Gibson 1998 Les Paul Standard DC Double Cut Flame Top Clean! 98376


Regular price $1,899
Description
This is a 1998 Gibson Les Paul Standard double cutaway in transparent red finish. Absolutely beautiful guitar with the highly figured flame maple top. One piece mahogany body with maple cap. Fully bound 24-fret mahogany neck with trapezoid inlays. 

These get 490R/498T humbucking pickups and a tune-o-matic bridge. Simple Volume/Tone and 3-way switch setup. Grover kidney bean tuners and a nice headstock inlay are up top. The deep double cut body allow for easy access to high frets, which are medium jumbo by the way. These are quality made USA guitars and with 23-year-aged woods you can't ask for much more. Cosmetically amazingly clean for its age. One edge mark shown in pics. Frets in good shape with mild wear. No 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 setups are done by our in-house 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.
