She just celebrated her 17th birthday and has been very well cared for. There really are no dings to speak of, but there is a light nick where the neck joins the headstock, and if you turn the guitar under direct reflective light, you may find couple of tiny light surface impressions, as well as some more pronounced pick scratches on the top, above the bass strings. The pick-guard has been removed, and subsequently the screw-holes remain exposed… If this bothers you, the simple and obvious remedy is to just get a new pick-guard. The guitar really is exceptional, especially for being 17 years old. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are excellent, with their entire life ahead of them… and she sounds like a great Les Paul should! Also included is the original Gibson Historic case, and although the certificate is missing, it does include a few pieces of case candy, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
