Product Description

1996 Gibson Les Paul Standard in original Black Finish, creme scratch plate with rosewood finger board. This guitar is nicknamed “Robbo 2” as it is named after Thin Lizzy’s Brian Robertson due to its colour and look resembling his Black Les Paul Custom that he used on the Live and Dangerous Tour in the late 1970’s.

The guitar was made in Gibson Nashville factory in the USA in 1996 and is in excellent condition with a very fast rosewood finger board. The frets show minimal wear and are in perfect condition. The neck is straight and the guitar has a very low fast action and the neck is very comfortable to play.The white binding has aged to a nice cream colour over the years and the guitar is one of the most resonant and best sounding Les Paul I have ever owned. This guitar is very light, weighing just 9.86.lbs which makes it very easy to play on long gigs and is excellent when played acoustically.

The reason I bought this is that it is simply a great playing and sounding guitar. The previous owner changed the pickups to nickel covered burstbuckers. In the neck position it has a burstbucker 1 this provides the classic ‘creaminess’ and edge that typifies a vintage PAF. In the bridge position it has a Burstbucker 2, this gives it a slightly richer, less ‘edgy’ tone that is more towards vintage  sound and slightly hotter than a Burstbucker 1.  So it has the PAF creaminess with a little more bite which was exactly the sound I was looking for. He also changed the tuners to nickel Grovers which in my opinion the best tuners. This is one excellent instrument that works superbly with a Marshall amp giving the right bend of warmth and cut allowing you to be heard.

This guitar is in first class condition with no dents or ding and plays excellently and comes with the original brown Gibson case.
