So I've wanted a Gibson Les Paul for a long time and have been waiting for a good deal to come along.
I found a Les Paul Studio 2010 Black Satin for $500 and I believe it has the James Hetfield EMG chrome pickup set installed.
Since the pickups are about $200 on their own and it includes a Gibson Hard shell case as well, I think the price is a great deal.
Thoughts before I buy it? I know the Studio is the "base model" Les Paul, but for my use, it sounds like a great deal.
Are you able to play it? If so go check it out. Otherwise understand you may have just bought some used EMGs and a case for $500. Studios can be really great guitars but there's a lot that are just firewood, also, I don't think 2010 was Gibsons best production year
