RARE 1978 Gibson Les Paul Standard with FACTORY Natural Finish! Absolutely stunning condition for a 43 year old guitar! This is the first year for the modern serial number format we have today and has the "Made In USA" stamped under the serial number. All pots are original CTS dated 1978 with complete ash tray cover present and simply removed temporarily so I could photograph the original CTS pots. Original frets in great shape with fret nibs and binding intact. Original bridge and mounting studs come in the case and were replaced with a fresh new one. This guitar is a tone monster with the solid mahogany body, rare natural maple top and a beautiful maple neck. Without a doubt the best of its kind available for sale anywhere in the world!
