This is a lovely Gibson Les Paul Standard built in Nashville USA in 1998, finished in a bright cherry sunburst. The cream binding and dark rosewood fingerboard complement the finish and complete its colour palette perfectly.
The 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 1998. It has been played, but really well looked after. It has some very light button swirls on the back and a few nicks 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 is a good, straight guitar now over 20 years old but not showing its age. It is in unchanged condition with no issues and a comfortable, strong neck. This is an easy playing Les Paul Standard with great tone and a distinctive look.
Comes in its original Gibson hard case in good condition.
