Electric Solid Body1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard

One owner since new, ordered from Gibson in 1960 and received 2 weeks later. This guitar known to Willie for last 30 years. It's never been played professionally and most importantly it's never been taken apart. Are the pick-ups "white bobbins"? Don't know. Don't care. We are never going to look... get over it.

The screws that hold the pickup rings in place have never been turned - the finishing in the heads untouched - do you wanna open the tomb first? Look at the nut. The original lacquer is unbroken that covers the binding and the nut. Look at the frets... do you see any play wear?

Also look at the photo of the inside cavity - yes we opened the access cavity - the "fairy dust" of the buffing rouge used at the factory for polishing the finish is still inside the cavity. The solder is original. Even the jack has never been changed.

So often in the past 15 years these poor guitars get pulled apart by "experts" who break down guitars for provenance,that is all and well for guitars that have seen duty. But when a guitar comes in from an original owner as historians we must resist that urge of Curious George and keep it safe from this molestation for next generations. This guitar is factory original.

SOLD.
