    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: 2011 model. One ding on the back edge of the body, small scratch on side of body and a tiny bit of glue smudged around the top strap button area. Nothing major at all. I would think it would be trivial to fix those small things if they bothered you. Nice flamed maple top and a big '50s profile neck.
    Modifications (if any): One of the strap button screw-holes was stripped so I fixed it with a toothpick and some wood glue.
    Accessories (hardshell case etc): original hard case
    Location (City,State or City,Country): Sylvester, GA
    International OK? : No thanks.
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM
    References (eBay or other forum userid): My iTrader here.
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): Interested in trades only. Japanese or American made only please. ESP, Jackson, Music Man, Suhr, or other relatively modern guitars would be potentially interesting to me. Possibly modern hi-gain amplifier heads as well (Engl, Mesa, etc.) or one of those Fractal things the kids are raving about these days. No Ibanez or Peavey stuff please.

    Pictures of the blemishes I mentioned, really minor stuff in my opinion but I want you to be aware:

    I wish I had a good picture of the top. I'm not usually interested in figured tops personally, but the flamed maple top on this guitar really is pretty damn nice looking. I'm pretty sure this particular Les Paul has a one piece mahogany body as well, or at least I can't find the seam. People love to talk shit about Gibson, but I really can't find fault with this guitar and if I don't get a really tempting offer I'm more than happy to hang on to it.

    Really interested in two things. 1. Just about anything with Suhr written on the headstock. 2. Loaded JP7.

    Yeah, pretty much. They changed the standard a few years ago and now it has things like an asymmetrical neck carve and a chambered body. The traditional is a traditional les Paul standard.

    Still waiting for someone to offer me a JP7! I've had some really tempting offers though *cough*Bernie Rico Jr*cough*.

    Piezo/no piezo, shields/no shields.... Not too worried about the options. "player condition" probably wouldn't bother me either.
