Lovely guitars. Does the lifeson have the awkward volute placement?
Thanks very much Spb.

Yes it does, but it doesn't really bother me. What really bothered me is that Gibson blamed Alex for it, saying that he approved it the way it was. They're the ones that made the mistake and they should have owned-up to it and fixed it (there were only 300 made) at their expense, but... I used to live in New York and I should have sent it to member Freddy G., but now that I'm in Florida, that'll likely never happen.


Thanks again and :cheers2:

I'd love to own a real vintage '58 Les Paul Junior.

Something like this:

Are the student/entry type models of that period as collectible as the bursts? Or could you actually obtain one for a reasonable price?

Wow. Cool. What's the story on that one? And why a '68?
Every time I hear one it sounds good, haven't heard one in person though. It would also be cheaper than original bursts If I ever get that sort of money. There's a guy who compared all the Les Paul Standards from 1952 to 2008:

The 1968 sounded best to me! Although it's a little annoying because he doesn't compare the neck pickups.

As for the buckethead signature, I'm intrigued by the large scale length and large body, I think it sounds great, listening to his performances as well as others who own it:

Well, there's no way I'd ever be able to get my hands on this one and it would have to be from his Humble Pie days:



Of course, I'd take it from the way it was in the '70s too. I'm close though:





I do have two other ones though.

My '08 Alex Lifeson "Inspired By" ES-355:



And my '14 Wes Montgomery L-5:

I built all my dream guitars - mostly from existing market offerings. Here's to you ;-)

This, but take the "signature" by the neck joint off:



I love Les Pauls (it's why we're here, right?), especially white Customs (JDB is god). I'm also fond of semis, having had an Epiphone Dot with Bare Knuckle pickups in it for over a decade. This brings both of those things together.

I wouldn't mind one either:



Quoting myself here, but I just happened to think about this; if I remember correctly that's the exact same guitar. Mr. Farner gave it to Steve Marriott I think somewhere around 1970?
