*****Per gli utenti di eBay italiano/To Italian eBayer*****Ti ringrazio per il tuo interesse. Se tu non sai bene l'inglese, cioe' non capisci bene la descrizione di sotto, non esitare a chiedermi qualsiasi domanda in italiano!! Parlo io italiano (ma non molto bene), quindi provo di risponderti nella lingua vostra/ in italiano!! Grazie.This auction is for a Epiphone Japan Limited Les Paul Standard with nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
According to the following web site:www.guitardaterproject.org/epiphone.aspx , this guitar was produced in Korea, but judging from the headstock and my research, I believe this one was made in Japan by Fujigen factory which is famous factory produced Fender Japan early models, Ibanez Japanese-made models, many of Orville and so on.
The serial number starts with a number (not a alphabetical letter): As far as I did the research, all Epiphone Les Paul models have the serial numbers starting with an alphabetical letter(s) which show(s) the manufacturing factory except that some of Japanese made ones from Fujigen factory have serial numbers starting with a number like this one's .
And this guitar has a vintage style Epiphone logo on the headstock which shows that this one is one of the LQ series issued years ago and has nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

NOTICE /TERMSPlease read the following items before bidding or purchasing. If you dont accept all of them then please do not bid or purchase.++TERMS/CONDITION OF ITEM++
Please read the following items before bidding or purchasing. If you dont accept all of them then please do not bid or purchase.Condition of the guitar:
Almost all of the guitars in my store are not a brand new, but a used one, so they wont always be in "PERFECT" condition. This can be especially true of "VINTAGE" guitars that have had many years of use and because of this they can sometimes have issues with playability, so for many reasons they may need care and maintenance before reaching an optimal playing condition. Please read the following detailed information that should always be considered when buying a used guitar.*NeckNowadays a lot of guitar players know the term "JV" (Japan Vintage) and that the values of guitars made in and around the JV era are getting higher. I am glad and proud as a Japanese person that these guitars were made by expert crafstmen with selected materials and I totally agree with the reputation that these guitars have earned. However, in Japan, there is a significant humidity difference throught the year which can have a bad influence on the materials in guitars if they are not well kept carefully maintained. Additionally these guitars were often purchased by beginners or students and can tend to be poorly treated without ever having any maintenance. Sometimes they are stored away for ages after a very short period of use, as a result it is often the case that they have issue's about the neck.I have played guitar for many years and all the guitars in my store were listed only after I checked played them personally. All of the guitars in my store passed the normal standards/my standards unless particularly stated otherwise.
However that does not mean "perfect" condition as most guitars in the world have some issue be it a scratch or a break. Additionally, the pressure change, humidity change and change in temperature have a bad influence on the guitars during the shipping or after arriving in your country so they may need some adjustment before playing. *FretsAs the guitars are used the frets are worn more or less. I cannot say 70% or 80% left or something like that,,,,,because who can count the degree in a precise way? So please check the degree by the pictures. If the guitar needs refreting or if there is any defect with the frets (judging by my standards) it will be stated in the description.
*(Fret /String) BuzzI check the Fret (String) Buzz by picking normally with light gauge strings (009-046), adjusting the bottom string height (low E) to 2.00mm and the top string height (high E) to 1.7mm
The guitars are used, so slight buzz could occur. If the fret buzz of the guitar is above the normal standard, the detail is described in the description of the guitar.
Anyway, how you feel the fret buzz depends on the player, so any requests to settle repair fee is not accepted.*Cosmetic conditionAs the guitars are used, they might have a number of dents, scratches, blemishes, chips and so on. Unlesss they are in mint or near mint condition, you cannot describe all of them, so please judge the condition by the pictures.*Electrical partsALL the electrical parts work fine unless there is a particiular fault in which case it will be mentioned in the description, but they might have a slight scratchy sound.*Tax and dutiesAs stated above, the auction winner or the buyer is responsible for any and all applicable taxes and duties levied by their government.
Before placing a bid or clicking "Buy it now" button, please enquire with your local customs for detailed information.
*ReturnPlease check the guitar within two days of it being delivered to you.
If it differs significantly from the description I will accept the return.
Payment made for returned goods and the outward shipping fee you paid will be refunded to you within three business days after the guitar is returned and checked by me on recieved. Please note that any return freight charges, taxes /or duties you pay for returning an item are not settled.*Insurance for transportationThe insurance of EMS would cover any damage, loss or the robbery/theft of an item during transportation.
The EMS insurance reimbursements might take more than a month to process.
