GIBSON 1981 FIREBRAND THE PAUL Deluxe Pelham Blue Les Paul 71613


Regular price $1,350
Description
You're looking at a really cool vintage 1981 Gibson Firebrand The Paul Deluxe guitar in rare Pelham Blue (faded to green as is normal). It is in good shape for a 40-year-old guitar though it has some playing marks (see pics). Frets are in good shape with some mild flattening. Has the stock T-top humbucker in the bridge, and what is probably a replacement unbranded humbucker in the neck position. These are an upgraded version of "The Paul" model with mahogany body, ebony fretboard, and black headstock. Set up nicely and ready to play. Weight is 8 pounds, 10 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
