This is a super cool triple-pickup Gibson Les Paul Artisan! This model is distinguished by 3 pickups and the flower inlay design on the fretboard and headstock. Based on a combination of the serial, and model-year specs, I've dated this one to around 1977.
This guitar does show some signs of cosmetic wear from over the years. The Walnut finish has significantly faded and there's various scratches and dents throughout the body. There's also plenty of chips in the binding around the neck and body and the finish on the back of the body also shows significant wear. The back of the neck and headstock show some additional dents and scratches and the hardware and pickups show some oxidation from over time as well. The frets are used but still play great and the electronics work as they should.
The switch tip and bridge appear to have been replaced, otherwise this guitar appears to be original.
Includes the pictured hard case, the foam on the handle is worn a flaking off.
