1978 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe

With its tobacco sunburst finish and mini humbucker pickups this late 1970’s Gibson Les Paul Deluxe is a great looking guitar. It’s in very fine condition and is completely original as well, with not much playwear to the finish or frets.

Maple top and neck, mahogany body, bound ebony fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays. Original Kluson Gibson-branded tuners, cream-plastic hardware, original bridge and tailpiece, and original nut. All electronics are original and unmodified. Set-up is excellent, and the guitar plays beautifully. The guitar’s only flaws, however minor, are a chip in the truss-rod cover and a sticker suntan on the pickguard. This one weighs in at 10.05 Lbs, typical of Les Pauls from this era.

With original hardshell case
