Well what do we have here!

This is a one-off Les Paul. Its a 1984 Les Paul Studio Standard, complete with Tim Shaw Pickups and fitted with Trapezoid inlays. Its the inlays that makes it unusual, as Studio Standards had dot inlays, We think that these were either installed as a limited run by Gibson, or a previous owner has installed them in preference to dots, either way they are professionally installed, so its hard to tell! We have contracted Gibson & they also are unsure!

However, this guitar has a brilliant feel & mojo, with a lovely slim, almost Ibanez feel to the neck & a slightly thinner body than a Les Paul Standard, which is particular to the Studio Standards. hence the weight is reflected at a comfortable 8lb~11oz

Made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA
on March 12th, 1984
Production Number: 3

She has some signs of age, sporting a few dinks & buckle rash, as this baby has been played over the past 33 years, but there are no breaks or damage anywhere & her neck is fantastically straight, with literally no fret wear.

She comes with a generic (None original) hard case, which is in good order.
