2005 Gibson LP Std Faded, Larry Corsa LCPG-346 Conversion


The photos will tell the story the best.  This guitar is in great shape, with only a very few minor surface scratches. A 15 year old Standard Faded that is in better condition than 99% of the new guitars on showroom floors. The color, flame and grain in the top make for total eye candy. The average weight of ’05s is mid 9 pounds, with some over 10 pounds – this guitar is an even 9 pounds (4.08 Kg.) after conversion.  This Faded checks off all the boxes. It’s clean, has super flame, and sounds incredible. With a brand new TKL Hardshell Les Paul case. Tone, as with all Fadeds, is exceptional. “Peter Green Mod” out of phase tone via a push-pull pot on the bridge tone. Sustain for days! Satin Finish “solid,” NON CHAMBERED body with maple top – Neck shape: ’50s neck profile – 24.75″ scale mahogany set neck with 22-frets – 12″-radius rosewood fingerboard.
