This is a 1980's Epiphone Les Paul with the Open Book headstock and Gibson branded truss rod cover. For its age, this guitar is in really nice shape. It is a glossy black guitar, so there's the usual light pick swirls etc all over the guitar, but no major dings, scrapes, etc. The gold hardware does have some patina on it. It is missing the switch tip cover. All of the electronics are original to the best of our knowledge. Comes with a Gibson branded hard case.
