Holy moly! So recently I had to sell off part of my collection to buy a "holy grail" amplifier. Part of the sell off included my Custom Shop R8. Once it was gone, and the amp was acquired, I really wanted a Les Paul (for me!) again. I state for me because my wife took "her" ebony one and put a lot of hot pink on it - pickguard, poker chiip, knobs...... so while I have been playing it, I wanted one. I told the wife I wanted to keep it cheap because of the amp purchase, and tried to find a studio/tribute. Well, this fell into my lap for $1300 - and it was quite easy to say "YES!"

I bought it literally sight unseen, just heard it was available, bought it - and got it - and this was it.

This is my first time playign a deluxe and it is quite an incredible guitar. The minibuckers in this, I don't know if they're stock or aftermarket, but man do they roar. I love it - and for $1300 - I love it even more! It even has a little flame to it!

Ahhh yes....commented on your amp over at the MF.

You are having a very good week for gear, Congrats!

Your Deluxe looks very similar to my 2004 model I had. But that has Seymour Duncan minis in it- if you pull them and gets some pics of the bottom we can probably interpret the sticker codes for you.

Man, you scored one of my dream/grail guitars there. I've been looking for one that clean, in that finish, for a while now. Lucky man.
