Up for grabs is this truly gorgeous 22-year old figured Wine Red Gibson Les Paul Custom. This one was hand selected for export from Gibson USA to Japan by Yamano, who it is said secured many of the greatest Gibson guitars of the 90’s & 2000’s. It was built in Gibson’s Nashville plant and finished on Oct 15th, 2000. Of course being from 2000 it has an Ebony fingerboard, not richlite. It’s in great condition for a 2000 with absolutely no breaks, repairs or mods. Bit of a Jerry Cantrell 'Wino' vibe with this (just nicer!) It has comfortable thickish ’59 neck profile and weighs in at 4.6kg. It is all factory spec just as it came out of Nashville. Heaps of life in the frets (never had a refret so still has fret-end binding intact), the truss rod is fine and the neck is straight. It plays like butter with a nice low acton. No problems either structurally or electrically. It comes with its Yamano import booklet. It is beginning to age very nicely with the binding starting to yellow (especially around the headstock) & the metal parts taking on a cool dull vintage patina whilst retaining the gold. It's pre-owned so obviously not mint condition, but it is very clean for a 20+ year old Custom. No nasty paint chips or anything horrendous. A very nice Custom. Complete with original pink lined tan Gibson HSC which good condition with working combi-lock & latches. A stunning Gibson Yamano Export Les Paul Custom. Don’t miss it as the Japanese Yamanos rarely come up for sale. I’ll let the pics do the rest of the talking.
