GIBSON LES PAUL SPECIAL Double Cutaway Faded Worn Cherry DC Cut Upgrades! 60467


Regular price $1,150

Gibson Les Paul Double Cut made in the USA. Awesome look.

Description

This is a 2006 Gibson Les Paul Special double cutaway in worn satin Cherry finish. This 12-year-old guitar is in excellent playing condition and has amazing killer light relic wear. Upgraded Grover locking tuners and wooden truss rod cover. Dual P90's combined with the all mahogany body and neck produce grit, sustain, and TONE. This guitar is a work of art more than anything--lightly burnished with just the right amount of wear--so you know she's a girl that's been around--but also been well-treated. Edges artfully show wood beneath the finish. (It looks like the relic guitars the Gibson plant now charges a few grand for.) Neck and frets are all buttery and smooth and itching to be played. These have a thin finish made to let the guitar's tone come through. Slim taper 60s neck with clean frets. No disappointments here--just a great guitar. Weighs in at a trim 6 pounds, 14 ounces. I've sold these before and they go fast--so grab it before someone else does! I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. No case. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking! See below for video demo of similar guitar.

Manufacturer Info

The killer classic double cut with P90 edge and vibrant nitro finish! The nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the Gibson Les Paul Faded Double Cutaway Electric Guitar makes for great looks. But you also get cool feel, wide-open vibrant tone, and a whole lot of guitar for very little cash. Solid mahogany body and set neck add to the resonance and great sustain while classic P90 single-coil pickups provide the sharp bite of the very first Les Pauls. Rosewood fretboard.


Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars 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. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I 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. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. 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.
