Selling my Stafford Les Paul. I bought two Les Paul's at the same time and I can't justify keeping this far more luxurious model. Pictures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/153840324@N04/albums/72157691971415801 The Bad: -Appears to be a two-piece back? Not sure why; everything else appears to be top spec (aside from the next bullet point) -Electronics are sub-par. Previous owner must have swapped the goodies. Gotoh pickup in the neck, Gibson (490t? 498t?) in the bridge. -Unoriginal bridge pickup ring -Unoriginal jack plate (black) -Missing toggle switch tip -Missing toggle cover -Bridge was swapped for a Nashville type -Not sure if the white cavity covers are original -Some scratches on the bottom back area -Tiny ding (not through the finish) on the top near the tail piece -Sticker affixed to back of headstock from the previous setup. The previous owner stated that the setup was 50,000yen (a little less than $500), and the sticker allows the guitar to receive free basic services from the same shop. Obviously the sticker is rather useless unless you go back to Osaka! I am leaving it on in case the guitar finds it way back there. The Good: -Brazilian rosewood fretboard, Honduran mahogany, solid quilted maple top, pure nitro finish, fret edge binding (specs have been verified via email from Kurosawa, the shop that ordered these fine guitars) -Very light weight. At least compared to my Argus. I haven't weighed it yet but the previous owner said it weighs 3.7kg / 8.2 pounds. -Just look at it! -Original hardshell case is included (quite nice) Other Details: -Very low action -Rather thin neck; closer to '60 than '59 Asking $2300. Will consider partial trades for an interesting MIJ stratocaster / ES-335.
