    NVGD: 1956 Les Paul Junior

    I drove about an hour each way yesterday afternoon and this followed me home. It's a 1956 Junior that's been around the block a few times. Lots of play wear as well as a repaired headstock break.

    Hi Everyone! I just completed a very fun journey that I wanted to share with you all. Knowing that I would (probably) never own a real 'Burst, I wanted to get as close as I could....and that meant going the conversion route.

    My First Historic Makeover

    ok so i've been pretty skeptical of this kind of thing but the truth is i've wanted a beat-up goldtop for a long time, and there ain't no way i'm shelling out $12-$15K for a '68 with thick cutaway binding lol. i love my 2010 R6, it was my first Les Paul and it sounds just killer. not a...
