This is a lovely Gibson Les Paul Standard built in Nashville USA in 1991, finished in alluring Wine Red. This is an easy playing Les Paul with a super comfortable neck, great tone, and a distinctive look.
The cream binding and dark rosewood fingerboard complement the finish and complete its colour palette perfectly. The 50s style medium C shape neck is very easy to move around. It is not one of the super slim 1960 style necks from the early 90s LP Classics. This one feels very comfortable – not too thin, and not too fat – just right for most players.

This Les Paul is a good one from 1991. It has been played, but really well looked after. It has some very light buckle wear and a few nicks on the back and on the headstock, but the neck and top are clean. The frets show little sign of wear. The neck is straight and the truss rod is functioning perfectly.
This LP Standard is a good, straight guitar almost 20 years old but not showing its age. Apart from the bridge it is in unchanged condition with no issues and a good, strong neck. A classic Gibson from “the good era” of Les Pauls with lots of miles left on the clock.
Comes in a later Gator hard case with inner shroud in good condition.
