You don't come across these all too often, and particularly ones that are mostly original or have had their pickups changed. This is a 1980 Les Paul Deluxe finished in Tobacco Sunburst and it has been fairly common practise over the years to change the Mini Humbuckers to full size ones, but this particular example has not been tampered with electronically. 

As with the vast majority of Gibsons of this age that has seen play during its lifetime, there are condition notes to be aware of. These include: 

  • The main point to be aware of is that there are some changes: i) It has had a refret at some stage to medium jumbo frets. This has been done very well and the guitar plays nicely as a result. ii) The bridge has been changed to a tuneomatic, but the original is in the case and iii) Some strap locks have been fitted
  • There is a minor crack on the pickguard near one of the screws
  • Usual bucklerash applies on the back, as well as a number of small indentations
  • Some tarnishing is present on the hardware, but is not extensive
  • There is a small ding on the back of the neck.

We have to say, there is some excellent figuring on the fingerboard and some light flaming on the neck on the neck which is quite three-dimensional. 

The guitar comes with its original Gibson 'Chainsaw' Hard Case. 

Gibson Guitars are known throughout the world for their high end guitars of which the most famous would be the ‘Les Paul’. Gibson guitars get better with age and it is these vintage and second hand guitars that we have here at Toneworld. These mature Gibson guitars are of excellent quality, great sounding and have much more playing life to offer.

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
