    I can't let mapleflame have all the replica glory:cool2:

    Here's my '59 replica, complete with old growth mahogany, pre-ban braz board, hardrock maple top, hide glue throughout, condomless vintage-style truss rod & route, Dave Johnson's inlays, Wolfetone Legends (double whites) with DMC covers, Allparts Japan vintage cream pup surrounds, Fake 58 switch, bees, knobs, tip & jackplate, Angel Parts switchring, Historic guard and TR cover, Pigtail ABR-1, and a top bursting by Dave Johnson.

    I can assure you that the sound is greater than the sum of it's parts :dude:

    That's gorgeous!!!!! :applause:

    The specs sound like mine, minus the Braz board. I can only hope it turns out that nice.

    The headstock was done with a 50's MOP Gibson inlay and with the correct style "Les Paul Model" silkscreening. No "Gobson" here ;)

    I'd be happy to discuss any specific details that you'd like to know.
    If you want to discuss the builder and my experience with them, then perhaps we should continue the discussion via email or PM. I'd be glad to fill you in on all the details.

    Yes Flick, that's a Historic guard.
    The (proper) colour of the pup rings highlights clearly the pinkish tones to the current Gibson plastic.
