I believe I played that very guitar you have there once... Your brother is a very good drummer as I recall.
$2800 is a low price for if it is in good condition, I have seen one go for $3800 that was in excellent conditionA lot of guitar for that money IMHO.
I am obviously extraordinarily biased, but I have never played a Les Paul that was as sweet playing as my Artisan. I have never owned another LP, but I have spent time with easily 100 over the last 40 years including the 59 burst owned by the guy I bought the Artisan from and an R9(with a $5900 price tag) during my one and only Guitar Center adventure this spring.
Those damned cork sniffers lied to me?!People need to get it through their thick skulls that there are good and bad guitars in every year from 1952 to 2011! Only by searching, holding, feeling and playing can you ever make a judgemental decision. Anyone who says otherwise is a bloody fool!
One piece body. There are some places that it almost looks like a seem, but that is finish gooping caused by a plastic back guard that I had on it for a while when it was new.It's nice to see something different here. I don't see a lot of these on this forum.
Since this was the top o tha line at the time, does it still have the pancake body? Or was this more of like a custom shop type git?
Did you perchance own a white Les Paul with a Floyd Rose back in the day?That is post-pancake era for sure.
I don't or have not worked at Steam. I do shop there and used to work with your drummer brother waaaaay back in time.
In fact, you were the one who let me play it.
