Please note the final price drop $5200 with free 3 day shipping....
Killer playing and sounding Bartlett Retrospec.

This guitar has sustain, tone, and bloom for days...

Ships in an upgraded modern Bartlett HSC--- not the Anvil boat anchor case...

It's truly the best sounding LP singlecut style guitar I've ever had. Almost plays itself, almost. 8.6 pounds

$5200 ppal gift w/free shipping via UPS 3 days insured to CONUS/Canada only. Last price drop, then off to the vault it goes until September.... No CITES paperwork from Tom Bartlett included. No trades, obviously since I can't play guitar much at all

Selling due to orthopedic hand issues (very sad face)

les.paulo56 "AT" gmail "DOT" com ... all payment funds USD only, please.

Real '59 neck shape... not Gibson reissue shape ... these guitars sell for $7800 and have a 8 to 12 month wait list.... and worth it. It breaks my heart to sell... I doubt that I'll ever be able to play a single 90 minute set, or a four set show again. :confused:
