$2350.00 and this beautiful baby can be yours!!!

2016 Iced tea burst excellent shape AAA finish, plecked, locking tuners and Burstbucker Pro humbuckers are paired with the classic three-way switch and separate Volume/Tone control, but each knob has a secondary push/pull function to increase the range of sounds available. The Volume controls pull up to split the humbuckers for highly convincing single tones, whereas the Lead Tone control enables a pull out ‘Pure-Bypass’ mode, hard wiring the bridge pickup to the output jack, bypassing the other electronics and the Rhythm tone control acts as a Phase switch in its pulled up position. The variety of tones on offer is excellent for a simple two pickup guitar, giving the 2016 Les Paul a much wider tonal palette than one might assume.

Where the 2016 models really excel is in terms of playability and comfort. The modern weight relief gives the guitar a much more balanced feel that is well worth sacrificing some sustain over for those with even the slightest of back or neck issues. This is still a moderately heavy guitar but nothing like as dense as a fully solid Les Paul. The compound radius and asymmetrical slim taper neck design are lovely to play for both lead and rhythm work across the guitar’s range and the excellent fret work means that fast lead work is a breeze.

Tones are fantastic across the board though, with a clarity from the Burstbuckers that wasn’t expected at all. Clean tones are very detailed and responsive and overdriven tones sing with plenty of sustain or get aggressive and tight on higher gain settings. As mentioned earlier this is a very versatile guitar and covers a lot of bases . Where the 2016 models really excel is in terms of playability and comfort.

Comes with case shown and all factory paperwork included. Not a scratch or mark on this beauty she stays in her case and hardly ever is played by me as I’m no accomplished guitar player!!! Young adult of mine still in college so these guitars I sell are from my own collection of guitars that was 18 now down to 16. This will also be funding the college education!!!!

Thanks for looking……😀
