Here is a very rare Les Paul. It’s a stunning 2016 Limited Edition USA Gibson Custom Shop VOS Les Paul 1957 Reissue (R7) in Alpine White finish w/ dark mahogany sides and back. Gibson built this exclusively for Ikebe (Japanese market). It was sent to Ikebe in Japan as either a single order made guitar or one of a small single figure run. We’ve never had another in our possession and we specialize in rarer/high end Gibson Custom Shop editions. It was recently imported by GSG from Japan. Complete with all case candy inc. certificate of authenticity booklet etc. It has a beautiful dark vintage aged rosewood fingerboard with black neck binding and fret end binding. A fairly chunky neck that I’d say is closer to an R8 in feel and it has huge sounding open zebra Custom Buckers. Has had the full VOS treatment from Gibson's custom shop so some intentional CS light ageing all over probably with some light playwear added by the previous owner but no obvious dings or blemishes save for a tiny scrape on the very edge of the headstock, very insignificant but worth pointing out given the value of this guitar. Obviously no issues at all, no breaks, repairs or modifications. Complete with original historic pink velvet crush lined Lifton reissue hard shell case also in great condition with key.  A one off chance to own something very special to sit alongside your R7 Goldtop; a great guitar and you wont go wrong with this one as a long term investment. In the meantime take a look at the pics, I think they speak for themselves. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK. Don't miss it, once it’s gone it’s gone.
