Well, luckily for the world and that guitar you will never ever own it.
Cool story and certainly a worthy player.
I wonder if anyone ever did a blacklight test to see if a finish repair of some kind had been done at some point.
You can almost hear the sustain.
The destruction of that Lp was really appalling ..
Calling it a contribution is being VERY generous.
if i would be a milionaire and if i would make my milions with playing guitar i would buy 10 bursts. but i´m not. so i´m happy for mike. hngd!
What a douchebag move! knowing there are millions of musicians starving for a Les Paul....
His burst deserves that circle or wrongness.
Mike is a nice guy and a guitar nerd like all of us. Why the hate? It's easy to knee jerk with statements like " another rich rock star buys an expensive guitar" It is a complete other thing when you don't include the decades of hard work he has done to afford that. We all work hard he just happens to be a successful musician. The hate comes off like 4 th grade playground jealousy.. Ok so now you can pile on me.
It's a Les Paul guitar. Let him enjoy it.
Hope all is well fellas. Sorry I've been too busy to check in.
How many guitars have you donated to starving musicians, comrade?
Congrats to Mike - That's a great looking burst, beauty spot & all
Sorry for off-topic but I had to post a better version of this... incredible cover of Love Reign O'er Me, followed by the aforementioned LP destructo
Video from last night. Pearl Jam at the Madison Square Guarden, w/ Cheap Trick members Rick Nielsen and Tom Petersson.
I'm with what others have said - I love that Mike buys these and actually plays them on tour for all to enjoy, which is also why I bet he don't give 2 sh*ts about the dot. Also, the LP he smashed in the "Real Me" video was not vintage, thus is now worth more having been smashed by a rock legend. Just sayin.
we need a CC of this. "#81 The Dot"
looks like all the red eye cc's I see outhere..
I've seen a few guitars where the owner glued a coin on the top. Not sure why anyone would do that but maybe that is what caused the dot?
Nice looking '59.I've always been partial to the look of exposed zebra(or reverse) coils.When i finally(2 year wait!) got some fine timbuckers for my late 80's lesters,i made sure they were uncovered zebra's
We are lucky someone bought it who plays it out,for all to hear,instead of putting them away like case queens.
Its the same reason so many strad owners loan their strads out to players.They are meant to be heard.A real shame if they are not.
Looks like it may have had a bigsby from the shadow along the bottom. the spot may be from something related to that.
No way brah. "spot", like my dog, is the only name that works.
