The "desert burst" finish really stands out on this model.  I don't see many out there in this color, which is interesting because it is one of the better options on this model as far as I'm concerned.

At 8.5 pounds, the guitar feels surprisingly light for a les paul.  I'm not sure, but I assume it is weight relieved.

There are two small changes to note - the original pickups were removed, then reinstalled, and I'm pretty sure the knobs were changed.  There is a little wear from a guitar stand or hanger up at the edges of the headstock.  Other than that, the guitar is in excellent condition.  The original pickguard isn't currently installed but it is included in the original case.

The guitar has been restrung and received a quick setup.  It plays really well!
