NGD!! '58 Les Paul VOS in "Bourbon Burst"

Well I'm a very happy boy with this awesome plain top '58 that Mark from Mark's Guitar Loft sent me.

This is an '09 weighing in at 9.0lbs with the 50th Anniversary changes. I love the neck on this guitar!

The fretboard is Madagascar Rosewood.

This guitar has a huge sound to it.

Mark was excellent to deal with, great prices and man does he know how to pack a guitar for shipping.

Here's a few pics...

Congrats on your beauty.

Pic four shows her off so well. Have you got out the polish for that one?

Busted!

I used some Virtuoso to remove some of the VOS gunk.

I think I'll have to try and get Virtuoso direct, because I haven't found a source in the UK.

It may be just the lighting/camera angle etc, but the first pics simply don't do her lovely colour justice.

I ordered the polish direct from Virtuoso.

Bourbon Burst is definately a chameleon when it comes to changing colour in different lighting!

Your R8 isn't too shabby either!

I'm having trouble putting mine down as well, so much mojo!

Quote from Mark's Guitar Loft site:

The new 2009 changes include an ABR-1 bridge with no retaining wire, just like the originals had, only better - the saddles don't fall out when the strings are loosened. Other changes include a single-slotted pickguard bracket screw and a coarse knurled switch nut, like the originals had in the late 50s. Other changes include a more correct top carve, '50s wiring, new volume pots with improved taper and rounded neck shoulders.

Also a nylon nut.
