Wasn't as burnt as my others so I glued a chunk of headstock back on so I could add tuners. OTPG pickups and rings from my R8 that...

    Does owning a great model of a guitar make you want a second one?

    When I got my first real Les Paul it was an awesome 1969 Custom that sounded and played so well i never thought about getting another till it got worth too much to take out... Then I got the burst reissue bug! spent 5 years buying various Les Paul's and always hunting out another killer flame...

    General Vintage Tone

    Anyone heard of these guys? Was looking at PAF's on Reverb and these guys had a bunch of nice looking PAF replicas with aging and old wire and the prices are pretty high considering I have never heard of them.

    NAD-Marshall content

    It all started a bunch of years ago when I was renovating my house and it burnt down while I was broke as I had been in 15 years. Wracked my credit and lived off it for an inappropriate amount of time apparently because when I tried to get even a cell phone I needed a serious down payment...

    Flamed Flame Top

    My house burned down last year. Managed to pull this out and a few others but I didn't have the heart to really get into it till now...as found with some fun effects from IG.

    Braz R0 0 3007

    Another killer historic I bought of the forum and had no intension of selling. This R0 besides being a great player(and it has been played) is the very first confirmed Brazilian rosewood R0 from the small run of 96 actual Braz board R0's, it has a very deep and flamey chevron maple top that is...

    1998 R8 lemon burst wide flame

    This is another just awesome Historic from "the good years". I was keeping this one for my second HM as it is a great sounding LP with perfect thick wide flame and a bit of bald spots that is very vintage and looks like a plain top unless you get the right angle then BAM big thick flame! The top...
