GIBSON LES PAUL Studio LITE 1997 Cherry Sunburst 7.5-lb LP! + HSC USA 77486


Regular price $1,250
This is a very rare 1997 Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite in a beautiful Cherry Sunburst  finish. The main idea with this guitar is you get a Les Paul at just over 7 pounds! The pickups are the legendary 496R in the neck and very powerful 500T in the bridge. I first experienced the 500T in the SG-X model and it's a great pickup. These get a weight-relieved mahogany body with carved maple top. It's matched with a 60s slim taper mahogany neck with ebony fretboard and large trap inlays. This one has all gold hardware in good condition. This guitar is made for a Les Paul lover who is tired of the 10-pound backache machine.
Great condition for an 23-year-old guitar (pics below). The pictures show marks representative of the light wear marks throughout, but nothing major, and has some worming on the back. Frets are in A+ condition. All electronics are quiet and clean. Do yourself a favor and grab this great guitar before someone else does. These are rare and hard to find. Comes with a really nice TKL hard case. 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.
