Tech Notes: This Les Paul plays well with medium action. There are some inconsistencies in the neck that prevent low action (this is very common for this model). This guitar would benefit from a refret if lower action is desired. Because the guitar is so clean we have elected not to modify it and to preserve the originality of this rare model.
