    2003 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop ‘58 Reissue.

    Excellent condition. Super clean for 15yo guitar. Typical patina on the Nickel hardware. A couple micro/shallow indentions the size of a pencil tip that you have to look for. A minor indention on the back edge that I can’t capture in a pic. Looks like a really small spot on the side of the headstock has been touched up, was probably a small indent from a guitar hanger. Whoever did it did a great job, can’t feel any difference. I included a close up pic but it’s so minor that it’s extremely hard to see, pretty much all reflection in the pic. It wasn’t even mentioned to me when I bought the guitar and I didn’t complain. :) No worming or buckle rash. Frets show virtually no wear.

    All stock. Burstbucker 1&2 pickups. Gorgeous Madagascar Rosewood fretboard.

    Weighs 9.2lbs.

    Nice chunky ‘58 neck. Haven’t had a chance to measure but this is my favorite era for R7/8 neck carves.

    Setup with top wrapped 10-46 strings and plays great.

    Original hardcase, COA and case candy pictured is included.

    All in all a very clean guitar from a great year for these. You won’t be disappointed.

    Price drop. $2200 plus shipping via check or money order. PayPal ok if buyer covers the fees. Sorry no gift payments. Tons of references available. No longer looking for any trades.

    Thanks for looking.

    This seller is top notch & a great guy to deal with. Great stuff & honest appraisals. Lots of MLP members have bought gear from him & wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again.

    Great price for a good wood year! Is that csb or ice tea? My eyes are not what they use to be.

    I usually prefer flame tops, but this plain top just looks killer. GLWS

    You wouldn't be interested in a trade for a 15 American Deluxe Strat, would you?

    Not to concerned about the year, preferably a Ebony board and chunky neck. I’d want it to be in similar condition.

    A well deserved free bump here. It's hard to believe that this didn't sell at $2400. For $2200 this is an absolute steal for a beautiful plaintop R8 from a great seller. Somebody is going to come out happy with this one.
