A professional standard guitar in fantastic condition

The iconic and unmistakeable Epiphone Les Paul !

Built in 2002, serial number S020613196, Samick, Korea.
Guitars from this time and factory are
well known for their high quality and finish.
There is no way you would be able to mistake this
for the new lesser quality Chinese models.

This guitar is one from my personal collection and
has received the following upgrades!
Sad to see it go but, you just can't keep them all!
- Iron Gear Blues Engine neck pickup
- Iron Gear Dirty Torque bridge pickup
- Chrome Rollerbridge
- upgraded gold control knobs

All the upgrades were completed by Peter Wilson,
Guitar Technician at Steve James Guitars, Middlesbrough. The original pickups and bridge are included in the sale
if the new buyer wishes to
restore the guitar to the factory setup.

Also included is a leather look strap and
strap locks so you will be ready to play!

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 18/10/2014 with D'Addario 10 Strings
- String height set at 2.4mm at 17th fret, Bass side
- 2mm at 17th fret, Treble side
- Correct saddle height adjustment
- Correct neck relief adjustment
- all electrics checked
- all hardware including screws have been removed, cleaned, lightly oiled and reassembled
- Full body and neck cleaned and polished

Clean and ready to be played !

As a left handed player I know how
difficult it is to find the good quality guitars.
This guitar was purchased as a stock item from a professional musician to be offered
for general sale on our website.
However, once I had played the guitar myself,
I very quickly realised it had "that feel" and
decided I would add it to my personal collection.
This is not something that happens very often and I am
still questioning my decision to offer it up for sale now.
The guitar already sounded awesome and just
came alive with the upgraded pickups installed. 
It just sounds like a fantastic, professional level guitar.
The condition of this guitar is as good as
any other 12 year old guitar out there, if not better.
General playing wear to be expected.
I have enjoyed playing this guitar immensely and will be sad to see it go, but as they say, my loss is someone else's gain.
The new hardcase is included in the sale.

 You will not be disappointed with this guitar
