This beautiful Limited Edition Pearl Ebony Les Paul Standard was made by the Epiphone custom shop
It is an absolutely stunning guitar in unfaultable working condition with one of the most playable necks I have ever used.
As a Les Paul standard it has two, premium, high output, covered humbucker puckups, which can be toggled between using the 3 way pickup selector switch, with dedicated tone ans volume controls for each pickup
This makes it an extremely versatile guitar and I, personally, have used it to play tone accurate covers of everything from the light, twangy sounds of John Lennon in the Beatles or Mark Knopfler in Dire Straits, through those classic British crunch tones of Brian May and Jimmy Page, to even use it for some metal songs like those of Drenge or Metallica.
The guitar also features Grover tuners which help stop you having to retune the guitar every time you puck it up
It has been a while since the guitar was last restrung but, if you are not confident restringing a guitar yourself, I will gladly restring it for you for just the Â£5 it would cost me to go and buy a new pack of strings.
In terms of wear and tear, the guitar is in like new condition, with the playability of the instrument being completely uneffected by previous use
The only cosmetic sign of wear is one small scratch on the side of the body, just above the straplock, but even this is inna position that I find is always covered by my arm while playing.
I am looking for Â£260 for the guitar but I am, of course, open to reasonable offers
I will be extremely sad to part with the guitar as it is not only so fun to play but also so similar to the styling of my dream guitar, the Gibson Black Beauty, but unfortunately rent must be payed.
Here is what GAK had to say about the guitar when I purchased it:
"Comes ready for the stage with a big attitude! The Epiphone Les Paul Standard may well be the best electric guitar in its price range
