Up for sale, a 2018 Gibson Les Paul Classic P-90 in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and upgraded with a pair of boutique Lollar P-90 pickups. An uncommon iteration of the Classic platform, this Les Paul evokes a mid-50s tonal profile, delivering plenty of nuanced bark, cutting roar, and glassy top end articulation. The upgraded pair of Lollar P-90s 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 10lbs 5oz, 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 .800" deep at the 1st fret and .850" 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 locking Grover Rotomatic tuning machines which turn very smoothly and hold pitch reliably.
The electronics all function as intended, with the Lollar P-90s soldered to the original wiring harness and Orange Drop tone caps. The nickel hardware is bright and clean with just a hint of patina on the Nashville bridge and stopbar, and plastic parts are near mint. The gloss nitro lacquer Pelham Blue finish is a particularly vibrant shade of this Gibson custom color, and the guitar is stunningly clean with just 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 the hangtag/warranty card.
