    2012 Black Beauty with uncovered pickups including OHSC with brass Custom Shop plaque and certificate of authenticity from Gibson. I am the original owner. DOB of the guitar is May 2012.

    The neck appears to be the 50s Rounded as it is 0.818" (measured with digital calipers) at the nut. So it is a little thinner than the R7, R8 and R9, but deeper than the 60s Slim Taper.

    The guitar is in almost as new shape, except for a few typical gloss black finish very fine lines - it has very little play time, only used for a few songs in a studio setting. No buckle rash, dings or other blemishes on the guitar.

    Specs:
    Carved Maple Top
    Weight-relieved Mahogany Back
    Multi-ply White/Black Binding on Top and Back
    22-fret Richlite Fingerboard
    Rounded Neck Profile
    Pearl Block Inlays
    Single-ply Neck Binding
    Metal Tulip Tuners
    490R/498T Humbucker Pickups
    Nashville TOM/Stopbar Tailpiece
    2 volume, 2 tone, 3-way switch
    Hardware: Chrome
    OHSC: Brown with Burgundy Lining (*Disclosure, there is a ~1 cm slice on the edge of the case lid near the handle.)

    $2,500.00 plus Shipping
    Shipped in the ConUS via FedEx Ground/Home Insured. PayPal Accepted.

    Weight, as determined by a postage scale, is 9.876 lb - definitely a 'light-weight' for a mahogany backed LP.

    Truly, but it still sounds like a solid chunk of mahogany.
