GIBSON LES PAUL SPECIAL Rare Mini-Inlays! 490R / 498T PU 2005 USA Black 51543

Regular price $850

This is a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Special in ebony finish with the rare mini-trapezoid inlays. Looks great with the cream pickup surrounds and gold knobs. No pickguard. Mahogany body and neck. Pickups are a pair of chrome covered legendary 490 Seriers humbuckers. Frets are in A+ condition and playability is top notch. Cosmetically it's about 8/10 condition with various small marks but nothing ugly. One tuner turns a bit out of true, but it works and holds tune. Weight is 7 pounds, 14 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. 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!
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.
