    burstheaven

    I'm going to start a tradition on this forum that I'm actually stealing from Tom Whitrock. Wanna give the man his due, he does know his bursts. Each week I will be posting a photo or series of photos celebrating those beautiful vintage Gibson Les Pauls built from 1958 to 1960.

    I will start with a gathering of vintage Bursts. Just think each guitar in this picture is worth at least $250k !!

    I call this pic BurstHeaven !

    Probably because you didn't buy one when they
    were at semi reasonable prices. Mid 70's around $1300.00.
    Now they're crazy ridiculous.

    Good time for a new thread. I'll have a few question for everyone
    pertaining to this.
