    Just pulled the trigger on this mint 78 LPC.I have been looking for a long time for one as clean as this one and the wait was worth it.Cool footnote for me it was built on my wife's birthday.Now the hard part...the wait!! Here are a few of the seller's pic more to follow when it's in my hands.

    It's so nice.

    That nice, and the refret..... makes me think it was made for Les Paul himself.

    Story on the refret is original owner did not like the low "fretless wonder" frets so he had it refretted.

    How about a gratuitous control cavity pic?
    Should have untouched solder joints.

    These are awesome guitars.
    Yours is spectacular!
    I have owned my '78 since 1980 and I have loved it ever since. Great score.

    Ironic that this came on Les Paul's birthday.I could not be happier with this guitar.The pictures do not do it justice.
