GIBSON LES PAUL SPECIAL Double Cutaway +HSC Faded Worn Cherry DC Cut P90 84473
This is a 2004 Gibson Les Paul Special double cutaway in satin Cherry finish. This 15-year-old guitar is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition and comes with an SKB TSA hard case. These have a thin finish made to let the guitar's tone come through. Dual P90's make for a great combination on the all mahogoany body and neck. Lots of grit and sustain to the tone. The guitar is in beautiful condition with minor playing marks throughout (see pics). Slim taper 60s neck and frets are in excellent condition. All electronics are clean and quiet. No disappointments here--just a great guitar. Weight is a trim 6 pounds, 13 ounces. I've sold these before and they go fast. TSA case has the heavy duty flight-rated latches. It's just been given a full cleaning and setup. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

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.
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.
