Back up for is my 2018 Gibson 58 reissue Les Paul in Royal Tea burst, light aging. The guitar has a VERY vintage looking top. Neck is a bit chunkier than an R9, but not as chunky as pre-2013 R8's. Very comfortable. Only mods are both volume pots have been replaced with RS Guitar works super pots. (Originals included). All the case candy is there and case is like new (never used at gigs). More specs:
weight: 8 lbs 11 oz
Pickup: neck 7.96 k
Pickup: Bridge: 7.98 k

The guitar is in very good to excellent condition. It has the normal light pick marks you would see on every guitar and some very small indents on the back from normal playing. One very small indent on the top (hard to get picture). The biggest issue is that there is some discoloration on the binding (and slightly on the top) in one spot where a stage shirt of mine must have rubbed off into the binding. (Shown in pics) Unsure if it can be wetsanded out or not....but hence the great price for a guitar this good.

$3250 shipped and paypaled.

Only trade I'd be interested in is Les Paul replica's.

Does it have any checking and is the case aged?
Thanks

Sorry. Light aging on mainly the hardware. Overall the finish is vos so it looks aged. But no checking...

Mods, please pull this. I've decided to keep it and sell something else.
