About This Listing

Here’s a rare and all original Matsumoku made in Japan “Aspen” Les Paul. Absolutely gorgeous, really hard to find with the original bridge parts and Maxon pickups with great vibe. Aged cream binding on body and neck, pearloid block inlays, and includes original hard shell case. There are various surface scratches and finish imperfections on the guitar and the hard case. All metal parts have oxidation consistent with age and vintage, with the gold plated Maxon stamped pickups showing natural fading and relic wear. These were made by Matsumoku in the 1960s-70s and are very nice quality instruments (same company that made Ibanez guitars).

I’ve played this along side an entry level Greco and Ibanez, and I prefer the Aspen, with its semi-hollow chambered body making it super light (just over 7 lb)! It plays easily with a 10”-14” fingerboard radius. All electronics function perfectly and the guitar plays great with low action. This is the only Aspen I’ve seen that has the Gibson headstock shape and is complete, so I’ve priced it accordingly.

It’ll be pro packed for shipment with full shipping protection and insurance.

I'm a musician and in order for me to continue offering items from my private collection, I'm not able to offer returns, so please ask questions prior to purchase. Serious inquiries only please. Be sure to check out my other listings for more great items!
