    2003 Gibson Les Paul Standard

    I’m GAS’ing for another guitar that came up for sale on this site, so I’m throwing this out there. Never dreamed I’d ever consider putting this up for sale. This was and is my dream guitar. 2003 Les Paul Standard with RS Guitar Works pots/caps and RS GuitarWorks/Lindy Fralin PAF humbuckers that really capture that PAF sound that everyone looks for. Bridge and tailpiece are locking Tone Pros that really help when changing the strings and increases the sustain. Also, this is not a light guitar and comes in at just over 9 lb on my bathroom scale. This guitar has never been out of my home, except when going to the shop for tune-ups. There are some swirl marks but nothing through the finish (It’s 16 years old after all), and over all I’d say conservatively it’s 7.5/10. Comes with original Gibson case.

    Also worth noting, the first 2 pics are from sometime last year. The last one is from today.


    I might pull this sale at any time if the guitar I’m looking for sells first.

    Looking for $2250.00 plus shipping

    Very good years for LPs

    I'm sure someone will ask the question, so: 60's or 50's neck?

    I’m also putting up my 1997 ES-335 which is aging nicely, and has just started to develop some checking. Has some moderate dings and bumps but nothing major, just what you’d expect from a guitar of this age. The guitar is pretty much stock, except for the bridge with was replaced with a Callaham bridge and posts (originals included). Has a 60’s neck and tall frets which makes it a very easy guitar to play. Again, I’m only putting this up to raise funds for another guitar so it may be withdrawn at any time. And for the same reason no trades unless you have a True Historic Les Paul which could tempt me.

    Looking for $2800.00

    Definitely not a'50's neck, but not a slim '60's neck either.

    What they called a 50's neck in that era was closer to a '59 neck in thickness... close to their best IMO
