One of the best deals out there in a quality, utility guitar - the Les Paul Studio.  

This is a nicely kept, clean example with a great neck and frets with light wear.

It is clear that the guitar wasn't played a ton, though there are a couple small changes.  There are a set of Dunlop straplock buttons in place of the originals and the other parts of the straplocks are included.  The bridge was changed out for a chrome one with gold saddles.  Lastly, it appears that one of the original pickups has been removed and reinstalled, judging by the solder joint.

The neck is straight and there is room for adjustment in the truss rod.  There are no structural issues or repairs.  An Epiphone hardshell case is included.
