Body: Maple cap with mahogany body

Neck: Mahogany neck with a “C” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, ebony fretboard, 12” radius, and block inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Original tuners, ’57 Classic and ’57 Classic Plus humbuckers (rated at 7.7 kOhms in the neck and 8.7 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, two volumes and a master tone control, Moog controls not functional

Cosmetic Condition: The top has some dings, scratches, and finish cracks but is holding up well. The sides have some edge wear and chipping around the strap button and the back has a large dose of buckle rash down to the wood. The neck has some spots of finish wear and the headstock is looking good with minimal wear. This Les Paul is good to go!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The Moog electronics have been partially removed and as such, don’t function. The rod cover and knobs have been replaced and a Kahler has been installed. The trem arm is missing and the electronics have been rewired to have two volumes and one master tone.
