    I like the idea of that book, and I have a copy. However, I'm pretty disappointed at the level of the photography and/or the reproductions of the images. I find many of them very grainy and the colours are overblown. Detail (like grain in the tops) ends up being lost.

    Just got this wide flame R9 from Daves Guitars in Wisconsin. Gibson calls this particular finish 'Codyburst'. That works because my dog's name is Cody, so that's a good name for this Les Paul.

    I've posted this elsewhere, but this top had so much going on, even the plain spots have some character. First pic, real color. Second, a lil photoshop makeover.

    Wow I just spent the first hour of my Saturday morning reading through this thread and drooling all over myself. I guess I should get to work the machines are calling, cycle start buttons are blinking and I'm ready.
    Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my morning laziness I'll pay the price and get home late today.

    It was worth it, Great thread, great reading.

    The basic photos of this important & excellent thread are not appearing. It would be great if the OP could find another (permanent) photo host. Thank you!

    Photobucket went from a free host to a paid for service.
    I'll work on it.
