Description

Here is a somewhat rare lawsuit-era 1970’s Japanese Heerby Les Paul Standard. This was made by Kasuga in Japan and we don’t often find them for sale, they were a decent vintage Japanese brand but very short-lived. They are therefore found in much smaller numbers than the Grecos, Burnys and Tokais of the era. No serial but we think this one was made around the mid-late 1970s. Set-neck of course (not a cheaper bolt-on) and streaked rosewood fingerboard. Nicely voiced humbuckers (we haven’t pulled them so not sure what they are, probably Maxons). Comfortable ‘59 profile neck with a sturdy volute and binding. Veneer style construction like a lot of these 70's vintage Japanese Les Paul clones which gives it a resonant almost hollow-body feel and sound. Neck is straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets. Weight 3.5kg. Decent condition for the age. Some dings and bumps/ scuffs etc. Nothing bad has happened to its absolutely no breaks or repairs. The strap pins have been slightly repositioned at some point in its history so 2 small pin holes to the side the strap pins. It's had the strings changed, frets polished, board conditioned & set-up etc since the pics were taken. Complete with cool old Japanese leatherette case, all zips and poppers working.

At Gas Station Guitars we carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special.  All pictures are of actual guitars, all guitars are in hand and we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship worldwide to the USA, E.U, Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and of course the UK
