    Les Paul Studio refinish.

    I started this refinish ages ago, it must be a couple of year's back, so for one reason or another yesterday I thought Id pull it out of hiding and do a bit more. What really happened is that I had seen a s/h LP for sale locally and due to my hesitation in making the call somebody beat me to it...

    If only Gibson were a family business...

    Veneer and binding question for LP refinish?

    Hmm..I had thought about the trying the routing process to add binding to a LP Studio along with adding a flamed veneer top. Ive decide the routing (for binding) is way outside my skill set,so Im looking at an alternative. I have a tatty neglected looking late 70's early 80's (?)LP standard...

    £149.000 Les Paul spotted at a guitar show. UK

    I had the pleasure of visiting a guitar show in the north east of the UK today and spotted a Gibson LP std (58 I think?)for sale for £149.000. The stand it was on had a Music Ground sign on it. I did think that if we sold the house and bought a tent to live in,I could have bought it. :)
