What is amazing about this Les Paul? 

This Limited Edition Gibson Les Paul Traditional was originally built for (and handpicked by) Gibson's notoriously-exacting Japanese distributors.  The Japan market, at the time, was willing to pay top-dollar for the best instruments Gibson could build, and this is the result.  A few weren't exported to Japan and found there way to N.A. dealers.   I bought this beauty new in 2016 from Long & McQuade in Montreal (a couple of the pics are from their original listing - with this exact guitar).

Easily the nicest-looking, best-playing Les Paul Traditional I've ever held.  Amazing Flame top, outstanding book-matching, incredible '59 Tribute Humbuckers, and incredible playability.  The attention to detail on this guitar is superb.  It's never been gigged and kept in immaculate condition (this guitar has remained almost completely unplayed since I bought it).  It's Mint!  (No buckle-rash, no pick scratches.., as perfect as a guitar gets).

Some words from Gibson about this model:  "The Gibson Les Paul Traditional Limited features a body made of low-density mahogany, fitted without the traditional 9-Hole Weight Relief giving it sustain for days. The body is completed by a superior maple top, the flame of which glimmers through the sunburst finish.

Two hand-wired Gibson 1959 Tribute humbucker pickups feature Alnico II magnets and a hot wound screw-coil to deliver authentic vintage sounds in the style of the legendary PAF humbucker of the 1950s. This electric guitar convinces with a warm, yet transparent sound, and organic dynamics. The pickups are managed using a three-way toggle switch as well as individual volume and tone controls.
