Inspired by the legendary 1954 Les Paul "Black Beauty", this 2000 reissue captures all the best elements of the original. Much like the more recent 1957 reissue, "It features a body carved out of a single large piece of solid mahogany...the resulting dark mid-range tone from the body pairs perfectly with its bright-sounding solid ebony fingerboard."  Two sets of P90 pickups, plus a staple P90 for the neck pickup, along with the Bigsby tailpiece and tremolo arm, give the player loads of control and tone options. This pre-owned model has certainly been put through its paces by a gigging musician, but aside from some cosmetic wear, remains in good condition.
