These early 2000s Epiphone Les Pauls were the peak of imported Epiphone quality. We have had our hands on a ton of them and they are all nicer guitars than we typically see from this brand during other time periods. This one has a gorgeous tobacco burst finish that has really deep brown and purple tones to it, and it really pops in direct light. This color wasn't offered for long and seems to rarely pop up for sale.
This one is 100% original and unmodified. No signs of abuse, just light playwear. For its age, the amount of wear is definitely on the minimal side of the spectrum. There is one larger ding in the middle of the back, but it isn't even deep enough to be through the finish and into the wood. Not bad!
The neck is straight, fretwear is minimal, and it plays great thanks to a recent full setup and restring. This one is ready to rock!
