Woah. Thats all you can say when you take a look this absolute beefcake of a guitar. Solid one piece mahogany body with a fat, disgustingly evil p90 soapbar. The Cherry finish shines like a diamond, retaining its immaculate finish through all these years with subtle lacquer checking that master builders wish to recreate. Simple and ingenious, this body design was a huge step away from the les paul shape with sleek contours that are super comfortable and sleek. Although the Headstock and name include Les Paul he in fact did not play any role in this design, it was actually larry allers, an innovative madman who redesigned a new killer body shape. You will be hard pressed to find a cleaner example of this sexy devil in completely original condition save the input jack thats in the case and a Older but non original Gibson USA Case. Fully inspected, cleaned, polished, and setup with a fresh set of D'addario 10's. Thank you

Condition: All Original and 95% mint condition save 1 or 2 tiny pin sized dings on the body and a small one of the back of the neck. Absolutely zero issues or cracks, crystal clear finish, beautiful crazed lacquer checking to die for, headstock is in immaculate condition that has miraculously stayed pristine after almost 60 years. NO BUCKLE RASH! Try to find a cleaner one.

All original electronics, replaced input jack (in case). Fixed a grounding issue, a cold solder joint on back of pickup plate otherwise factory solder joints that contribute to the juicy and fat tone. This is the angus young guitar that defined an generation. If strats are the angels this is the devil, it cracks and screams and does not hold back, you cannot plug this guitar in until you have 2 tube screamers back to back set to 10. Enjoy.
