GIBSON LES PAUL SPECIAL AAA FLAME TOP SEMI-HOLLOW BODY F-Hole FMT Caramel 56537


Regular price $1,101

Absolutely beautiful axe with flame maple top. 

Description
This is a 2014 Gibson Les Paul AAA Flame Top semi-hollow body in excellent playing and cosmetic condition. The book matched flame maple top looks exquisite, while the single F-hole, tummy cut, and chambered body make it a joy to hold and play--weighs in at a mere 7 pounds, 6 ounces. Imagine getting Les Paul tone at under 10 pounds! (Your back and shoulder will thank you.) The '57 Classic/Super pickups are warm and big sounding (both have coil taps), and all the mahogany on body and neck add to the tone. Everything is stock here. Nothing been messed with. Frets are in great shape and it looks to have seen light playing time. Some small marks that do not go deep on the body, and some small chips at tip of headstock (see pics below). Very clean looking, in my opinion a solid 9/10. This guitar is a total head turner but it's got more than good looks and delivers the goods when played. Will come freshly setup and ready to go. Comes with Gibson gigbag. I can also negotiate for a low price on a hard case if that's desired. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained 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.
