Are there any more of them? A few I know are the Blackburst, the sweet cherry 1958 Burst, a cherry 1960 Custom, a 1956 Lp wit ha black finish, a 1956 LP which a brown finish...

This is the beloved Burst that Alex Conti used at the height of his career with Lake, Atlantis, and Rudolf Rock & die Schocker. It made numerous appearances on records and videos. Oh, and it sounds like a really phat pissed off Telecaster!

Some have the LP buying fever and some the building fever. I have both! Here is my new project: building a LP from a DIY kit bought for about $200! The basic kit is $199 but I asked for custom options...

2018 Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1968 Les Paul Custom and 1968 Les Paul Goldtop. Custom limited to 300 total. Goldtop limited to 68 total. I found this bit in the promo material interesting...

Did my first night as a volunteer musician on call in the ICU, oncology and transplant wards at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. You have to play from the MOC approved song list, no songs about death, heaven, hell, drugs, sex, religion or politics (unless they ask). But it doesn't matter, the people are just so grateful.

I went from all Explorers to a mix of Explorers, 335's and LP shaped guitars but overall I personally just think Explorers feel, sound and play better. Seems they are back to my #1 spots again gigging.

I have 2 R8's and I'm trying to gauge how much sustain I really should be getting. I know that sustain total varies between guitars and is dependent on multiple factors. Maybe my expectations are too high; I certainly cannot get a bite and come back and still hear them ringing out.

This is a shame. Thanks 'hoss' for the many years of great guitar porn.

I'm building a really basic home recording studio just to have a little fun for $250-$300 and share my music with friends. I have a pretty good understanding on everything I need minus what kind of computer itself I need.

Ok, here it is. #62 over 5 years now. Give it life. My take is the Too many miles and a million years away for someone very dear to me..so far away and life is as it is.
