This is really a special guitar. Plays just as you would expect a Les Paul to sound... from velvety jazz tones to punk screeches to everything in between. The guitar has been well cared for and, with the exception of some buckle rash on the back, the rest of the guitar is in showroom condition. The rash is not visible while you're playing but is indeed noticeable. The rash has been buffed as much as possible, and I don't really notice it any more. It doesn't affect the integrity of the instrument but contributes to you getting an otherwise perfect guitar at a lower price. Comes with original case in 8/10 condition (some wear but clean and structurally solid). Comes in uber-sexy wine red with gold hardware and pearl appointments. A beauty to look at, to hold, and to play. Check my feedback ... bid with confidence ... also please check out my other auctions. Happy bidding.
