If you had asked me a year ago I never would have thought I'd want to own an orange LP...but something happened to me...the more I kept looking at these R0s at CME...the more I started to love this Orange Lemon finish...so I finally got my very own.

It is a 2020 NAMM show R0 that I bought from CME...8.34lbs...This guitar rings and sings!!! Slim neck at .82-.91....which I have found to be a joy to play and no issues switching between this and my chunky 57 Ri LPC.

Sorry not the greatest pics. Has a fairly light fretboard...but I dunno I dont mind the color against the finish on this one.

It came with a crazy high setup with the tailpiece raised a mile high...but once I removed almost all neck relief and drop the action nice and low where I like it (3.5/64 Low E and 3/64 High E) it was instantly playing fast and smooth and intonated perfectly with new 10s.

The Custombucker PUs sound fantastic to my ears...very dynamic. The Neck PU is so lush and creamy...and the bridge roars .

Took me a few days of playing and agonizing a bit over a few drops of superglue that I accidentally spilled near the lower strap pin...but I am over it.

What a joy this one is :)

A 60th anniversary 1960 Les Paul. Wow. Very nice!!! If you feel someone living vicariously through you, that is likely me. I will try to keep it down.
Oh, probably a stupid question, but what is "CME"?

Love the colors & grain pattern on the back.
Fretboard looks pale for a Custom Shop guitar.
Must be how it is now.
