Begrudging sale but honestly this money could be better used towards house savings…
 2009 Les Paul Studio in generally excellent condition, one small imperfection above the nut and one tiny dent in the body, white paint has faded pretty uniformly and looks amazing. Gold hardware is in great nick. 

Comes with real Ebony fretboard and 50s neck, plays great and sounds absolutely fantastic clean or dirty, it’s hugely resonant and smooth sounding - it’s essentially a Les Paul Custom without the fancy trimmings and the giant price tag. Decent weight, not hugely heavy but certainly not lightweight either. No neck breaks in the past. 

Tuners and nut have been replaced with Grovers and Tusq, pickups and awful circuit board electrics have been replaced with 50s wiring, Bourns pots and Iron Gear Blues Engine and Dirty Torque humbuckers with a push-pull on the bridge tone for huge live versatility and pseudo-Tele tones. Tuning stability and tone are bang on and it’s absolutely gig ready. 

Comes with Epiphone hard case which has always been great for gigs, essentially a rebadged Gibson one worth £70 on its own.

Price is £950 ONO.

I would, for obvious reasons, MUCH prefer collection from just outside Caerphilly, but I can post if absolutely necessary. No swaps thank you!

    Frets are flawless and I’d say around 8-9lb!

    I can certainly stick it on the bathroom scales in the morning! It’s nothing like as heavy as my Custom if that helps for now haha. I’ll get it weighed ASAP!

    I like them heavy too (can’t stand light Les Pauls) and it feels great to me so I’m assuming it’s more like 9lb. The scales will confirm!

    @mark123 9.9lb or 4.5kg according to the scales…my anchor of an LP Custom has clearly thrown off my perception of guitar weight haha
