THIS GUITAR IS PRE-OWNED, with a shining Ebony Gloss finish with a lovely creamy binding and IN GOOD CONDITION. The Gold coloured plate is tarnished and old looking but it gives the guitar that used, played, vintage look very cool.!
Some of the new plate that they put on the new Chinese guitars almost looks Plasticy and cheap by comparison!
We have described it as lightly gigged as it has a few marks here and there that we have tried to show in the pics. The guitar has been Gigged and has acquired some light scratching from belts and buttons etc. There are some dinks on the very top of the headstock please see pics.
No Scratchplate on this Les Paul but these Ebony Guitars just look cool without them.
There are New Black Custom Knobs.
There is a new Jack Socket Plate but it is not the correct size so its fitted with onl 1 screw so as to not ruin the original drilled holes. The correct sized plate can be sourced here on ebay easily and cheaply, we have shown it clearly in the pictures.
Look at the pictures of the whole of the back to get a good idea of the very very light marks from belts and buckles... In an effort to show the guitar as clearly and transparently as possible we have included large Hi Def Pictures below....these close ups actually make it look worse than it is, all of them are insignificant and don't really show unless under close inspection.
This guitar is not pristine or mint...its been played and it has a few minor scratches and blemishes but that's where a guitar gets its identity and mojo from. A pristine guitar that never gets used can quite often be a soul less guitar.
