Here's a Used 2003 Gibson Les Paul Special in well-loved, player cosmetic condition. I tend to assume guitars that look like they've been played are like that for a reason - and this one is no exception. It sounds and plays phenomenal. To the point that it has become my go-to shop guitar for testing pedals, equipment, etc. The biggest cosmetic flaws are extensive buckle rash on the back, and wood-putty-filled holes where the pickguard was installed. The satin finish shows plenty of ware in other places as well, but that is the most noticeable. It's also missing a few tuner screws, but I'll track those down before shipping. No breaks or repairs. Get this guitar. Play the heck out of it. Refinish it. Whatev. You'll be glad you did. Ships in a hardshell LP shaped case.
