    Gorgeous 2008 Les Paul Custom Shop Historic R7 in ebony (front and back)

    This guitar really plays and sounds great. Very recent professional pickup install and setup.
    Nice, chunky neck - as typical of R7's
    Frets are good
    Fingerboard is dark rosewood with some beautiful grain
    Includes Historic case (some scuffing), COA, case candy
    Has one ding on the front (as pictured)
    Some belt rash on the back side
    Missing one volume pointer
    Binding is in really good condition, with maybe a spot or two of missing lacquer
    8 lbs, 10 oz on my digital kitchen scale

    Upgrades
    Gibson Burstbucker #1 and #2 Zebra pickups
    Tonepros Kluson-style tuners
    Nickel jackplate (original broken plate included)
    New Aged Switch tip (original included)

    No one is spending money, anywhere it seems....This thing is so nice and a new Standard will set you back more I don't get it. I'm tired of trying to figure out the used guitar market. Ok, I'm done.

    T-Man, isn't that the truth? Perhaps someone is waiting for their tax refund check to come in...

    Why has nobody bought this? This is a VERY fair price.
