Please check my feedback. The auction may end at a weird time for you so place your max bid early so you don't miss out. Sorry for my wall of text. My listings have a lot of details and photos for serious buyers. It's your hard earned money so you deserve as much detail as possible. Please take the time to read the whole listing in detail, inspect every photo carefully and ask any questions first before bidding. Thank you. Description: You are bidding on a used 2005 "Made in Japan" by Fujigen Epiphone Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty" LTD LQ (Limited Lacquer) guitar with special deluxe padded gig bag. The LTD LQ series was a special limited run with full nitrocellulose lacquer finish, special vintage style Epiphone logo and "F" starting serial number. They were the top of the line during their run. I've sold a couple Standard LTD LQ models but this is my first Custom. They are very hard to find. Grab it while you can because they rarely come up, especially at this quality with upgrades. CONDITION: This guitar has been fully upgraded with quality components as listed above in detail. The Grovers were drop in replacements and no drilling had to be done. I could be wrong but the ratio feels like the higher quality 18:1 instead of the standard 16:1. I have a set of 16:1 to compare to. The guitar is of exceptional quality. The only blemish is some light buckle scratches/"worming" in the back. The rest of the guitar is super clean with just some very light standard play wear. The frets are in excellent condition. The neck is straight. There are no cracks, repairs or any structural issues. The action is low without buzzing when played with a normal attack. The gig bag is in nice condition with no rips or tears. There's nothing else to say. The guitar is super awesome! I will do a full setup before shipping it out. I posted many high resolution photos of this guitar down this page, available for download in full resolution for you to inspect the detailed cosmetic condition for yourself. PLEASE take the time to read the whole listing in detail, inspect every photo carefully and ask any questions first before bidding. Thank you. SHIPPING: This auction will end approximately 3:10PM Monday Japan time. I will have it boxed and ready to go with the Customs form partially filled out. If you pay immediately I can ship it out the same day. I only live 2 blocks from the Post Office.

I ship to most other countries too, but please contact me first before bidding if your country is not listed in the above paragraph. Your country may not qualify for my free shipping offer because of size restrictions or high shipping costs. Italy: I will ship to Italy but be warned, packages can take up to 6 weeks from being stuck in your Customs. This doesn't happen often but it has happened twice out of the several times I've shipped to Italy. Please only bid if you can accept waiting. South America & Africa: $125 shipping for South America and Africa because EMS charges approximately $250-275 to ship there. I cover shipping over $125 to these two continents. Also, EMS doesn't give estimates of shipping times to South America and Africa. Please contact me first before bidding. International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or my free shipping offer. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs may be prior to bidding/buying. If there is a charge, do not confuse it for additional shipping charges. Your country's Customs agency can hold this item for longer than the 3-6 business day EMS promises. This rarely happens in most countries, but it can happen. I ship during Japanese business hours (Monday - Friday minus Japanese holidays) About EMS: I use EMS because it's the safest, fast and best value. I've shipped well over 150 valuable fragile guitars worldwide using EMS with great success. Their service is top notch, safe and very reliable. All items will be fully insured for declared amount. PAYMENT: I accept Paypal. (Please open an account before bidding) Please contact me first before bidding if you have zero feedback. I reserve the right to cancel suspicious bids. I ONLY SHIP TO ADDRESSES PAYPAL APPROVES FOR SELLER PROTECTION. ABOUT ME: I'm an American citizen from California currently living and working in Japan. I've been playing and working on guitars for over 20+ years. I live and breathe guitars! I've been selling high ticket items and guitars internationally on eBay since April 1999 with zero negative feedback so you can bid with confidence. Please check my feedback. A majority of my feedback is from selling, not buying. Not all the guitars I've sold show up in my eBay history so you can check out some of the guitars I've sold and shipped internationally here. I give very individual attention to my customers. Great customer service and fast response is my top priority. I care greatly about my customers and the guitars I sell. All the guitars I sell are handpicked by me. I only buy guitars to sell that I would keep for myself. I spend hours for each of my ebay listings and photos to hopefully increase your buying experience. I try to show as much detail of the guitars as possible. I don't want anything to be a surprise when you receive your guitar. Hopefully this will be the guitar you love enough to pass down to your loved ones.
