Most of 1988models only had the 3 knobs, which changed the classic look. This is not the reissue- this is the original from the 80s! The biggest complaint players were giving Gibson at the time was howuncomfortable the Les Pauls were to play. Gibson came up with 2 ways to solve the problem with their revolutionaryLite model.1 By featuring a thinner body they retained all of the features andsustain, but reduced the weight to only 7.8lbs. 2 They introduced a contoured back (similar to a Fender Strat) so theguitars back didnt dig into your ribs.
If your back isdreading those 60 minute gigs, you need this guitar. Current frets are in excellent condition as can be seen in the photos. Very fast string set up. This guitar is not in pristine cosmetic condition. It has its dings, nicks, and natural wear and tear from being a vintage instrument (see photos).
Some guys like the original road worn look. Some guys want it perfect. StewMac or Allparts has everything you need if you wanted to make it primo for cheap. NashvillePlant, TN, USA on September 8th, 1988 Production Number: 33.
The guitar includes the paperwork autographed by the Quality Inspectorand Final Checklist Packer, and case. Hopethis guitar brings you as much joy as it did for me.
