Here is a very rare Gibson Les Paul Standard Silver Sparkle from 2000. These were a Gibson exclusive run, built in very limited numbers back in 2000 for select dealers and were not readily available across retail outlets. Most went to Japan for Yamano of course. This one's a true Yamano with it's relevant paperwork. It was built in Nashville and is dated Feb 19th, 2000.  It has a slimmer '59 profile neck and of course dates from before Gibson first began chambering the Standards. As you can see the 'Silver Sparkle' top on this is pretty stunning, set off really well imo with the cream binding and dark mahogany back and neck. It plays beautifully as good as any custom shop Les Paul, as others have noted from this run. The Gibson 490/498s have been replaced with superb sounding Seth Lovers. It's in wonderful condition and has absolutely no breaks, repairs or big nasty dings. She still has its factory fitted Grovers and all the hardware is untarnished with a nice shine to it. Heaps of life in the frets, the truss rod is fine and the neck is straight. No electrical problems, nice & sharp defined sound. Weight is 4.2kg. It's pre-owned so not mint condition, but is excellent. No harsh wear, buckle rash, just some light marks & some fine finish lines in the clearcoat around the binding and back. Comes with original brown/tan Gibson hard shell case and Japanese docs. A very rare Gibson Les Paul. 

We carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special.  All pictures are of actual guitar, we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK.
