Gibson / Les Paul Standard / 1953 / Goldtop / Guitar
1953 Gibson Les Paul Standard. Not a single issue. Sounds like a grand piano. Yes, it includes the brown Lifton case. Yes, it’s under 9lb. Yes, it rocks.
100% original, all solder joints original. You all know trapeze LP’s are hard to play with the factory bridge. But some pure genius made a trapeze bar like the one it has now, requiring no extra drills, no irreversible changes, but plug-n-play… and voilá. You’ve got yourself a non-floating, stoptail-like playing Les Paul. The bar wasn’t cheap but it’s included, and so is the original one. You can palm mute, and play it exactly a normal stoptail LP. Brilliant!
The sound is amazing, btw. Very harmonic, very clear, easy to distinguish all strings, and very responsive to your playing. Setups beautifully with low action.
Condition is fantastic. A few dings here and there but no greening anywhere. Weights 3853gr, making it a quite lightweight LP! Nice full neck, but not a baseball bat at all.
Has a 3xx format serial number and one of the very first ones to ever include the poker chip.
Includes an original 4-latch brown Lifton case (Gibson logo) with lovely pink inteior in exceptional condition as well.

Guitar Giraffe, Spain
In the last few years, online sale for musical instruments has experienced an amazing growth, but has passed right through the pre-owned market (that is, in Spain), limiting it to specialised forums and private owners. This is why Guitar Giraffe was born, the first physical and online second hand guitar and amp store (we like to call it "pre-owned", since we see a big difference between both terms), with a clear commitment of giving new options to guitarists locally and worldwide. Pre-owned guitar stores, so common in UK and USA, were practically nonexistent in Spain. We’ve wanted to fill that empty space by becoming the first physical and online store in our country focused on pre-owned guitars and amps.
