Gibson 1980-1981 Sonex Standard with Original Hardshell Case. Vintage. Condition is Used. You’re checking out a 1981 Gibson Sonex standard. There are lots of deluxe’s out there but the standard is pretty damn hard to come by. Far as I could tell, everything is original except the nut and the pickup selector switch. As you can tell it’s like a Les Paul but thinner and has a bolt-on neck. Dot inlays as well. Made in the USA. This guitar has got 40 Years of playing on it but it has been cleaned thoroughly and gone through. Everything works just fine on it. Pickups sound great. Pots are clean. The neck is flat and straight. The wiring allows you to split the humbuckers into single coils. However, the negatives are that it does have signs of use on it. The frets have quite a bit to use on them. They function 100% but eventually I would recommend a refret. Has the original Sonex case from Gibson. One of the clasps is broke on it though. After stripping it down to every piece, cleaning it and rebuilding it, it turned out quite nice. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thank you for looking!
