Up for sale, a 2019 Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s electric guitar in near mint, 100% original condition, complete with its brown Gibson USA case, hangtags and case candy. Weighing 9lbs 4oz, this Les Paul delivers the punch and singing sustain befitting its reputation with the traditional tonewood combination of a mahogany body and carved two-piece figured maple top. The Burstbucker #1 and #2 PAF humbuckers feature Alnico II magnets and deliver an array of traditional Gibson tonalities, with a dynamic and harmonically-rich bridge pickup, while a neck position humbucker is fat and sweet, retaining ideal clarity. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Les Paul Standard '50s is dialed in with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
The neck has Gibson's 50s-style C-shaped profile carve with generous shoulder and a substantial feel, measuring .880" deep at the 1st fret and .985" at the 12th. On the bound rosewood fretboard, the frets are flawless, and the guitar plays cleanly in all registers with a straight neck and optimally adjusted truss rod. The GraphTech nut has Gibson's traditional 1 11/16" width. The headstock retains the "Standard" truss rod cover and features Gibson Deluxe bolt bushing tuning machines with keystone buttons.
All of the electronics function as they should, and the pickups have Gibson USA-embossed baseplates and their dated Burstbucker stickers. The harness is hand-wired with Gibson-embossed Alpha 500k pots and premium Sprague Orange Drop tone caps. The nickel hardware shows just a faint speckling of patina on the tailpiece, and plastics include the quartet of amber bonnet knobs and the pickguard which retains its clear protective factory film and sticker. The two-tone Vintage Sunburst gloss finish has just a hint of red as the burst transitions from amber to black, highlighting broad flame figuring across the lower bout. Cosmetic wear is limited to just a couple exceedingly faint finish scratches in the clear coat of the nitro lacquer gloss, while the gloss on the neck profile is flawless.
The original brown tolex Gibson USA hardshell case is included, along with all hangtags and case candy.
