This poor Les Paul Deluxe suffered the rigors of the arid New Mexico climate. The maple cap was split and pulling away form the mahogany body in several places. The owner opted to replace the mini humbuckers with vintage P-90’s and have it refinished a Gold Top.

The frets were in need of being replaced and the binding nibs had already been removed so I took the opportunity to flatten the fretboard before replacing the frets.
