Those "Epiphone Japan" models, with the Gibson "Open Book" head stock, were for the "Japanese Only" market,

and not designed to be (officially) exported. So, they were licensed, by Gibson, to use that head-stock design,

for only that market. But, of course, with Internet sellers, and folks that travel to Japan, they were bound

to show up, elsewhere. Great Guitars, too! [thumbup] With original "Kalamazoo" spec's, save the "Epiphone"

instead of "Gibson" inlay.


Enjoy your Les Paul "Goldtop!" [biggrin]
