The new owner brought the subject '97 Gibson Les Paul Studio Gem was brought to my attention. Upon initial inspection, the neck had an excessive back bow with some fretting out in the upper registers. After adjusting the truss rod, a couple of frets were noted to be uneven thus resulting in fret buzz and fret outs. One of the neck pickup screws was also noted to be loose in the slot. Upon further inspection, the screw bushing has come off. The high frets were marked and screw bushing glued down.
The frets are lightly dressed and crowned.
The high E slot in the original nut was also worn and the owner requested for a new bone nut.
The frets are crowned and buffed. The new bone nut is also slotted and polished to a shine.
The finished guitar all ready to rock and roll.
