1980 Aria Pro II Japan Leopard Les Paul Standard (Cherry Sunburst)
Made by the Matsumoku factory in the 1980, this is a gorgeous copy of the famous Gibson Les Paul sold under the Aria Pro II brand. Weighs just over 4.2kg's, pancake mahogany body and with a plain maple top and beautiful cherry sunburst finish. Slim 60's neck profile mahogany neck is comfortable in the hand. Loaded with Gotoh HAP tuners, it's got a Dimarzio pickup in the bridge position and an unknown aftermarket pickup in the neck. The pots and electronics are original and working well.
Restrung prior to listing and ready to play as it sits, basic signs of wear and tear for 40 years of use (as pictured). Frets are polished and shiny with plenty of life left and the truss is working.
