This is a Bulldog Les Paul replica kit....its not a real Gibson. Built and finished by a private, independent luthier. This guitar was built with ALL TOP NOTCH Components...no expense was spared!!!! Wolftone CARETAKER pickups, TONE PROS locking bridge/tail, CTS 500k pots with VINTAGE BUMBLEBEE CAPS, Tone Pros tuners The neck is a beefy 57/58 style. Frets have very minor wear.. near perfect....great low action! There are a couple beauty marks and some like checking.....NO CRACKS NO BREAKS NO REPAIRS The fit and finish quality on this guitar is GREAT...non chambered mahogany body with a carved maple cap.....only 8.25 lbs!!!! I would put this up against a $2500 R7 for tone and playability ANY DAY!!! Incredible vintage tone!!!! Hard shell case included. This is a great bargain for an awesome guitar!!!! $900 plus shipping Thanks for looking!
