Randy Rhoads style Les Paul Custom.Very rare Antique Ivory is a beautiful creme color Like an aged white Gibson.Super nice condition.Very little play wear.Gold hardware,triple bound,bound headstock.Installed Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro II in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan 59 in the bridge.That really brought this beauty up to a Hi-End sound.Plays great,neck is a medium profile,very comfortable to play.No issues whatsoever.Ready to play.Includes the original Gold Epiphone pickups and a Hardshell Case.Will be well packed in a guitar box and shipped without delay with tracking info provided.

The guitar was $699, the pups were $200 (installed by a tech) & the case was $70. That's nearly $1K. Will sell for $600 shipped and paypalled.

Would consider trade for\towards a nice Strat!




Now, the Telecaster -

No issues, no smoke, scratches, or the like. Almost mint as I've only played it a handful of times thinking I'd be "Brad Paisley" or "Keith Urban" but it ain't happening! Comes with Fender Deluxe Gig-bag and wrench. Finally, let me mention a word about the 'Jumbo Frets'; they may be called 'Jumbo' by Fender but they are very comfortable to play. I hardly notice any difference from them to the Strat's that I've played for years with 'Medium' frets. These run $850 new; mine is $700!!!

Fender rolls out the American Special Telecaster Electric Guitar that delivers a healthy combination of modern and traditional tones at a price that won't drain your wallet. But don't let the stripped-down price fool you into thinking it's a stripped-down guitar. It starts with an alder body, offering strength in construction and clarity in tone. The unique pickups on the Fender American Special Telecaster provide distinguishing sonic characteristics. The Texas Special single-coil Tele neck pickup delivers a full and meaty tone, the Texas Special Tele bridge pickup delivers that familiar Tele bite with a touch of warmth, and the Greasebucket tone circuit rolls off the highs without adding bass. The subtle 9-1/2" radius maple neck, maple fingerboard, and jumbo frets make this Fender guitar very finger-friendly. Other features include an original-style Tele bridge with three brass saddles, an oversized '70s-style decal, and black pickup covers, plastic parts, and dot position inlays.
