    Well its a les paul / I've never seen a standard in that color however.
    do your research prior to buying ,check around for similar guitars and compare ,Id say that as of the last bid its worth it,but
    I myself wouldnt go much higher .

        Not a standard (no binding on body and fretboard are a dead giveaway). Tuners and pus are replacements. Given that you have essentially a 90s studio with at least some mods (and how well done needs to be addressed) I think the current price is about as much as that warrants (perhaps more than it warrants...)

          I agree with Memphis Joe i don't think that is a standard..I don't see any binding that is normal on a Standard.It also has had Grovers put on it which to me is a plus but it doesn't appear to be a very neat job of it..I would research it heavily if i was you..I do believe it is a true Gibson but my question is what type..I'm not super knowledgeable about Les Pauls ..Hopefully someone will chime in that knows more..As for myself its a cool looking guitar but i would not pay over $800 for it...

            Looks nice though - like the black-on-blue hardware!

            If you can get it for 800 maybe, but don't go too far.

              Definitely looks like a Studio, not a Standard. Still seems to be a nice guitar though.

                I believe this is a Studio Lite. I had the same guitar (minus the EMGs) a few years ago.

                Good guitars. but it is not a standard.

                    Don't Studio Lite's have middle single coils?

                    EDIt: nope, apparently only some of them did. I love that color.

                      There's nothing wrong with them. They actually have a pretty good reputation. I played one back in college that belonged to a friend, and I remember it being a really nice guitar.

                          It might be a limited edition(Sam ash, mf, etc)...in any case, I couldn't see spending more than $700 on it, but if it's your thing....

                          The color and EMG's are pretty unique, imo

                            It' a Studio Lite and it's a standard color. The original pickups (500T/496R) have been swapped out as have the tuners. They usually run $700-$800 used (stock).

                              Definitely a Studio Lite. In 1996, I went to my local Sam Ash weekly and played one just like it. It's not worth more than the bidding (at $738 as of writing this), as others have said. The mods make it undesirable for me. The stock pickups would have been better for metal, unless you're really into EMGs. I also don't like the look of the tuners, whether or not they are stable. However, those were nice guitars, and you don't often see blue Les Pauls. To me, that's the most valuable feature.
