    I recently visited the historic makeovers web page just to find the most perfect and beautiful Les Paul, if you know who the owner is and it's history please share.

    Hahaha.

    I love Kim posted HD images of it and I can see it has all the perfect parts, every plastic and metal is just perfect.

    The color is the best unburst I've see.

    While that is a beauty, there are plenty of stock Gibson Custom Shop RIs that give you a nice figured top and dished at that. What you won't get unfortunately is the double cream PUs! Those dc's (on Ops post) look great to me beside the PU rings and guard.
    Mine's not as flamed but it is nicely dished & this baby is stock other than my setup!

    You mean it's the one that looks most like yours, but even better, right?

    Not my cup of tea.

    great guitarp KenG, yes you guitar with the same hardware and plastics could be as shocking.

    But I,m wondering about the finish, the color. Your guitars has the same lemon tone as mine, but this one looks different, more like real ones do and the flame is very different then most I've seen in this section of the forum.

    Well i thought so too, but, its is a reasonable price for what you get, almost a new improved guitar IMO.

    If you loo ate the results its well worth it, besides you have 3 options to choose from.

    The owner is someone VERY famous, who's identity Kim asked me not to share, but you'd be surprised if and when someone let's the cat out of the bag.
