2009 Les Paul Studio Raw Power | Satin Blue/Platinum Burst w/ Hardshell Case
Here's a super nice and fantastic playing 2009 Gibson Les Paul Studio Raw Power finished with nitrocellulose in a clean Satin Blue/Platinum burst. This is not your typical Les Paul by any standard. A carved maple top on a chambered maple body with a solid maple neck and MAPLE FRETBOARD! It's kinda crazy.
Gibson's '57 Classic Humbucker Set (AlNiCo II) is a perfect match allowing the all maple body to maintain its bite and clarity without being shrill and unpleasant. All the electronics function properly without any scratching or static from the pots or switch.
The frets are virtually wear free, the intonation is spot on, and the action is low - no buzzing or fretting out when bending. The neck is straight and truss rod functions properly.
The body has a few minor wear blemishes including, light playing wear on the maple fretboard and a few minor wear marks around the bottom edges that are very common with Gibson's think nitro satin finishes. There is also a similar wear mark were the strap has rubbed. No dents or dings to speak of. None of the previously mentioned items limit the playability or detract from the overall fantastic looks.
All in all an extremely nice guitar in great condition, complete with installed Dunlop Strap Locks (originals also included) and the RoadRunner hardshell case.
