    I really hate to sell this, but just bought an R8 so it has to go.

    1988 Les Paul Custom, Tobacco sunburst, I'm in the process of putting it back to stock. Gibson HB-L bridge pickup and Shaw neck pickup that were stock and will be back in it, as well as the black speed knobs (I'm keeping the reflectors!). Ebony fretboard, nashville bridge, gold hardware.

    The top on this one is flawless. Very glossy and looks brand new. It has to be one of the cleanest tops I've seen on a custom in a while. Three piece maple top. I pulled the pickguard off and filled the holes with some wood filler, but you can easily screw it back on. I do not have the original case, but it includes a brand new Road Runner hardcase with gray interior. Frets are in great shape, no dings or scratches that I'm aware of. The back has some almost like smudges on it in certain places, but nothing serious.

    $3200 OBO via paypal. Not looking for trades on this one because I need the cash for the R8.

    PM me if interested.

    If I had to guess I'd say between an R9 and R0. I don't think it is overly slim IMHO. I think it is very comfortable personally, but that is subjective to player preference. :thumb:
