    Howdy.

    I got my first Les Paul in 1974 - a used 1972 Custom Black Beauty. My oldest son made off with it a couple of years ago so it's still in the family, just not at my house.

    I played through the early 80s and then life got in the way. Now that I'm semi-retired, I've taken up guitar again. Since the '72 lives in Atlanta now, I found a couple of others to replace it. I first got a 2010 Studio that someone had put a decal and metallic lacquer on. Still debating on what to do with it but the price was a steal.

    Just yesterday I picked up a 2018 Les Paul Goldtop Tribute. It has the same slim neck as my '72 did so it's more familiar/comfortable to me. But I'm wondering what year this is a tribute to. Any ideas?

    Anyway, thanks for letting me join the forum. I look forward to learning a lot and contributing what I can.

    What he said! :photos: or it didn't happen!

    :welcome: to the forum! The guys in the Les Paul section will get you squared away on any questions you have concerning all things Lester!:thumb:

    Be sure to stop around the Backstage for a round or two of lunacy while you're here! :dude:

    Sorry for the delay. I can't figure out how to post pictures from google drive so I'm doing it a different way. .

    1972 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty - I got it used in 1974.
