Well, I know.
But do you?

Here's you chance. Kudos points to the person who gets the closest and if you get it first go you get the title of "Les Paul Living Legend" (at least for the life of this thread)*

One thing, this is a genuine Gibson Les Paul, not a fake/replica/copy.

Good luck kiddies. :fingersx:

Goldtop and a red back?

Must be some kind of Slash sig.

If not.. It could also be a Gibson Custom Shop '60s LP goldtop with red back. But modified with other tuners, pickup rings, other pickups / pickup covers removed, other knobs and switch plate removed

LP Std Goldtop, opposing zebras, red back (2012?).
But some s.o.b.'s gone and wrecked the tailpiece. :D
:dude:

Presumably some sort of signature, which is why we don't get to see the headstock(?).

60's tribute. Darkback stripped, maple edge painted and clearcoated. But not before pups re-routed and buckers installed.. Stock grovers...

That looks like the new Slashamassa model! I didn't think they were out yet!

Reminds me of Joe Bonamassa's Les Paul. (Image from his twitter.)

My first thought was that it looks like a Standard Faded with a refinished top. Looks nice, whatever it is.

Looks fishy to me. Maybe a re-badged epiphone? will need more pics.

Why is the jackplate into the binding?


This is how it should look.
