Price : US $350.35
Your are viewing a like new Epiphone Les Paul standard. It is black and chrome and looks and plays like new, but sounds better. It comes with a very nice Gibson gig bag. I hope you can see in the pics that there are no blemishes, but please nit it is marked 2nd. I wouldn't have known, except I tried to look up the serial number and it returned not valid. Then I saw a barely legible stamp.
I upgraded the Cap (capacitors) from the little chip to a Vitamin Q style .018 on the treble to make it cream and .027 on Rhythm to make it growl. These are top quailit oil and paper type. I have sold 15 or so Epi's and this is the combo people have liked the best.caps. Upgrading the caps opened up the sound and gives what is typically called 'the traditional buttery Les Paul sound'. This may seem like a small change, but definitely a step up in sound quality. Contrary to what some sources say, the cap changes the sound even when the tone control is not in use. I tried A/B testing with one end soldered and the other just held in place and the cap does give a warmer sound with more depth. This is a major bang for the buck upgrade.
I will upgrade the pickups to genuine Gibson parts and offer them on any guitar, this one included for $150 for your choice of 490r/490t, 490r/498t ot 496r/500t and $160 for '57 Classics and BurstBucker Pro's.. This particular guitar sounds really good, but if you want just let me know when you buy it and I will install the pickups.
