    WTB: 2007 Les Paul Classic Custom

    Thanks for the info. I could have sworn I saw a couple pictures of wine red ones. They must have been later models with dark rosewood boards. I'm still mainly interested in white.

    WTB: 2007 Les Paul Classic Custom

    Looking for a 2007 Les Paul Classic Custom with ebony fingerboard. I prefer Alpine White, but will also consider Wine Red and Black. Must have Ebony fingerboard. Will pay top dollar for the right guitar. Let me know what you have. Thank you.

    What is this written on the inside of my control plate?

    Have you been recording and touring with Elton John for the past 50 years?

    You should sign them "Mudface". That will cause more chaos 30 years from now. "Hey, I bet that belonged to that guitar player in Mudface". It was used to record their hit single "Pass me the soap".

    It would be really cool if the guitar ended up belonging to the Joe we all know and love, but there's also the possibility that it belonged to some guy named Joe Walsh, who was in a band called Lucky 13. There are quite a few bands called Lucky 13 right now and I bet there were plenty of them...

    My Jauce Experience - Use at your own risk!

    In conclusion... Do I regret using Jauce? No. I feel I still ended up with a pretty good deal. Definitley better than I would have got if I found one on eBay or from a Reverb seller in the US. Will I use Jauce again? Maybe, but it will have to be a really special piece, that I just can't live...

    I'll give FedEx credit there. I had a couple deliveries recently, where the driver called me while he was standing at my front door. Once, while I was in the basement and the other while I was in the shop. I caught him both times, but never thought to ask what he would have done if I didn't...

    If they have stopped requiring a signature, it would be nice if they stopped telling customers that they do. I could have worked Friday and made some money, instead of sitting around losing money. Sorry to hear you had it so rough with Covid. I had it back in July and was lucky. My only symptom...

    My Jauce Experience - Use at your own risk!

    For the record, my guitar wasn't shipped in a giant box like zombie posted. The box was slightly larger than the guitar case, with a small amount of foam on the top and sides. Nothing at all on the bottom. I thought for sure it would be damaged. DHL is one of the most incompetent companies I...

    In summary: The price of the guitar was $2010. The total cost to get the guitar to my front door was $2695. That's if no more mysterious charges appear.

    Well, hopefully this is where the draining of the wallet ends. The actual duty charge was $169. DHL charged me $17 to pay the duty for me.
