This is my beautiful 2001 Gibson Les Paul Custom in Wine Red. The guitar is stunning and weighs in at around 9lbs 12oz for that legendary Gibson tone. Electronics are all original and quiet. The guitar has been refretted by the "Leicestershire Luthier" Nigel Roberts, using Gold Evo fretwire. I hated the original binding nibs, where the binding ran right up to the ends of the frets, leaving a gap for the strings to fall into while playing. Nigel agreed, and removed all the nibs, fretting right over the neck edge-binding and rounding each fret-end perfectly. This is one of the the most playable Les Pauls you'll ever find. Nigel then set the guitar up, so the action is excellent. The guitar is fitted with Schaller strap locks (the original buttons are in the case) and comes complete with its original Gibson USA plush case, as you would expect.
It's in amazing condition for a 2001 guitar but there are some minor blemishes - the gold pickup covers have faded a bit, as have the bridge and stop-bar/tailpiece where your hands rest on them.
From a dealer this would be a £2,300 to £2,500 guitar (you have to pay VAT to a shop). Get yourself a beautiful bargain for £1,800.
I will NOT post this instrument. You must come and collect it from me in Derbyshire. I have a great little valve amp (Hughes and Kettner) so you can hear it as the makers intended.
