2018 Gibson Les Paul Classic P-90 Electric Guitar Goldtop Near Mint w/ Case & Hangtags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2018 Gibson Les Paul Classic P-90 in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hangtags, case candy, and hardshell case. An uncommon iteration of the Classic platform outfitted with P-90 pickups, this Les Paul evokes a mid-50s tonal profile with plenty of bark, cutting roar, and sparkling top end articulation. These overwound single coils are mounted in a solid, non-weight relieved mahogany body capped with a carved two-piece maple cap for a traditional Les Paul tonewood complement that balances mahogany's warmth and fullness and the note attack and detail of maple. Well balanced on a strap at 9lbs 11oz, this Les Paul Classic has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with fresh 9-42 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The one-piece mahogany neck has Gibson's SlimTaper C profile, a very slender shape with modest shoulder at the nut and just a bit more overall heft and roundness as you travel up the fingerboard, measuring .785" deep at the 1st fret and .875" at the 12th. The dark bound rosewood fretboard has lightly rolled edges and flawless slender fretwire, playing cleanly up the 24 3/4" scale with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width, and the headstock is fitted with nickel-plated Grover Rotomatic tuning machines which turn very smoothly and hold pitch reliably.

The electronics all function as intended, with an untouched wiring harness and Orange Drop tone caps. The nickel hardware and plastic parts are clean as can be, and the gloss nitro lacquer Goldtop finish is stunningly clean with a couple isolated lines of light lacquer checking adjacent to the knobs, and a few exceedingly faint finish scratches in the clear coat of the gloss on the back. The gloss finish on the neck profile is flawless.

The original brown tolex Gibson hardshell case is included, along with all hangtags and case candy.
