Rare Japanese Epiphone Les Paul Standard Figured Honeyburst 2001 w/ Open Book HS
A rare chance to own a quality crafted (and very pretty) Japanese Epiphone Les Paul Standard Honeyburst flametop. Built in 2001 at the legendary FujiGen plant in Japan. This guitar is in museum quality condition. It looks almost brand new! These awesome Les Pauls are not to be confused with the cheap mass-produced Chinese/whatever Epiphones you see in pretty much every guitar store across the world. This was built to a very high standard. It has the Japanese Gibson open book headstock, long neck tenon, ’59 profile neck, and a really nice flame honeyburst veneer maple top (the Japanese FujiGen Epiphones were all veneer). Weight dead on 4.8kg. No issues structurally or electrically. Neck dead straight, truss rod fine. Plenty of life left in the frets. it is the cleanest example of one of these we have ever seen. No blemishes at all, it looks unplayed. All original with no mods. The bridge pics up cover was removed by the original owner to to give it a Jimmy Page no. 1 vibe. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story. It is complete with original padded Japanese leatherette gig-bag. A rare Japanese FujiGen built Epiphone Les Paul.
