When I was 12 years old (11 years ago), I wanted one of these so badly; but $300 was a lot of money to kid who couldn't work.

Last night I saw this beauty for sale on Craigslist for a really sweet deal. I impulsively purchased it from the seller, and now I am a happy camper.




The stock strap buttons were replaced with genuine vintage 1980's Gibson USA strap pins (aesthetic reasons, plus I had them laying around)


The original P100 Dogear pickup was replaced with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90. It sounds killer. The electronics were also all upgraded to Gibson USA components.




The original tuners were replaced with Gibson made in USA Deluxe tuners.

I'm planning on replacing the stock bridge, knobs, and also installing pointers.

I had one of these in TV Yellow. Was a Great guitar after I replaced the P100 that was in it. Played and sounded better then the Gibson Les Paul I had at the time.
