This rare Epiphone LTD LQ Limited Edition Les Paul, was made in Japan & has a full Nitro Cellulose lacquer finish.
The Nitro lacquer finish was only available on the "Not for Export" Limited run LTD Models made in 2005 at great the Fujigen Gakki guitar factory in Japan.
The Nitro finish is also very thin allowing full tonal resonance of the guitar. . Only the Epiphone Les Paul guitars made in JAPAN have the Gibson
"Open-Book" shaped headstock, and long neck tenon (as shown in the photos), and were not for export out of Japan.
Just like the Fujigen Orville guitars, this Japan Epiphone Les Paul has the Deep joint Tenon that goes into the neck pocket under the pickup
that gives the guitar superb sustain and resonance. This guitar is not be be confused or compared to the Korea or China made lower quality Epiphone guitars
with the funky shaped headstock. The Orville Les Paul guitars licensed by Gibson were also produced at the Fuji-Gen factory from 1988 to 1998, and
then changed to Epiphone Japan until all were discontinued in 2006 About Epiphone

Fugi -Gen Gakki of Japan uses the highest quality tone woods that are seasoned & dried for a minimum of 5 years. This
quality wood produces a much more resonant, and lighter weight guitar WITHOUT the drilled weight relief holes that many well know makers in the U.S. are
doing. This is a Solid body guitar / the mahogany body is Not chambered. Fuji-Gen still curently manufactures fine Les Paul style guitars today under

COSMETIC CONDITION: The condition of this guitar is a strong 9.25 out of 10, and is in excellent plus condition. At first look the guitar appears to
be Mint, however under very close examination there just a few very minor cosmetic flaws. There are 2 super faint, shallow indentations on the back of the
body, and a small faint rub mark in the finish on the edge of body. (See last photos at bottom of listing). These blemishes are on the surface of the
finish only. Other than these blemish marks the guitar is near mint condition, and event the headstock has no chips or blemishes. The guitar appears
completely original with the original humbuckers & electronics. The Jumbo frets have no visible wear, and would say are 99% or better. Most
importantly, this guitar plays fantastic with super low action, no fret buzz, & without any issues whatsoever. This Epiphone LTD LQ Les Paul weighs
approximately only 8 Lbs.& 12oz. or about 3950 Grams.
