    What i love most about that first one,the 59, in EE's pics...is that the wood looks like an old maple picnic table.Weathered, rugged, coloured by wind and weather. Since i'll never be in a position to own one(had one shot at it in life,in '81 for 1400$...a 1960 LP,and passed it up,out of ignorance)...i'd settle for a custom made tele. It would have old barn wood for the body...and a roasted maple neck, capped with rosewood or, ebony fretboard.

    Well... not a Les Paul, but it is a Gibson, er... The Gibson. 1918 L-1. She’s got some pretty bad scars, but the old gal still sings and plays. Neck is a like V shaped tree with frets.

    It doesn't look like that in person, nothing weathered about it.

    Thanks!

    I'll get to that eventually.

    So what's the definition of "vintage"?

    Can I bring in my '88 & have it keep company with all of these beautiful guitars?

    The name and subtitle of this subforum might answer your question. :dunno:

    Go right ahead though. :beer:
