TL:DR 100% all original and completely untouched. Original Gibson Plaque case. No issues/breaks repairs/mods. Original Frets are low (~0.025")

Today I present to you the Deluxe version of the Gibson Les Paul  in a Vibrant Wine Red finish from 1976. This piece is completely original including its case and is in Awesome shape. This piece has definitely been played but taken care of extremely well. Its only got a couple tiny dings and some superficial finish scratches and some forearm wear. You can tell its been played because the frets are very low at ~0.025" and which slightly affects the setup. However, this piece is an absolute stunner because its finish is still completely vibrant and full of color and still looks like a new finish but as soon as you touch it you know its an old played in nitro finished specimen. This beast has tons of sustain too, its got a nice 9.14 lbs to it which is right in the middle of what these usually weigh, the thick slab of mahogany really bring out the mid range of each note and does not decay. The completely untouched electronics are a smooth and silky variant to original hum buckers. The are way warmer in the bass and snapier and brighter in the treble, like a beautiful amalgamation of a strat and a lp standard. The 3 pc maple neck is super stable and rigid and adds to that bright snap that this piece offers. The binding has turned to a beautiful cream to match the cream pick-guard and really match the tone of the creamy neck pickup, which is silky smooth. The neck is a slightly slim "C" shape that still has a good amount of shoulder so you still feel it in your hands but its very tamable and not a fat baseball bat by any means. Ultimately if you're looking for that really nice and collectible lp deluxe thats also playable and you like that lp/strat sound and love that luxurious and relaxing wine red color, this piece is definitely for you. Its all original, only thing to really note is the original frets are on the low side yet this piece still plays and sounds amazing. Thanks for looking.

This piece has been fully setup with our "Gilded Treatment." This means instrument has been fully inspected, professionally photographed and documented along will a full deep cleaning of any residual grime and dust. Polished frets to allow you to "glide" over the fretboard. Dialed Nut Height with optimal slots and contact points with lubrication. Action and intonation is dead on and neck relief is perfect. The neck has absolutely no warps or humps and the truss rod turns perfectly with tons of room to turn for seasonal changes. Thank you for looking

You'll be shocked to find how good our pro setup is! A 100$ value free! big bends fretting out is a thing of the past, find out for yourself!

Condition: Very good condition, this instrument was played alot but extremely cared for. The top has a couple microscopic impressions and the left bout has beautiful forearm wear. The back and sides have a couple dings here and there all are superficial. There is very light buckle rash, The finish is extremely reflective and vibrant. The neck has like 1 or 2 tiny little impressions and the around the headstock along the seam there is tiny to small amounts of finish wear. Other wise this piece is crystal clear. The frets are low however and will need to be replaced in the near future to achieve the best possible playability. 

Electronics: Completely Untouched Electronics, Pots date to 22nd week of 76'. No scratchy pots, pots turn linearly from 0-10
