Vintage original Gibson Les Paul Standard in original Sunburst finish.

This is a rare Standard from 1973 when they were mainly making only Les Paul Deluxe guitars and only sent Standard as custom orders to dealers. The humbucker routes are original to the guitar and the truss rod is the original “Standard” truss rod cover.

Original dark Sunburst finish is nice and dark and unfaded and looks amazing.

This guitar features a Kahler tremolo system that works great and sounds amazing. One bolt on the locking nut is missing, the middle one, but the guitar plays great and stays in tune regardless. The Kahler trem works great and has a real nice feel and lots of sustain. Really brings ya back to the good old days.

The bridge pickup is a 1980s Gibson Bill Lawrence HBR pickup and the neck pickup is a Gibson Burstbucker Pro which was used in Gibson Custom Shop guitars in the aughts. Both pickups sound killer with classic warm and thick Gibson tone.

Pots are original dated 1973.

Guitar is clean with honest signs of wear and age.

Comes with a newer Gibson hardshell case.
