Hi, all. As the very last resort after liquidating most of my studio I have come to actually selling my instruments. Check them out. I am not letting them go for cheap, but I have invested lots of love in them. They are customized, etc. This Les Paul Custom has the genuine "PAF" Gibson pickups - the Classic '57 and the Classic '57 Plus (these are the ones that should come stock on the Gibson LP Custom and these are the ones that make the Epi sound the same as the $2600+ guitar!, they're worth $100 each) Plus it has Sperzel locking tuners (didn't go out of tune for over a year of being stored in case) and Schaller strap Locks and a strap (never drop your guitar!) Epiphone hardshell case included, too. More info here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=903931969 Thanks for your support! P.S. Please don't reply to this post here, but contact me through ebay or just by e-mail. Thanks!
