Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...

A really cool 1981 Gibson Les Paul Standard in beautiful Wine Red with the much sought after original Tim Shaw Humbuckers from Gibson... It comes with the original Deluxe Hardshell Gibson Chainsaw Case. A beautiful example of Gibson's Norlin Era of fine guitar building...This one is awesome!

This guitar was purchased from a Pro Player here in Des Moines that took really good care of it...Only Player honest dings and scratches. The Pickups sound awesome and the action is nice and low...plenty of room to set it up with your preferences..

The only maladies I could find is some finish that is fading at the arm rest area and some damage from the guitar hanger at the headstock. See pics 12 and 13. The nitro finishes don't react well with plastics. Don't let plastic straps or stands come in contact with your vintage guitars! I opened up the back plate to see the original pots..see pic 5. I believe I was the first to ever open it up. The screws came out of the pot cover but it was so firmly on there, I left it alone. I think I can safely say the pots are original and has not been messed with. The original frets are still very nice. Love the Gibson branded tuner covers...see pic 9. The cool red wine finish is beautiful and very small insignificant scratches are all to report.

Pro setup with new 10's. The action is awesome and the guitar plays great...been Professionally used but has years of play left in it. You will love this Les Paul...Its a heavy weight...weighs 10 lbs 12 ozs but its worth it... love playing this guitar!

Check out the awesome Gibson Chainsaw case. Nicest one I have seen. The interior is still really nice. Latches work as they should. Only the Gibson sticker on the outside is missing. Great case for this great guitar!

Sold as-is no returns as its used .. However... I have been hand picking out my customers guitars for over 20 years and they all loved the guitars I found for them. This cool Les Paul will certainly not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars...
