    Hello everyone! My name is Phil from NE Ohio, I've been playing for around 18 years (you'd think I'd be better!) I got my first Les Paul, a 1978 Les Paul Standard (gasp! Norlin) in 2002, and have been in love with them ever since!

    Thanks man! They're Imperials. I refinished that guitar (it was a pink color originally), and wanted to play it at a St. Patrick's Day gig, so I just put it together with hardware I had lying around. I'll probably put gold klusions on it, or possibly sperzels.

    I'm hoping to sand the bogus Gibson logo off the headstock, and get a flame veneer to dye green to match the body. It also really needs a refret. It was good enough to play at a short gig, but I'd never keep a guitar as poorly setup as it was.

    I found it at a pawn shop being sold as a real Gibson. I brought a real Gibson in to show him, and the dood looked embarassed. He gave me a great deal on it.
