1978 Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst
'78 Gibson Les Paul Standard 100% Original, EXCELLENT condition, with original chainsaw case. The original owner purchased this guitar in late 1978 from Manny's Music in NYC.
Guitar is in near mint original condition. Aside from new strings and regular polishing, nothing has been altered at all. Solid 2 piece mahogany body and 3 piece maple neck. The finish is perfect except for some light buckle rash and a few chips on rear of body. Rosewood neck (with pearl trapezoid inlays) is perfectly straight with no wear on either back or fretboard...frets are like new and completely original. Original T-Top pickups and all chrome looks like the day it was made.
Weighing in at 10lbs this baby plays and sounds beautiful with very low action and no buzz. This guitar is a real "closet queen", having never left the original owner's house. Guitar has been played only once or twice a year since the early '90s!! The near mint condition, spectacular finish and original, un-modified, barely used quality make this guitar a rare find. Includes the original chainsaw case, also in near mint condition.
