For sale is my much loved but sadly now little used 1989 series Epiphone by Gibson Les Paul in Cherry Sunburst. The Epiphone serial checker says this was produced in 1989 at the Samick factory in Korea. These are the Les Paul models that were very similar to the ones Gibson were making in USA and feature the unique'Open Book' headstock and a set neck like the Gibsons. I bought this guitar new in 1990/91 and have owned and loved this guitar since. I was in a couple of bands in my teens, so it does have some bumps and scrapes as you would expect for a 30+ year old guitar, these are mostly around the bottom edge and on the back, but it has no significant damage, as you can see from the photos - I have added some more detailed photos of the main dings but please ask if you have any questions about the condition.
I recently took possession of its big brother from Gibson and so now, sadly, I do not play this guitar very much. All hardware and pickups are original, but I replaced the wiring harness (with orange drop capacitors and better treble bleed), new pots, 3 way switch and cracked jack plate earlier this year. In my opinion, this has definitely improved the sound (even with the original pickups) adding a good deal of clarity and tone.For the last 10 years or so I have stored this guitar in the Thomann hard case (included in the sale). The case is in very good shape, all latches function well and there is no damage to affect the integrity of the case, but it does have some marks (I think it is where it was leant against a recently painted wall).
This Epiphone LP sounds and plays great, especially with the new wiring. It has a really fast neck and no choking frets along the whole neck. As you can see in the photos, this guitar features a lovely Cherry Sunburst with a nice Orange base. The flamed wood is really gorgeous and it has always drawn admiring comments even from non-guitarists.As I said, this is a reluctant sale, it has been my companion for 3 decades, but is just not played as much as it should be and I really don't have room to keep multiple guitars hanging around. Please message me if you have any questions about this guitar or its condition or need more detailed photos of anything.
