The Gibson Les Paul 1960 Classic pays homage to one the most sought after guitars in history – the original 1960 Les Paul. This one is a great player from 2006, finished in definitive Ebony gloss – reminiscent of that great cover painting on Jeff Beck’s Blow By Blow album.

Some scratches & buckle rash are present, with a finish chip on the face of the lower bout. No tarnishing of the metal parts, and structurally sound all over. Neck is solid and straight, truss rod works perfectly, tuners exact. Some wear on lower frets but lots of mileage left. The trapezoidal fingerboard inlays are turning that classic luminous green that only comes with a little age.
A working musician’s guitar with some stories to tell, and with that classic, beefy LP sound that cannot be duplicated.
Comes in original Gibson hard case in worn condition, with inner shroud.
