CAMEL 1978 CLP-800 Japanese lawsuit era LP

(Please only questions from serious buyers, I'm receiving too many questions about this guitar)
Extremely RARE!!! From my personal collection maybe the rarest and most fine example of a Japanese LP and this one is Dripping with mojo!
made for a short time(1977-80) , it was the Kyowa company who made fresher
they then started the higer end luthier made CAMEL brand. This guitar is absolutely stunning with masterful build quality. It sounds and plays incredible, the frets are excellent with hardly any wear. This was the highest end camel model. Only about 200 were ever made.
Solid made 2 piece Maple cap with flame NO Veneer!
Solid 2 piece mahogany back.
(8.09neck-7.95bridge)
Nitro paint with only a few slight blemishes as pictured , well cared for instrument! Weighing around 8.5 lbs, extremely resonate and blossoming tone on this one with old world tonewoods. Maple cap, mahogany body, rosewood fretboard, abalone inlays. This neck is a medium c shape, very smooth easy playing fretboard.
Try and find another one in this good of condition. The pick guard and volume/tone knobs and tuning heads are all original.

The pickups were professionally upgraded to PAF style pickups, the Bridge is a Kent Armstrong PAF and the neck is an unbranded PAF style Pickup. The pickups match well and have that vintage Les Paul sound. The pots, wiring harness and 3 way switch have been also been professionally upgraded and installed by a Luthier as well as a new tone pros bridge. The guitar is professionally set up with a new bone nut, new strings, and low fast action. I’m also including a nice fitted hard shell case.
Beautiful Guitar to look at and play. I don’t have the original pickups.
