A quite new-looking Epiphone Les Paul despite being 17 years old. There's light surface scuffs to the finish, mostly on the back, and some light fret wear. There's a stamp that reads "2ND" at the top of the back of the headstock, above the serial number, hard to see in our photo #11 but it's there. We're not sure why, however, and since the neck is straight and all the joints are solid we assume it was a cosmetic issue that prompted the 2ND stamp, such as the fact that the center seam of the top is slightly off center. Nice original hardshell case.
