1970 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe with OHSC, EXC Condition!

This is a Left Handed Gibson Les Paul Deluxe manufactured during the highly transitional period of mid-1969 to early 1970. The neck has no “Made in USA” stamp, a mini volute(vs the full volute seen in most of 1970 and beyond), pots and serial # date to early 1970, and the case retains the Black exterior with Marigold lining of the 1960s, but with 2 foam inserts (something seen in 70s Gibson cases).

2018 Gil Yaron Bone, Honey Drop, Near Mint with Extra Options!

For Sale is a very rare left-handed Gil Yaron Bone. The guitar is finished in Honey Drop/Lemon Burst. The guitar was purchased from Destroy All Guitars in 2018, which is the only authorized seller of Gil’s guitars.

The guitar is immaculate. There are just two or three very small/minute blemishes in the finish: one is a small scratch below the back plate and the other appears to be clear overspray. Even with the blemishes I would rate the guitar a conservative 9 – 9.5 / 10.
This one includes all of the upgrades Gil offers except the trapezoid inlays. See full specs list below.

Some of the plastic parts were switched from cream to black. The owner received the pickup rings and black switch tip from Gil. The knobs are after-market but they are Montreux Time Machine Collection knobs, which are very high quality and true to the ’59 specs. The bridge pickup cover and pickguard were removed, but all the original parts are included in the sale. There are also two custom made pickguards which will be included in the sale (made by Mike at QuickGuards).
