How to clean Tobacco stains on a Gibson Les Paul Custom???

Hey everyone, my Buddy just got a 84 Les Paul Custom and the inlays, binding and the headstock inlay are sooo stained they arent yellow they are actually orange-yellow.......my guess is the previous owner was a smoker and he definatly gigged it, so that orange-yellowing could be nicotine stains??

 

Anyways ........How can it be cleaned off?......that is ''if'' it can be cleaned off..........

Thanks

The binding is probably a lost cause, might not ever come clean. Lightened up maybe, restored to the original color, doubtful. I'm sure the wood needs some attention too if everything else is so dirty. Do the virtuoso thing as AXE (trademark R) suggested. It's made to take care of older insturments.
