    Warming up on my old beat up Standard. Anyone else have an old beat up Les Paul that is their favorite?

    I want to see more of your Standard, I bet there's more of those lovely scratches all over the place.

    She’s irresistible with great character. She sounds as good as she looks. Love to hear her crossing that bridge position.

    Oh what a fucking delight!

    Have any of you ever stopped and simply appreciated the amount of Les Paul history in this joint? There's literally millennia worth of mahogany and maple over here. I mean just look at that Goldtop...

    That's exactly the guitar that got me hooked on Les Pauls! In 1979 I played a new GT Standard and fell in love. Unfortunately it was wayyyy out of my price range then. Fast forward 25 years and I purchased my 2004 R7 and all is good. :cheers:

    Here is the bridge pickup. I used it to demo this pedal I put on eBay.

    Wicked tone and distortion. You’re hell of a guitarist! Totally enjoyed your choice of songs Van Halen, ac/dc, the cars. Sweet dude thanks for sharing :cheers2:
