SORRY SOLD OUT! : New release from our JVG Vintage Guitar Vault now available and curently IN STOCK: Here we a have a great player its sort of an R-9 looking Tiger Flamed monster and it sounds amazing like a great Les Paul should this instrument is a true vintage guitar in its own right it is nearly 40 year old and is well preserved please look closely you do not want to miss this one. This Vintage Les Paul has that 1959 Burst Replica feel big time. This is quality built straight away rocker out of Japan in the heat of the Lawsuit era at the great Hishino / Ibanez / Greco Factory this guitar is an exact example of why they were sued in those days... have a good look at the pics... First the headstock is true to the Gibson Les Paul shape and was originally sold without a logo to make it tuff to trace its origin. The rich looking fingerboard on this example just oozes 59 Burst with its GORGEOUS Fit & Finish is real fine quality Wow look at that beautiful grain... now that you notice that this in of it self captures the auora and vibe of the Beauty of the burst... the frets show very little wear a good 85++% almost minty... the neck itself is so slick have a look its an amazing neck too see its beautiful flamed maple 3 piece like 70's Gibsons were done this way too also body is sandwitch style as well the body is nice grade Mahogany and not chambered nicely bound same as vintage Gibson sized bindings nice touch because buy this time in the 70's Gibson switched to the larger ugly looking bulky binding they later switched back in the early 80's to the original vintage size like this one has ... Japan was knocking off the early 59 burst at least a decade before the US started reissuing their own designs.. These vintage Japanese guitars were ahead of their time a step ahead if you will... They not only set out to build them to look like the old Gibson but they really wanted the sound to be right too and that is evident with these PAF replica pickups made by the great MAXON they Maxon really nailed the Paf tone pretty darn good and this example sounds so great they get the great sustain of a vintage PAF and have a sweet tone and then when cranked they can get expressivly nasty with some harmonics & overtones. The Maxon company is responsible for the famous tone produced by the Ibanez TS808 & Maxon , TS9 and so on... They really know their TONE!.. These Maxon pickups are highly sought after now by players & collectors and high bidders have paid upwards of $400 for one of these Maxon Paf's... JVG will not be parting out this beautiful timeless example of Workmanship it is a work of art as it is... The tone is nothing short of that of the High end Tokai Ls120 we had a few years ago it too came with these type Maxon Paf's ..its ( the Tokai Ls120 ) sound is Truly Legendary and those Tokais are selling for well over $3500 now...ya that what I say..WoW... This guitar has it ALL... The SOUND - The Playability action is dead on EZ ROCK Machine... I suggest that who ever layed down the Burst finish on this guitar with its realistic 59 classic Cherry Burst flame top was truly a master finish man its really looks JUST RIGHT!!!!!... man I can not say enough about this little Japanese work of art... They TRULY NAILED IT...Its condition is WAY ABOVE AVERAGE too its really a Beauty in all aspects. This example is very clean for a nearly 40 year old rocker..with several lacquer brush tip matched touch ups at backs edges here and there no big deal its on the back and they match in color now so at a few feet away it looks real clen and the fron is very clean and original...and so this guitar is JVG Rated at excellent vintage condition 8.9+/10 easily or better... 100% excellent working condition, excellent electronics, frets & playability with great low action you can dial in either way you like it. Pickups sound truly awesome and I campare to a fine Gibson tone wise as good or better. A Great AAAA Tiger Flame Maple Les Paul for a song... just in!.... available today . Interested ?
