Guitar is in overall perfect working and playing condition. Has some checking on the top and a few dings and dents associated with its age.  The Overall condition is rated Very Good.

This Les Paul is something truly unique and special. Built in 1982, this guitar was purchased the same year by its original owner and only. It features 3 humbuckers, a 5 way pickup selector, flame maple top, and the original tremolo system (currently not installed). The pickup configuration is as follows:
Position 1: Neck
Position 2: Neck + Bridge
Position 3: Bridge
Position 4: Middle + Bridge
Position 5: Neck + Middle + Bridge
It has a slim, fast playing neck that'll keep you coming back for more. This guitar screams.

This Les Paul was purchased in 1982 at the Sam Ash on 48th street in New York City. The guitar was allegedly a prototype for a 3 pickup limited run of Sam Ash exclusive Les Paul's that never came to fruition.

Original gold knobs and tremolo system included in case.
