NOS 2000 Gibson Les Paul Smartwood Series, Banara top,mahogany back, curupay fretboard,dot inlays,thin 60's style neck,gold hardware,nut feels like slippery material-but not bone,pickups are 490R & 490T which sound hot to me.Comes with Gibson certified paperwork & heavy duty thick Gibson gig bag. for a nice writeup on these guitars,copy/paste this address to your browser http://www.gear-vault.com/tag/banara/
Top is carved not flat like cheaper models.
Bought as an investment piece in 2000,played only a couple times.This guitar plays very well w/low action, stays in tune,has no issues.The golden yellow color is stunning-pics dont do it justice, Weights between 7-8lbs. Sounds like....well.....a Les Paul but wont break your back !!.Surprisingly the exotic wood doesnt change the sound of what you would expect from a Les Paul.Gibson introduced these in 1998 as a committment to the Rainforest woods as part of the original proceeds went to the Rainforest Alliance. Only one surface mark on the back which was from the store,couldnt get it to come out in the pics.This is a NOS guitar and could be a great bargain compared to a 08 LP standard which will set you back over 2000 dollars.USA bids only,paypal only no exceptions.Less than 2 feedback,email me before bidding.Will be well packaged for safe shipment,shipping will be 35 dollars insured.
