Exclamation worst guitar mod ever

Hello. I found this picture on another forum. This destruction was done to a '59 Les Paul. If it were a normal Les Paul, it would be fine, unique, ect. BUT A '59 LES PAUL! this guitar would be worth hundreds of thousands otherwise. i wouldn't buy it for ten bucks




Opinions on the funny lookingguitar and the creator's sanity are encouraged

Re: worst guitar mod ever

I'd buy it for ten bucks, then send it to BCRGreg for revival.

Heck, I didn't even want to drill holes in my Black Beauty to put on a Bigsby. WTF was this guy smoking. Reminds of the thread I read of the dude who wanted to lighten the load on his LP by drilling 1" holes in it. ha ha

Re: worst guitar mod ever

if i remember correctly, that guitar has since been restored to a state that it is close to the original way gibson intended it to look.

Re: worst guitar mod ever

Yeah, there is a history on that guitar. It has been bandied about before on this and other forums.
I've heard there has been more work done to it on the restoration front.

Re: worst guitar mod ever

I've seen this before--but when the mod was made--who knew how much they'd be worth?

I'd have bought it at its worst for $10--no problem--then fix it up!
