Stunning vintage non-chambered Yamano Ordered Gibson Les Paul Classic Honeyburst from 1997. The 90’s classics have become increasingly renowned guitars and this is testament to that; it looks and plays fantastic with plenty of old mojo going on... It’s a superb looking dark aged honeyburst now with maple graining all over. It’s true what they say about the 90’s classics, they are amazing looking guitars. It has absolutely no breaks or repairs. Being a 90's Classic it has a thin 60’s neck, ink stamped '7' serial number, "1960" inscribed cream pickguard, "Classic" TRC and double black 490R/498T humbuckers.  Lots of life in the frets, neck dad straight and truss rod fine.  No problems structurally or electrically. Weight is a very comfortable 4.3kg (Non-chambered remember…). The honeyburst finish has darkened over the decades, as have white plastics, the binding has aged to a deep yellow and the metal hardware has taken on a tarnished grey patina. It’s got all the good ageing with none of the bad stuff and is well along the road to being a real vintage stunner. No green inlays on this old beauty! It’s almost a quarter of a century old now so there is obviously some playwear, just the regular little bumps, scratches and and scuffs you’d expect to see on a 90s Les Paul. Why anyone would choose a sterile new Les Paul over a beautiful old worn in Classic like this I will never understand. Complete with Japanese Yamano paperwork and original 1990’s Tan Gibson HSC with pink lining and shroud. All latches fine and combi-lock is working with no problems. A very special 60's Gibson Les Paul honeyburst Classic from the great Classic years.
