Weight: 10.4lb

Finish: Original Wine Red

Body Material: Mahogany, maple

Body Details: 2-piece mahogany body,  a good amount of buckle rash and scuffing in the finish, the middle back of the body has the most amount of wear and rash to the finish. 3-piece maple top, just like what Slash had in 1987, looks great. There is some checking and a little bit of play wear around the volume knobs; however, the top is far cleaner than the back of the guitar.

Neck Details: Mahogany neck with bound rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays, the classic Les Paul Standard neck. There are a couple of small dents in the finish of the neck, but none of them change the feel or playable characteristic of the guitar. The finish still has plenty of gloss to it and has a bit of splitting where it touches the neck binding between the 3rd and 12th frets .

High E string gauge: 10
