This is a 2009 Studio. Has a Satin Black finish, a tune-o-matic bridge, a black pickguard, black knobs, factory stock Gibson neck humbucker and an added Gibson '57 bridge humbucker. It plays, sounds and feels great. Weighs in around 8.6lbs. Sale includes a Gibson gig bag.

This guitar has a few small marks and natural wear, but nothing major. Please see pics for cosmetic condition. The finish on these “faded” series Studios are super thin and normal use causes a nice “road worn” look! This Studio has a full thickness mahogany body, carved top (no maple top) and neck. Rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays. It currently has a set of flat wound strings installed. Plays and sounds amazing! No breaks or repairs. I did replace the truss rod cover with another original Gibson cover that was not damaged. I will include the one in the pics with the sale.

Feel free to ask any questions. Thank you for looking

$950 + $75 shipping

I played in a Southern Rock band out of Columbus Georgia in the mid-70’s. We played a LOT of Allman Brothers Band, Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels Band, plus some Clapton, Santana, Zepplin, and so on.
I only mention it cause I know you like the ABB, and we played 20+ ABB songs. Back then, they were my hands down favorite.

@Rick McC. plays the guitar I think?
Who didn’t grow up listening to their various multiple favorite artists playing a Les Paul? Nice guitar man. Wish I knew how to play. Are you good at it?
I played Les Pauls for many years (35) until I discovered Paul Reed Smith guitars (23 years ago). Better tone, playability in the upper registers, aesthetics, and they weighed a LOT less! I still have an Artist Series Clapton Strat, and a Taylor 314ce, that I play as needed.

No. I know way moré about guitars than I know how to play them. I need to get one on one lessons but, Covid got in the way.

I can agree with Rick on the PRS guitars. Even their “student” (SE) line can give any Les Paul a run for their money.

Very nice...I had a Sunburst reproduction some years ago. Was almost undetectable as a reproduction and had excellent sound. Always wanted a real Les Paul, but arthritis has taken my ability to play the guitar so I will never own one.

I had two different cherry sunburst Les Paul Deluxes back then; a !974, and another shortly thereafer, though I didn’t know it’s pedigree.

The first one literally fell forward off a very low guitar stand onto the carpeted stage. The neck cracked, right at the bottom of the headstock. Lucikly; the club owner had an old Les Paul standard, which he let me use for the entire night.

I’m not sure about the spelling in the following, as that was many years ago. Anyway, I took the guitar to J. Rayne Music in Atlanta, and dropped it off. They were an authorized repair center for many different makes of guitars, as well as making their own line of full custom guitars; and they were very well known in the music industry.

They fixed my guitar over the space of a long lunch, which even included a French polish refinishing of the damaged area. When I picked it up, the guy at the counter told me to keep the receipt of their repair work in the case with the guitar.
That was the best info I ever got for free! I traded in that guitar a bit later on a Gibson L6S. When the store owner saw the remnants of the crack on the back of the neck; he was quite concerned. When I showed him the receipt for the repair, and where it had been done; he gave me full value for that guitar on the trade-in.
As my Daddy used to say; “son, sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.”

Now the second one came to me in a round-about way.
A friend and her husband came to see us when I was playing the L6S at a club in Shiloh G#orgia, and he brought along his guitar for me to play, so he could hear what “it was supposed to sound like.” He went crazy over the L6S, and I really liked the way his Deluxe sounded and played. So, when I got back to Columbus about 4:AM; I went to his house, and beat on the door. He evenrually got up, came to the door, amd was wondering “what’s up?” I told him that I’d trade him even for the Deluxe, and he was good-to-go!

I played that guitar until I got back to Florida, where I traded it for an early Gibson Firebird, and that was the second to last Les Paul that I ever had. The rest may come out one day in the future; older brain cells willing…

Damn….$200? Wheh… You don’t want to know what that would go for these days.

In 1976 the “pancake” body was discontinued in lieu of a solid body, but you could find them up to 1979.

I would love to own a Les Paul from the Norlin era, although a lot of people do not think this is a good era for Gibson.

If repaired properly, a neck repaired Gibson will be stronger than a non repaired neck. At least that’s what I have read.

I had a limited edition Les Paul ‘82 Standard (a remake of the 1952 Standard) I bought for $800.00 in 1982. It had a Flame-Maple top, and the lowest action that I ever had on a Paul. The Bellamy Brothers head roady filed the frets on it twice for me back in my country music days.
I sold that guitar 20 years later, after playing the hell out of it six nights a week for many years for $2200.00 to a guitar collector from Orlando (he couldn't play a lick), and it was a working man’s guitar. It showed it’s age, but still sounded good.
