2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded, LCPG-342 Conversion


This 2008 Les Paul Standard Faded has an exceptional Tobacco Sunburst finish, with a highly defined chevron in the flame top.  Shows only minor signs play wear.  Cosmetic issues are small scratches and dings that do not go through the finish.   Overall, I rate this guitar cosmetically as “Very Good.”  Frets have many years of life left.  Tone, as is usual with all Fadeds, is exceptional. Sustain for days!  Satin Finish chambered body with maple top – Neck shape: ’50s Rounded – 24.75″ scale mahogany set neck with 22-frets – 12″-radius rosewood fingerboard.  Nice and light weight – 7lbs – 2oz (3.23 Kg.) after conversion. Ships in a brand new TKL Hardshell Les Paul case.
