1993 Gibson Les Paul Standard, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, 100% Original w/ Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1993 Gibson Les Paul Standard in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. This Les Paul was produced during what is increasingly known as the "Good Wood Era," featuring the classic tonewood complement of a mahogany body with a carved two-piece maple top, mahogany neck, and bound rosewood fretboard.

Via the original 490R and 498T humbucker pair, the guitar has plenty of power on tap, and these alnico magnet pickups cover a wide tonal range. The 490R is Gibson's Modern Classic humbucker, featuring Alnico II magnets and similar in its response to a PAF, yet with more midrange emphasis. The 498T Hot Alnico bridge position pickup has Alnico V magnets, with plenty of muscle and growl, well-suited for high gain scenarios. Weighing 9lbs 5oz, this Les Paul has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
