Solid mahogany body with highly flamed two-piece, book-matched carved maple top. Three-piece flamed maple neck with two walnut strips, a nut width of 1 11/16 inches and a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches. The neck has a very fast medium profile with a volute at the top. Bound ebony fretboard with original brass nut, 22 original jumbo frets and inlaid pearl split-block position markers and abalone side dot inlays.

The body of the guitar has seven-ply binding on top and five-ply binding on bottom, the headstock has five-ply binding, and the neck is single-bound. Two Gibson Series Vll humbucker pickups with black plastic surrounds. Five-layer black over white plastic pickguard. Four controls (two volume, two tone) and two-way coil tapping switch on lower treble bout plus three-way pickup selector switch on upper bass bout. Black plastic barrel-shaped ‘speed’ knobs. Nashville-style ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and separate TP-6 fine tuning stud tailpiece. All hardware gold-plated. The 25/50 model was issued to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Les Paul model (a year late, since 1977 was actually the 25th year), and the 50th anniversary of Les Paul’s career in the music business. This Iconic Axe is in Excellent Shape, Especially considering its age! There are, however, a couple super light finish marks near the knobs and some light buckle wear on the back, easy 9.5/10!
