Moe's Guitars, Our philosophy: If we wouldn't play it, we wouldn't sell it; it's that simple.
Let's start by saying if finish wear, finish checking, finish chipping, aged binding, paint missing and rash bother you RUN!
If a players grade instrument whose integrity is spot on without any head stock breaks or repairs in the 18 years rocks your world then this might be the Les Paul you are looking for. In all honesty people pay big bucks to get their guitar to look this way.
With the exception of the witch hat knobs that will be changed back to the original speed knobs the instrument appears all original. It does not have the rounded 50's neck, but a slim taper, which is unusual for a LPC. The original fret wire was leveled. and crowned, but has years of life left. The instrument plays well without dead spots, but does have a few notes that when played unplugged have a tiny buzz. It weighs 9 lbs 12.5 ozs and ships in a after market hard-shell case.
