72 walnut top.1 of 111.
That thing looks like business. What P90s do you have in there?
This one is my #2 guitar, an '83. It now has black pickup covers, which look way better.
This is an '04 Standard, which I rarely play live. I use it when I want a humbucker LP sound for recording.
I bought it new as part of a package deal. It and the next guitar, a LP Melody Maker, came together for $1,980. Ironically, I like the MM much better, and have put countless hours more play on it than on the Standard.
I also have an '01 Junior, but I don't have any pix of it.
09 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro:
Square ear Super D/Dimarzio PAF (in the pic-the Super D will be for sale, shortly), now Rio Grande BBQ in the bridge. Stock electronics tossed for CTS. God, I love this guitar. WANT Faber Tone Lock ABR and adapter posts.
73 Gibson Les Paul Custom:
Ex-Kahlered and filled by RS. Fantastic player with great big refret frets and Ibanez Super 70s pups. I think I'll put the Pat #s back in when I get back home and play it, as-is. This is, without a doubt, my pride and joy.
93 Gibson Les Paul Classic Plus:
57 Classics in the pic, then X2N/Super D, then...
Amateur refret that plays ok but looks bad, ABR on some kind of conversion posts (A2 498T/490R, nowadays, with a Faber Tone Lok bridge). It's one hell of a player. I didn't like it much initially but it grew on me like a mofo. It's probably my best playing LP.
74 Les Paul Signature:
Stone stock oddball semihollow model with low impedance pups. I had thought to sell it until the last time I picked it up. I have to wrestle with it, a bit but it sounds SO good for just about everything. Seriously-it excels with lots of gain.
Yeah, not a Gibson BUT...
86/87 Burny Les Paul Custom RR thing:
CC/59 combo, super dark rosewood board, fret edge binding, Faber Tone Lok on 40mm stainless posts. I have to be honest: it's better than any Korean or Chinese Epi I've ever played BUT it's got a few boogers, the biggest of which seems to be soft frets. They have worn a lot since I got it just over 1 1/2 years ago and they weren't that big to start with. The fret edge binding isn't the cleanest, either. The sound, however, is big and full yet bright up top like a good LP should be-much more lively than my old 05 LPC. I toss around the idea of a stainless refret but if it happens, it probably won't be for some time.
Hondo 2 Les Paul Custom copy:
One of the oddball setnecks. Solid ash body/maple neck/rosewood. Thinner body than Gibson. Super comfy player. Refretted with 6000s, Schaller tuners, Gotoh bridge, CTS, X2N/Super D. You wouldn't believe this is a Hondo. I NEED to get it refinished and reassembled.
