Post by chrisbower »

Gibson 2001 Les Paul Custom Ebony.

Imported out of Yamano Music Japan, where all the good stuff is.

Simply stunning guitar; the best I've owned.

In fantastic condition for it's age. Binding has started to age beautifully. All fret tangs present. A bit of buckle rash to the back and slight tarnishing to the gold hardware in keeping with age. No signs of any repairs.

Recent fret level and dress as of 15/3/19 and just set up with brand new 10-46 strings.

Everything is good to go. Just love it and enjoy it.

Overseas move forces sale.

$4250 shipped.

I'm sure I've been guilty of similar levels of hyperbole in the past but I do love that every guitar you sell is the best one you've ever owned.

Maybe not quite for the full stay, but should probably at least get checked out. :lol:

You're welcome :) I thoroughly enjoyed the write-up about the DC22 (which as I recall was a disaster that you were hugely up in arms about) being the best of all the PRS guitars you've owned :D

I think it was quite obvious the trade was a disaster; nothing to do with it's merit as being a good guitar. I stand by the fact that it's my favourite PRS I've personally come across, and this Gibson is the best guitar I've owned.

Wee price drop to reflect TradeMe. $4250 takes it.
