And i never wanted to touch it simply because it sounds so good the way it is. The guitar has a lot of mojos and is very resonnant..
I refretted it with taller frets than original but similar to the original one and the job is perfect you just dont feel it on the edge of the neck like the original.... The plastic nut was replaced with a bone nut for better intonation and tuning (original plastic one is included in the guitar case). The ABR-1 on the guitar at the moment is an aged reissue with titanium saddle (but the original ABR-1 is also in the case). These changed were made only for better intonation and sound preference... Titanium saddles are great for sustain and clarity.The new owner can put back the original ABR-1 with its original saddle... The plastic nut and even the frets if originality is necessary... The neck size is perfect... Guitar ring and vibrated naturally when unpluged.
Both pickups are hot neck 8.00...... Guitar weights 9 pounds even. This is a very good les paul gold top and one of the best i had...The original case (5 latchs) is in very good condition. Guitar can be seen in person if you want or can be inspected by pro of your choice. From this city (there is a few).
