Gibson Les Paul LPB-1 Bass Rare 2007 Mahogany Version Clean! 70537
You're looking at a 2007 Gibson LPB-1 Les Paul bass in a brown mahogany finish. This is a vintage 14-year-old Gibson bass in excellent playing and cosmetic condition. These have Thunderbird pickups for massive bottom end. Mahogany body and rosewood fretboard. Controls are Volume, Treble, Bass and Pickup Balance.
This 2007 model was made after the earlier runs that had a gloss finish. This has a thin satin finish that will open up your tone. The chrome bridge is different than the black one on the early LPB-1s, but it is factory stock. Also these do not have a Bartolini preamp featured on the early LPB-1s.
Frets are in A+ condition. Neck plays really smooth. Almost no play wear beyond a few tiny marks (see pics). No case. Weight is 9 pounds, 3 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. Thanks for looking! (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

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!
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.
