Gibson 1998 Les Paul Standard Honeyburst Yamano Export Non-Chambered OHSC & Docs
From Gibson’s great Standard years come this stunning non-chambered 1998 Honeyburst Gibson Les Paul Standard. This is a great looking Standard, with beautiful honeyburst plaintop which would not look out of place on a custom shop R8. It was purchased and shipped to us from Japan so would have been Yamano hand-selected Standard. It still has its Yamano booklet with it. It was built in Gibson’s Nashville plant and finished on May 1st 1998, which is before Gibson introduced chambering on their standards (mid 2006) so yes, it’s non-chambered! It has a good solid ’59 profile neck. There is still plenty of life in the frets (never had a refret so still has its fret end binding), the truss rod is fine and the neck is straight. No problems either structurally or electrically. Weight is nice and light at 4.3kg. The binding has aged to yellow which looks good against the honeyburst top. There are some very light scratches on the back and a few scrapes & bumps around the side edges, some of the usual lines in the binding, so not mint. It’s well along the road to being a real vintage looker. Nothing bad has ever happened to it with absolutely no breaks or repairs etc. Has had some replacement strap pins dropped in. Comes with its original 90’s tan Gibson HSC with pink silk shroud, which is in good condition with no issues. A rare chance to get your hands on a top quality 90’s Yamano Les Paul Standard with a really nice top, much better than your average Standard.
