Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: This is the Gibson Gothic Les Paul that I got from Lee (for those who know, bow your head in a moment of remembrance) going on 2 years ago shortly. Mahogany body, ebony board with a single moon/star inlay at the twelfth fret, Grover tuners etc... you all know about Les Pauls, so I won't bore you with details. It's a beast of a guitar and this is still a feeler since I feel iffy even trying to part with it, but after spending some time with it last night after it's restring; me and the Les Paul curvature don't go together like a horse and carriage anymore I've been playing my Strat a lot lately and really like the arm contour/flat tops like SG's and Tele's. (I haven't played a Tele in a while but the ones I remember playing were nice.) Truth be told, she's been in my room as I've been afraid to play it as it's so nice as was the gesture, so I don't want to ding it and that' not fair to it. If I do trade it, I want it to be to someone who'll give it the play time and adoration it's worthy of. Modifications (if any): Absolutely zero. Just restrung it with D'Addario Light Top/Heavy Bottoms (10-13-17-30-42-52) and took off the pickguard for purely aesthetic reasons. I changed the knobs from the Skull Head ones Lee had one there (as he told me, his son called it the "Mr. Scary" guitar [No relation to the George Lynch one]) to regular Speed knobs and one of the pots broke so one doesn't stay on. The strap pin by the neck also came out so that will need to be filled and put back in, or drill a new hole. Both of these are minor flaws. Accessories (hardshell case etc): SKB Hardshell fitted case and Skull-head knobs Location (City,State or City,Country): MA/NH border Contact Info (No Phone #s) PM References Required (eBay or other forum userid): 6 deals done on here (technically sold to 7 members but one was done on MG), as well as 7 or 8 sales on eBay and even more done on Goozex Price (include currency and if firm/obo): I am ONLY interested in TRADING this for now, and to be perfectly frank, I'd love to trade it to someone who ISN'T a gear whore despite them having the other guitar I want/someone who'll have it for a long time and when they go back and play it, every time it's got that "Damn, I do love this guitar" feel. It's more about a good home for this guitar as that's what it deserves, and it'd kill me to see it back up here in an instant. As for trades, the only things I'm really interested would be SG's (preferably brown if you've got a Faded Series, otherwise send pics) and Strats (maple board is my Achilles' heel). Pictures: Remember folks, this still a HUGE feeler thread to test the waters, as I said, I'm still iffy about even trading it.
