GIBSON 2005 Les Paul Double Cutaway Faded Cherry DC Cut Upgraded Pickup! 50334


Regular price $1,199

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

Description

This is a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Special double cutaway in worn satin Cherry finish. Just a beauty of a guitar with some light relic wear (see pics below). Feels like a nicely worn in pair of blue jeans. Upgraded Grover tuners and aftermarket bridge pickup. It may be a "Klein" mini-humbucker, which is a $300 pickup, but I have not pulled the pickup to check. But that's the pickup it looks like. In any case, it really sounds great. I like it better than the P90 and that's saying something. These faded Gibsons have a thin coat of nitro for a satin finish. Slim taper 60s neck and Tune-O-Matic bridge so you can dial in perfect intonation. The double cutaway is a classic look and these blow the doors off the newer gloss Les Paul double cuts with super wide necks, crappy robot tuners, cheap construction among other problems. Weight on this is a very lean 7 pounds, 0 ounces. No case. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

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.
