Well look again boys
I am the guy from the Dutch forum, how are you all doing ?
The Les Paul custom from Mariana was a 1957 and not a 1954.
Peter get the guitar around 1970 and at that time it was nothing more then a used secondhand Gibson. Mark Mariana thought it was from 1954, but in fact it was from 1957.
I personally emailed with mister Peter Frampton. My first question to him was . are you certain that the lost guitar was a 1954 Gibson ? Because we found a 1957 guitar. And he said yes i could be one from 1957.
In that time (1970) nobody bothered with dates.
If you look closely at the pictures from that time you can see that the last three inlays are different
Just as a 1957 one should be.
But wait a few weeks, and all will be clear
