A Unique Guitar:When I first bought this it was an imported Japanese Epiphone Les Paul Special that had been made only for the Japanese market in Japan. Very high quality. It purported to be TV Yellow but in reality it was Homer Simpson puke green/yellow and looked absolutely disgusting. Despite this I willingly bought it because it played and sounded as good as any P90 Les Paul type guitar I had ever played.In the fullness of time I had the original pick ups changed to Jason Lollar P90'S and also had the guitar completely dismantled and stripped of the hideous finish. Luckily it was a beautiful Mahogany below and with loving care and attention and oiling it now looks majestic.

All work was carried out by Charlie Chandler at great expense but has in my opinion proved worth it.

I am only selling as I mostly play acoustic these days and have moved to a smaller property so have been reluctantly selling guitars and gear that I really cant justify keeping. There is a slight ding on the front lower edge but purely cosmetic and I'm sure could be rubbed out if someone knows what they are doing. But it is purely cosmetic and a bit of natural reliccing.
I strongly urge anyone to come and play and hear this guitar for yourself.
Collection in person only from near to Dorking in Surrey. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/972/42227231772_be1db0d2ca_z.jpg
I am near to Dorking in Surrey and welcome anyone coming and trying first. In fact I am only prepared to sell to someone who collects so you are very welcome by arrangement to come and if for any reason you do not like the guitar then there is no expectation or   pressure.I have a Gibson gig bag for the guitar.I would also consider a trade for  a telecaster provided it fits the following criteria:Rosewood neck.Light in weight ( 7 1/2 lbs max)Relatively slim neck profile (Definitely not a baseball bat)
