A Completely 100% all Original Gibson Les Paul Standard in superb condition with only one owner and absolutely no problems. The natural relic on this one is gorgeous! Look at how much this neck was played, it almost morphs to the hand because of allow the play time on it and has an extremely smooth feel on the thin nitro. This one came out of the factory with the gibson tulip tuners which are my favorite as well as the golden speed knobs instead of the top hats which are very classy looking. A total monster of a player, this thick boy roars with the Original T-Tops and hefty 10.6 solid mahogany body, its rare to find unaltered standards that have been played through but not abused. Plays awesome, really low action with the original fretless wonder frets, intonation is perfect and neck has no problems, truss rod turns just fine and the neck relief is excellent.

Condition: Very very good condition for a vintage instrument thats been played so much, you can tell this one has seen the stage, look at that color now of the "white" binding around the body. Obviously there is some wear and tear, the top however, has very little and looks mint from a distance. The back has an area of buckle rash, and a few marks but really not much, and the sides have some dings in them, all clearly pictured. The neck is gorgeous with the thin nitro that has naturally worn over time, neck joint and heel joints are perfect, absolutely no cracking or internal problems. Headstock is in perfect condition a few marks here and there all pictured. Ultimately and outstanding preservation of a monster playing Les Paul from 1979. 

Original Gibson T-Tops stamped 1979 as well as all original pots from mid '78. Untouched solder joints means those juicy electrons are flowing and you can hear it in the sound, I cranked this thicc boi as soon as I got him and the old neighbors got flash backs to Woodstock.
