As it says LS-120, very good price!

Exceptionally good price - early 120s seem to be creeping up to the $2000 mark...

I don't think it sold. I also don't think I've ever seen an LS-120 for under $2000. It's not a very attractive guitar, unfortunately.

The cherry/clownburst versions are probably the least desirable to most Les Paul lovers.

It's just not a very good cherryburst, though there are some nice CS finishes out there. And the flame and tuners are kind of unkind to the overall look

Actually, I think the flames kind of enhance it a bit

The seller says the top is veneer if that matters to you at all.

If you're looking for a 120, it's best to just assume it's a veneer. There are a very few solid tops and on a lot of them it's almost impossible to tell for sure. It doesn't make a big difference to me, the veneers can look very good and very much like a vintage Gibson.

If you want to take a step up from the LS-80 to a more rare and higher spec guitar, the 120 is the way to go. Finding an LS-200 is next to impossible and most of the LS-100 I have seen are plaintops with DiMarzios. So the LS-120 is about as good as it gets for us mortals.

Oh I forgot to mention they sound amazing Burstalicious.
