    Not a Gibson, but an Asian husk done as a finishing exercise to attempt a Pearly Gates style burst.

    Avatar is 2010 Gibson Les Paul Standard. BB Pros, Assymetrical neck, locking Grover tuners, extra large tenon, chambered mahogany body, plek-ed, locking Neutrik jack, custom made solderless pots, TonePros locking bridge and stop bar, AA Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish. Not a very traditional LP at all! It plays very nice and has a cool tone. The tone was the reason which made me decide to get it, after I played it through a Marshall.

    Oh and pickguard off is best for tonez(until I decide to put it back on, in that case pickguard on will be best).

    I guess I never thought of it from the other side... I'm so much like him IRL that he's kind of my hero. Like me IRL most people have never heard of him or remember him by name, some even if they HAVE seen the movie.

    My 2 cents! :laugh2:

    Mine started life as a CS Standard. I went through various phases with pups covered vs uncovered. The picture in my avatar is probably almost 15 years ago. The guitar had a bit of the clown burst thing going on but after 13 years, and having the intonation fixed the first time, it looked like this:

    [​IMG]

    Although the guitar would now intonate, the tech who did the job was sloppy and the plugs he used to relocate the bridge were visible. So I decided to have it fixed right and since I already had a faded lemon LP, I decided I wanted a Darkburst.

    Someone on this forum recommended a very reasonable tech who supposedly had done "hundreds" of LP refinishes and vintage restorations. I decided to give him a shot. This is what he sent back:

    [​IMG]

    Aside from the 70s cheap Japanese copy burst, he wired the controls backwards and screwed up the bridge placement so it wouldn't intonate at all!

    I was about to dump the guitar when Kim at Historic Makeovers was finishing up my second makeover on one of my other LPs. Kim is always up for gear stories so I told him what had happened. He told me he could fix it all and make it look however I wanted. So I sent him the guitar and pictures of the Dutchburst. Here is what Kim sent back:

    [​IMG]

    In this case, the guitar looked exactly how I wanted it and the bridge was finally located in the right spot and the repair was invisible! Needless to say, I am back in love with this guitar and will not be parting with it. It is probably time to update my avatar. :hmm:
