1978 Gibson Les Paul Special '55 in Charlotte, SC for $799

The seller doesn't seem t realize that this is a Les Paul Special - or that the original "Soapbar" pickups that came in this were a better match than what he calls the "pricey EMG" pickups. But this could be brought back to it's original splendor - and you can put back some Lollar or Gibson P90's to make her right.

This is known as the "55" because it is a reissue of the classic 1955 Les Paul. The soap bar pickups have been switched out for the pricey ACTIVE EMG pickups. Also, strap locks have been added...otherwise, it's original. The action is low, it plays easy and fast, sounds great, looks great in any lighting. Check EBAY for a 1978 Les Paul and you'll see what a deal/steal this is at $799. ;) Just contact for more pics. & info

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
