    Here's my 2007 Edwards E-LP-98 LTS in Vintage Honeyburst. Nice fat neck, superbly crafted and plays like a dream. I plan on a pot change; can't deal with the crazy rolloff with the stock pots. I'll be putting on Historic pointers at that time as well.

    buckwild: Joe, that is spectacular!

    Here's a group shot. The Edwards and the Tokai LP Special are on their way to new owners. Got the 335 clone from my friend buckwild! All are really good:

    Thanks Hank! She sounds and plays even better than she looks - which is always a plus! The top on your Tokai standard looks amazing!

    My 1977 Greco Les Paul Standard. EMG 81 and 89, Tone pros bridge. This is my main guitar, and it is amazing. Don't care that much for the dark green color, but this guitar ROCKS.

    WS - great looking axe - I like the color! The fact that its your #1 and you have a Gibson Custom really speaks volumes!!!

    Yeah, I love my 77 Gibson LP Custom.... but the Greco plays and sounds just a little bit better. And it weighs less to. And the Greco with the all mahogany body is a bit warmer.

    Yes it is. Very nice bridge, although I had to MOD it a bit. I cut grooves in the back area to help ad string tension across the saddles.
