2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard

Les Paul Standard from 2005. Burstbucker pickups, as installed by factory. Previous owner changed tuners to Sperzel locking. Not normally a big fan, but they really are an improvement here. What appear to be Dunlop straplocks also added. The top has a moderate flame, with what I think is honey blond finish. Look at the pix and judge. Case is the black Gibson USA hardshell with interior shroud. Shroud is detached at lower bout area (see pic). Otherwise intact. In 2005 these came with choice of ’59 or ’60 Slim Taper neck. I’m no expert, but this seems to fall in between. Certainly not the club and not the whip either. Very nice action and feel. Some modest fret wear in the cowboy chords. No fretting out or rattles. I have a touch of arthritis and play mostly jazz. This thing feels great and if it were an archtop, you wouldn’t see it up for sale. I opened the control cavities and lifted the pickups. No sign of disturbance. The pickups are the original Burstbuckers. Good appearance. Free from gouges,scratches and buckle rash. Shjips when payment clears. Lower 48 only.
