    Description

    Snowy White's Gibson Les Paul Standard Gold Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 7 2916. Snowy White bought this Guitar in 1969 from the original owner in Sweden. Actually, he traded a 50's Stratocaster and 120 English pounds for it. Tuners were replaced with Grovers in 1970. In 1972 Peter Green gave him a wire ABR-1 bridge and that was installed so he wouldn't lose the saddles if a string broke. The Jack plate was replaced with a metal one around 1978. Around that same time he had a phase switch installed on the pickup switch cover. Has since been removed and switch appears to be original. But there is a square hole and 2 screw holes on cover for toggle switch cover.
    There is tape on the inside of cover with marks from Roger Waters' crew when strings were changed. Push/pull pot was on the bridge tone pot in the late 70's with Yamaha part. Ground plate was installed and pots were replaced by Chandler Guitars in the early 1980's. Copper shield tape has been installed on back of control plate cover. Headstock was broken in 1990 from guitar stand fall and repaired by Chandler Guitars in Richmond.
    Headstock was broken in Holland on a Roger Waters tour in the mid 2000's and re-repaired by Chandler as well. Pickup covers have been removed and have been reinstalled. Guitar has been refretted several times and plays wonderfully. Considerable checking on the incredibly iconic instrument. Original hard case included. Condition: Good.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
