1998 Epiphone Japan (Fujigen) LPS-85F Les Paul Standard w/Gibson Pickups
Created for the Japanese market using all the famous Gibson traits (open book headstock, Les Paul insignia, trapezoid inlays), these combined the Gibson history with Fujigen craftsmanship and were made to Gibson specs. These models are fairly uncommon outside of Japan and the 85F model is one of the rarest!
Mahogany body with a carved maple top that has a great "Burst" aesthetic, mahogany neck with a slim profile and rosewood fingerboard. Weighs a very reasonable 4.3kg's.
Previous owner upgraded the pickups to a Gibson 490R and 498T set along with a Switchcraft jack, CTS pots and Orange Drop capacitors.
Has a few small dings and signs of use as pictured but no major signs of wear. Plenty of life in the frets and the neck is straight and smooth.
