    NGD (kind of) - Pearly Gates HM RDS with ORIGINAL 1957 Les Paul PAFs (pre-sticker, steel covers!)

    Thanks, yeah the HM team did a crazy good job. Even the back of the neck is checked as well and actually feels better/sticks less than a basic gloss. With that said, the TM-aged axes that I've had over the last several years have been pretty great too!

    Thanks :D I got lucky with the pair that I've got as they sound night and day different to any others that Ive tried before. Maybe it's the steel covers or idk... Maybe that's why George Gruhn said the pre-sticker, steel cover 57 LP PAF's were his favourite sounding as well. I think the biggest...

    Thanks! yep, got a 1959 bridge on the way. I played around with a bunch of caps, these sounded the best. If I ever come across any others might try them but it sounds perfect as is so not actively looking for more.

    I guess it's a matter of perspective :p And yes, I should've recorded the different pups. I've got some iphone recorded demos on IG but it doesnt do it justice

    NGD (kind of) - Pearly Gates HM RDS with ORIGINAL 1957 Les Paul PAFs (pre-sticker, steel covers!)

    TL;DR - rare original, pre-sticker Les Paul PAF’s (steel covers) combined with one of the first Real Deal Series (Historic Makeovers) Pauls (1959 Reissue, 2009). Unreal tone and looks! It’s been about a year with this beauty. All my other LP’s have been sold since getting this one and I haven’t...
