Gibson 2016 Les Paul CM Black Satin Ebony Guitar ’61 Zebra HB Clean! 32227
This is a 2016 Gibson Les Paul CM (short for "chick magnet" believe it or not) in satin ebony finish. Features:
— Killer hand rubbed satin finish on carved maple top
— Mahogany body & neck w/ rosewood board
— '61 Zebra humbucker w/ strategically mismatched coils for PAF tone
These Les Pauls have a very light and thin body (only 7 pounds 4 ounces!) and a rare one pickup setup and classic wraparound bridge. These have become a favorite for modders, as they provide a nice clean Gibson USA canvas, which you can do a lot with. This one has not been messed with and is all stock. Thin finish won't choke your tone. It sounds great and plays great. Frets are clean.
Cosmetically, very clean. Near mint, but probably has some tiny scuff somewhere. No case. Details on my setups and packing, as well as full specs, at bottom of listing. Thanks for looking!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
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!
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 15 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 "Still Kickin - How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
The CM's no-nonsense looks don't detract a bit from its full Les Paul pedigree, with the classic tone wood combination of carved maple top and mahogany body, a glued-in mahogany neck with original heel and width. Guitar also has a thicker rosewood fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish and other details all contributing to full-bore looks, feel and tone. A satin nickel wrap over bridge contributes to the rock-hard sustain and slinky playing feel that so many players love, and the guitar is setup by hand to play the way any truly great American-made guitar should.
