Gibson 2006 Les Paul Standard Heritage Cherry Yamano Export Non-Chambered AAA+
Up for grabs here is an absolutely stunning non-chambered Yamano Ordered Gibson Les Paul Iced Tea Standard from 2006. This is a superb example of a Yamano, with beautiful flame and maple graining throughout the top. Yamano Music (aka Yamano Gakki) was the exclusive distributor of Gibson guitars from 1988 until around 2007. As Japan was a massive market for Gibson, Yamano Music had the clout to special order guitars according to their specifications for the Japanese market and have them branded as "Limited Edition" models. This often means exceptional tops and better attention to details, especially regarding wood selection and finishes. An internet search will yield many praising the virtues of these guitars as well as naysayers but in our experience every Yamano Gibson we've had in the shop has been an exceptional instrument. This beauty bears testament to Yamano’s ability to source these type of guitars…. It was built in Gibson’s Nashville plant and finished on June 29th 2006, which is right around the time Gibson introduced chambering on their standards (mid 2006) but this one just managed to escape and is non-chambered, weighing at a good solid 4.4kg. It has a comfortable ’59 profile neck. It also has an exceptional top with some distinctive lengthways linier grain. It’s not surprising the Yamano reps took this one back to Japan. 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. Nothing bad has ever happened to it with absolutely no breaks, repairs or mods etc. Very clean condition with no big notable dings or bumps, just 2 or 3 very small shallow dimples, the kind you can only see if you look closely when angling the guitar towards light. Is complete with its original pickguard but has never had it fitted so no holes. Comes with its original Gibson HSC which is also in fine condition, with all latches and combi lock working. Also includes Japanese Yamano booklet. A rare chance to get your hands on a top quality Yamano hand-selected Les Paul Standard with a really exceptional top, much better than your average Standard and representing an excellent investment opportunity.
