This 2017 Gibson Les Paul Classic T is in overall excellent cosmetic condition showing hardly any signs of play wear throughout. The nitrocellulose finish on the treble side of the top has some weather checking (see photos). The neck profile is very comfortable in hand and is the Gibson 1960 shape which is thinner and faster than the 50s shape with a 1 11/16" nut width. The frets show virtually no signs play wear and have a lifetime of use left in them. This Les Paul has been set up and plays outstanding up and down the fingerboard. The Gibson 57 Classic pickups sound phenomenal in this guitar and deliver all of the fat, articulate and woody tones that you would expect from a Les Paul. This guitar screams through an overdriven amp! The ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge is perfect for keeping your intonation on point and the Grover locking Rotomatic tuning machines keep your tuning rock solid and make string changes a snap. The Surf Green finish was a limited edition option offered by Gibson in 2017 and you don’t see too many of these floating around. This Les Paul stands out in a sea of sunburst Lesters and sounds just as killer as it looks! A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
