Gibson Les Paul Custom 1990 Yamano Alpine White w/ Steve Jones Pistols Vibe OHSC
Up for grabs here is a very cool 1990 Gibson Les Paul Alpine White Custom with a bit of a Steve Jones vibe. It was built in Gibson’s Nashville plant and finished on January 16th 1990. We imported it from Japan so it would originaly have been a Yamano order guitar, but no longer has the documents. Of course being from 1990 it has an Ebony fingerboard, not Richlite as Gibson have used of late on their customs. It has somewhere between a ‘59-‘60 neck profile and weighs in at 4.6kg. We love the Steve Jones waterslide decals on this so have left them in place just in case you wanted to save thousands of pounds not buying the custom shop version. It's a really cool looking guitar. The Alpine white finish has darkened and yellowed over the decades and is fairly uniform, not as patchy as you usually with old Alpine Whites. The gold metal hardware has that dull aged look and it has some fine finish checking on the headstock. What more could you want! Plenty of life left in the frets (never been refretted, still has nibs), the truss rod is fine and the neck is straight. No headstock (or any other) breaks or repairs and no problems either structurally or electrically. Complete with original tan Gibson pink-lined HSC. Now if you are looking for a mint unplayed collectors example this one probably aint for you. That said, it’s not bad at all. As I mentioned, it has very little of the uneven patches of colour discolouration you often see on old Alpine Whites and absolutely nothing bad has ever happened to this Custom, no breaks or repairs. It still has its original Gibson Bill Lawrence humbuckers. It comes with original pink lined 1990’s tan Gibson HSC which is in excellent condition. All latches working. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, it’s a great old early 1990 custom!
