Gawd damn that’s a beauty! Man if you sell it to get a braz I might have to call dibs. In the meantime congrats and HNGD!!

Still trying to find the time to play it as I’m traveling too often.
I have to admit it has the best feeling neck and weight out of all the guitars I’ve owned before. The flame on it seem monster but it’s more towards a vintage style flame (can look plain or pop out)
I’ll do a proper review and comparison when I have more time

Gotta be honest...one sunburst LP usually looks a lot like the next to me...I like them, but I can't get caught up in the minutiae...but every now and then one really grabs me...and that's it.
Beautiful guitar.

Curt at HOG was patient enough to help me try a boatload of them until I found the one that spoke to me:
Southern Fade finish
Peek a Boo squiggly
flame
8.0oz (7lbs 14oz without pickguard and medallion)
Rings like a bell
Monster Vintage Mojo!!

Gorgeous! Congrats.

HOG is where my latest came from . Those guys get some really nice Lesters.

Yes seems like HOG has been my favorite to find the “keepers”. Not everytime, but much more than other places I’ve bought from
This new 59 is awesome...although I slightly prefer my new Brazilian

Yes, that's atypically light. But wow -- visually, it's about as beautiful as they get, to my eyes.

Thanks for the compliments
I think I’m resolved to selling unfortunately simply because it sounds very close to my Brazilian and almost looks the same too!

Before posting on reverb, anyone interested in a reasonable offer? Not sure where to post gear to sell otherwise:dunno:

Put it in the classifieds here, but you have to post a price, not just "offers".
