There are no pictures available for this electric guitar
Purchased new in 1998. 1996 manufacturing date (serial # 6 3564). In excellent condition (a few dings on top). AAA Premium Plus flame maple top. Slimmer profile neck as on the 1960 Standard. Features of reissue Les Pauls including smaller headstock, nickel hardware, ABR-1 bridge, Kluson style tuners, and vintage style knobs.
I personally upgraded the 496R and 500T ceramic magnet pickups to Seymour Duncan pickups with a JB in the bridge and an SH-2n Jazz in the body, along with "Jimmy Page" electronics including push-pull pots on both volume and tone controls to allow for single/dual coil and in-series/parallel operation, producing an extremely wide variety of tones (this is the current status of the guitar).
I will provide one of two options for the buyer to choose:
1) Keep the Seymour Duncan pickups with "Jimmy Page" wiring" -- I will take the guitar to a highly-respected Gibson-authorized service center in my area to have the wiring inspected, with improvements made as the service person deems necessary. If you choose this option, I will also include the guitar's original pickups and volume and tone pots should you wish to return the guitar to its original specification in the future.
2) Return the guitar to its original electronics-- I will take the guitar to the same Gibson-authorized service center and have the guitar returned to its original factory electronics which include its original 496R and 500T ceramic magnet pickups and volume and tone pots. The original pickups do not allow for single/dual coil or in-series/parallel operation. This option will not include the Seymour Duncan pickups once they are removed.
I will also include nickel strap locks, two nickel pickup covers, a cream pick guard which was never installed, four "speed knobs" (which look very similar to the knobs shown but have a shape that makes them easier to pull), and hardshell case.
I will provide more photos to serious buyers.
