    After years of being Les Paul-less and stalking this forum, I finally decided to treat myself. New 2016 Traditional. Luuuuuuuuuuuv the neck. Now my other geetars get no love. The pick guard has since been reinstated in it's rightful place. IMG_20171125_205957542.jpg

    I have a 2017 Traditional in Honey Burst and I feel like I really lucked out on it.. it's amazing. Hopefully you'll enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine!

    My last one was a 2003 standard, also honeyburst. I made the mistake of letting that one go....not this time. Thank you for all the compliments.

    1978.
    Abused.
    When I got it it had been modded to lefty!
    Stinky as hell. Yellowed. Smoked! (cigarette).

    Had a new bone nut installed, new saddles, refret.
    Every time I have played it live, rockers and guitarists have gone nuts.
    It's a Rock Beast!

    Pickups tend to squeal if not careful. Her only drawback.
    I would like to find a cure for that.
