2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard Root Beer Flame Top!

Hi there!

Today we are looking at a lovely 2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard finished in Root Beer (now discontinued) with a flame top. It is, of course, made in the USA, and it has a rosewood fretboard.

It is an awesome guitar, in near mint condition. It has never needed repair, or been repaired in any way.

There is only a few light scuffs that are impossible to photograph, and 2 small flea-bite dings on the front. I have pictured one, and the other I could not get to photograph. No rash or fretwear, and no issues. It has not been modified, so it has the original pickups and hardware. It sounds good too!

This is in better condition than any “new” guitar you pull off the wall at Guitar Center. They’ll let ANYONE touch them. Ewww.

This one is equipped with the 60’s neck profile, according to the fine folks at Gibson (and the little sticker I peeled off the headstock).

It weighs right around 8 pounds, 2 ounces. Obviously it has a chambered body.

The serial number is: 007180330, dating this to 2008. Note that this is the last of the Les Paul Standards with normal wiring and pots.

Included is the original black Gibson hardshell case with the faux reptile covering, and a pimped-out fuzzy white interior. It is in excellent shape too. It has the Gibson inspection card and truss rod wrench, as well as the pickguard, which has not been mounted to the guitar yet, so no extra holes have been drilled.

It plays incredibly. My tech set it up with Slinky 0.010s, and it needs nothing, except for you to play it!

The list price on these was $3448, and the lowest I ever saw these at a retailer was for $2299 at Musician’s Friend, so let’s get this thing into your capable hands! Shoot me an e-mail and we can talk it over.

Author edit: THis guitar has been sold. Thank you every body for your interest!
