Killer Three Piece Flame Top

$$$ * It has just been professionally set up and dialed in for optimal tone and playability. It is truly stage or studio ready/worthy.

For your viewing pleasure and possible consumption is a true beauty. This killer Les Paul is worth the hype. It is easy to admire the quality and craftsmanship of this stunning Yamaha SL500S. The first thing that stands out is the killer top! This baby will have heads turning everywhere she goes. These guitars are often referred to as 'lawsuit' guitars because Gibson found that it was way easier to "sue" Yamaha than to try to compete with the quality and price of their replicas. This guitar was crafted with care and it is clear to see as you examine the construction, finish, and playability.

The inspiration for this model came from Gibson's Les Paul and no detail has been spared. This model was produced from around 1976 to 1981 and they are considered some of the best vintage Japanese Les Paul models circulating the guitar world. What sets this guitar apart from others is the wood. This guitar features a 3-piece top, 3-piece body, 2 piece maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. The woods enhance the sound and what you get is a warm, creamy tone. The maple neck is a classic '59 style profile. It feels great in your hands and it is comfortable to travel up and down the neck. Cosmetically, this beauty is in exceptional vintage condition. With minimal play-wear , it is clear that this beauty was babied her whole life or spent it in a closet. Either way this queen is ready to rock!. This is simply a nice quality, vintage Japanese LP in search of a new musician who is ready to go on a visual and sonic adventure.

It has just been professionally set up and dialed in for optimal tone and playability. It has low action with no buzzing or dead spots and is an absolute joy to play. It has been deep cleaned and detailed. All guitars will arrive looking and playing great. The frets have been leveled / dressed / polished and the fingerboard was cleaned. (Unfinished Rosewood and Ebony boards get treated with Fret Doctor - a proprietary all natural oil that is the best on the market) It has brand new strings, the action was adjusted, the intonation is spot on and it plays excellent. All the electronics work flawlessly.


**** We stand behind every guitar we sell and have consistently delivered quality that beats most people expectations, earning us a reputation for quality that is unrivaled. Simply put “good enough” isn’t good enough for The Guitar Dude’s standards and we try and make every guitar be at its absolute BEST to deliver on our promise.

Terms For Returns & Re-Stocking Fee’s


We recognize and accept a 7 day return policy as per Reverb guidelines, BUT intentions of the return must be communicated in writing within 3 day of receiving the guitar as indicated by the tracking. Unless the guitar is not as described, ORIGINAL & RETURN SHIPPING COSTS INCURRED (NOT CHARGES) WILL NOT BE REFUNDED. There is a 10% Re-stocking fee for ALL guitars that are returned for ANY reason outside of damage from shipping or it arrives not as described. Please note that we record demo videos to make sure our guitars go out exactly as we describe them with zero issues. We understand that feeling comfortable is vital to the purchase of a guitar/bass so in any case, additional measurements or in hand descriptions are available prior to purchase/shipping. Thats said, guitars travel a great distance some times and in transit things can happen. Also guitars acclimate to new environments and this can cause a need for a new set up or minor adjustment. It is acceptable and normal if there is for instance a tiny bit of buzzing or the need to adjust a truss rod. We are in south Florida and if you are in a colder or less humid environment it is almost to be expected. Please read our feedback and see what our customers say. The guitar MUST BE RETURNED IN THE EXACT CONDITION it was advertised/received or it is subject to additional costs & or repair fees. We are not a big chain shop, I hope you understand. If you are uncomfortable with these terms please do not purchase. There are plenty big chain shops that can absorb free trials and shipping.
