2005 Gibson LP Std Faded, Larry Corsa LCPG-347 Conversion


The photos will tell the story the best. This guitar is in great shape, with only a very few minor and difficult to see surface scratches. No edge or neck dings at all, with only a small, pen tip sized ding on the back near the control cavity. No back worming at all. That’s it! 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 the original Gibson TKL Hardshell Les Paul case, and ALL ORIGINAL CASE CANDY, including strap. 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.
