• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

...black lights as all original finish, no apparent repairs, all hardware appears original as well.
The seller bought it from first owner a few months back...

Excellent condition. Great way to start a collection. Now play the heck out of it, and don't worry about a ding here and there.

A little set-up time, new strings and a couple of hours plugged in. Plays really nice, sweet neck profile (full with soft shoulders)
and pick-up sounds "really" good. Pots work well and truss rod adjusts fine. Frets show very little wear although the board does
show some minor pitting near the nut...

That is truly sweet! Safely store that case somewhere, and get a padded TKL or ATA case to preserve that bee-u-ti-ful refin when you go out to play.

Nice find...thanks for sharing.
