Peter Frampton. Frampton Comes Alive was being played almost continually on AM radio in those days. When I saw the album cover, I thought "Man, that guy and THAT guitar are HAPPENING!"

I didn't know about different cutaway binding widths from different eras. My first Lester was a '95 Standard with wide cutaway binding. So when I got my Access with narrow binding, I thought it was sloppy finishing that had covered over the binding :facepalm:

We do not get to see many early '57 GT's with Black Plastics here, so I thought Members here might enjoy seeing this Mint example. This was previously owned by INXS's Bass Player, Gary Beers, when Dom bought this in Sydney.

The maker of Gibson guitars, omnipresent for decades on the American Rock 'N Roll stage, is filing for bankruptcy protection after wrestling for years with debt.

He spent years cultivating his own sound and you should too. Quit robbing food out of your kid's mouths by spending thousands on guitars, pickups, amps, bone nuts, bridges and other assorted parts trying to chase his sound down.

All original 1956 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with its original four latch Lifton case and guitar strap. Clean, lightweight (8lbs 5oz) and resonant. It has a nice comfortable neck, screaming P90s, and all original parts. If you look hard enough, you can see some flames under the gold finish. :yesway:

As this is one of the cheaper Pauls, I expected some corners to be cut in the fit and finish department. I didn't, however, expect the Gibson logo to look like it was printed on the headstock with a sh*tty dot matrix printer from the 80s.
