of the neck has been worn to reveal the maple wood underneath. There are expected dings, and superficial belt buckle wear on the back of the guitar, though nothing distracting or significant.

With regard to function, this Les Paul is great. The medium-sized open C-shape neck profile is perfectly straight. The action is low, and the guitar is easy to play. Both pickups work flawlessly, all pots work great, and all corresponding hardware is in appropriate condition.

This guitar weighs a moderate 10 lbs 2 oz., but remember, unlike most of the Les Pauls made today, this guitar is solid and not chambered! The case is in good condition and shows it’s been holding this guitar inside for many years. All latches work perfectly and the case does not exhibit any odors. The original case has 2 era appropriate vintage stickers than can easily be removed prior to shipping if the buyer so chooses, however, both are quite cool.
