This is a pre-owned Gibson Les Paul, and quite frankly it is the most pristine guitar I have possible ever seen. We found this guitar through an individual seller who looks to have only taken it out of the case a few times to admire it. It still has the original strings, which is not a bonus in our book, just a representation of how untouched the guitar is since it’s manufacturing. We are glad to put fresh strings and oil the fingerboard before sending it to you. Comes with original hardshell case.
