1995 Les Paul Studio wine red with gold hardware. Got this guitar back in 2007, had it for 11 years, got it completely stock and did many different mods to it over the years, creme plastics, all sorts of knobs, different pickup combos, the latest being Sheptone AB Custom pickups, Bourns 500k pots and PIO caps from toneman. Put countless playing hours on it and quite a few scratches and dings along the way. Had a headstock crack that was professionally repaired that never budged (originally bought it that way). Workhorse killer guitar that played and sounded amazing with the sheptones. I traded it a couple years ago for a 2017 Traditional, which was a nice guitar. Was happy with the trade, but always wondered where the Studio ended up...I've had a few Studios since then (newer models, 2007, and a couple 2013s) but they didn't last long because they didn't even come close to my 95. Well, to keep the story simple, the 95 resurfaced again quite locally and is back with me. Exactly the way I left it, too, which is nice. In fact, I think it's the same strings from a couple years ago lol.
