    great guitar! I was in love with the finish and I can’t remember if it was a year end blow out or what, but I only payed around $1300 for it brand new so definitely an amazing bang for the buck with the cool twos binding locking tuners and all that. The neck profile did tend to make my hand cramp up after playing for a while but that sort of going boils down to personal preference. The only negative thing I have to say is that the bridge pickup (57 classic +) sounds like absolute garbage imo. I replaced it with an SD pearly gates and was quite pleased.

    I sold it at a time when I basically sold off every piece of gear I owned so it was nothing personal with the guitar

    My 1971 Les Paul deluxe , it was my number 1 guitar for years and it was all beat up. It was refinished a few years ago. When I originally bought the previous owner had sanded it down and painted it black and used a clear coat that had yellowed.it looked like hell. the guitar was originally wine red. its a great guitar its just heavy as hell.

    The funny thing is, I bought it new, for a mind-numbing price (at least for me) and it still has a few minor aesthetic issues, like tooling marks on bindings, some paint bleed from f-holes onto the top, and nut is cut too deep on the D and G strings and pinging..

    Set up perfectly though, and body and neck paint is perfect.. VOS finish is nice too.. I'll have my luthier cut me a new bone nut and get the frets dead level and a pro set up.. ( I dont trust the PLEK)..

    Still a very good guitar, acoustically and plugged in.. and honestly I wont ever find another one like this.. the neck is perfect..
