You can hardly say that a Les Paul that is now around 20 years old is rare guitar, yet equally you don’t come across many fine examples in guitar stores today – So let me update you with a few key details regarding this exceptionally clean Gibson Les Paul Standard, with a vintage sunburst nitro gloss finish – It is used with an 8 digit serial number that easily allows you to pin point it as a 2000 model – It weighs 9lbs and 15oz, which is not the lightest LP you’ll find, but on par with many similar models from the late 90’s – Overall it is in excellent condition with little in the way of any negative comments to report – Any slight graze to the top surface of the finish is minimal – Any merest hint of a ding is barely worth a mention – In short, you very rarely find a 20 year old Gibson Les Paul in such a clean condition, as we have here – The deluxe Gibson black case is again in clean condition, with the handle + latches all in good working order – Re-strung + set-up with a new set of 10/46 gauge strings and a sensible easy action
- Other than a pair of Dunlop locking strap buttons this LP Standard is all original throughout – No fret changes – No repairs – No headstock breaks etc etc
- Grover machine heads with kidney tuning buttons
- Original Gibson pick-ups with the neck measuring a paf flavoured 7.5K and the bridge somewhat hotter at 13.23K – This suggest the 490R + 498T combination
- Original pots, switch and wiring loom
- One piece mahogany body
- The one piece mahogany neck has a comfortable C profile that measures .817″ around the top nut end and .960″ around the 12th fret – Slimmer than a 50’s neck profile – remember in 2000 only one neck size available on the LP Standard
- Frets are fine
- Smooth + even grained rosewood fingerboard
How does a Les Paul sound ? – Do I really need to tell you ? Suffice to say that as you play a few laid back licks, chords, riffs and screaming lead licks, through a clean or overdriven amp setting, you quickly notice you are playing a Les Paul – It’s musical, its fat, its warm, it can scream and bark, but it can smoother you with lush qualities as well
