Gibson Les Paul Standard | 2007
This is a 2007 Gibson Les Paul Standard in fantastic condition! Absolutely beautiful Les Paul Standard, plays hot, low, and fast. Not so heavy in weight too. Actually it is one of the lightest Gibson Les Pauls. It is a perfect instrument for the all rounder guitarist: blues, jazz, rock-a-billy. The neck is in great shape, slim taper feel, bound fretboard with much life in frets. Body has cream binding, a wonderful maple top with vintage sunburst finish that looks impeccably iconic. No major dings at the top, light finish scratches from picking, chrome on hardware has been kept in good condition. The back of body is also in good condition with minor markings but nothing too deep within the finish. Overall, a great Les Paul guitar that keeps all the low end while saving your back! Also comes with upgraded Grover machine heads and original hard case.
The Les Paul Standard has been through its share of changes since the '50s, but remains one of the world's most popular and iconic instruments. From the late '70s onward, the Standard has stayed more or less the same with just some variations in finish and hardware options.
