In on consignment is this gorgeous 1978 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe in Cherry Sunburst!


This all-original example has gleaming hardware and a glossy finish, making it very hard to believe it turned 44 this year! The only "flaw" is the missing pickguard and the handful of dents and dings that the naked eye hardly registers when holding it. It's just too beautiful and too fun to play! The frets have seen their fair share of use, but they stand even at about 50-60% of their factory height yielding easy chording and stratospheric bends with no whine! The mini-hums are a delight into just about any amp, but a Bassman or a Super Reverb is the ticket! Super touch sensitive, clear and full, great for rhythm or lead playing.

Included is the original chainsaw case, all the other pertinent deets below :)
