Here a rare Yamaha LP Custom, the 1970/80s, “THE” top of the range version of Japanese Yamaha Les Paul model, these guitars were produced during the 1970’s till the early 1980s, along the well known Yamaha SG range.
This Yamaha LP Custom was produced in Yamaha’s Matsumoku’s Custom shops and was deemed the top type of the Yamaha Les Paul (SL/LP) range. The guitar sports a solid mahogany body, fitted with a set neck, ebony fretboard, gold hardware, dual metal covered Yamaha Humbuckers. The guitar body is decorated with mother of pearl fret markers and cream coloured multiple binding that has beautifully aged to a cream yellow hue. The Lord Players and Studio Lords, Les Paul models were much more than Yamaha’s Les Paul copies, these were solidly built quality guitars built from high quality wood and top end materials. The sound is awesome and beats high end Gibson counterparts; for example plugged in over my Hughes and Kettner valve amp it’s possible to emulate the Peter Green sound without using a box of electronic wizardry, just the guitar. So go on, here’s your chance to get a real quality Les Paul model, killer looks, great sound and oozing of mojo and vintage vibe.
