I’m almost tempted to just let the pictures do the talking here. One of the best looking  Custom Shop Standards we had in recent times. It has an astounding 2-piece Tobacco Burst quilted maple top with mahogany back and neck. It’s a real head-turner and here aren’t many of these out there (we are lucky enough to have one more of these Yamanos on our website– check out our other guitars). Anyway, it’s from 1996, (bang in the middle of Gibson’s good wood era), built in Gibson’s USA Nashville plant. It’s perhaps unsurprising that it was hand-selected by Yamano for export to Japan, which bears testimony to Yamano getting all the greatest Les Paul tops in the period they imported Gibsons to Japan. It’s in all original condition with a comfortable ‘59 neck profile and weighs in at a good solid 4.3kg. Plenty of life left in the frets (never been refretted, still has its fret end binding), the truss rod is fine and the neck is dead straight. No problems either structurally or electrically. Very clean and not much by way of wear, just those little swirling scratches you get from cleaning, no big dings or knocks. Obviously no breaks or repairs. Comes with Japanese Yamano warrently card and booklet, pre-pack checklist and other assorted Japanese docs.  Original purple crushed velvet lined Gibson HSC is in excellent condition with all latches working fine. Tops like this come around very rarely so don’t miss it, a great playing Les Paul and an being a Yamano with a top like this, an excellent investment opportunity!

 

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.
