Thanks Pappy, she's lovely! Merry Christmas to you and your's as well!
You got carpet? Wow you must be rich.Well imo anyway! Sung to the Christmas melody. The baby is a 2013 LPC that my wonderful wife bought for me for Christmas in Dec 2014. To me it the most wonderful guitar there is and felt the need to show it off, as it was 4 years ago today I found it under the bed.
I wasn't able to get much out of Gibson on details, but someone had to M2M this one or it came from a small qty dealer run. It's almost more like a dressed up Standard.
Maple Top (Original LPC's were 100% mahogany)
2x Custom Buckers.
Neck Profile = Slim C
It also came original with a Nashville Bridge, Speed Knobs and a USA circuit w/ 300ks
First thing I did was gut the circuit and replace it with a 50's setup and PIO caps and ditched the Speed Knobs for the reflectors and changed the bridge to a ABR-1 w Conversion studs.
Last but not least, although I usually prefer "pick guard on", removing the black one from this was a no brainer. This top pop's, and once I had it off I just couldn't put it back.
Anyway it being the anniversary of the find I thought I would clean er up and thank the wife again. It truly is the gift that keeps giving. And it truly is the most wonderful Les Paul in the world ...at least to me.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Darn i need a man like your wife. Nice present.
WOWSERS. Seeing that Beaut againThanks everyone. . My wife is indeed a wonderful person and my absolute crutch of life, literally. @moreles , I agree. I was stunned by the burst on this thing the first time I opened the case. It's almost like someone walked over to the R9 line and stole a top. Came in a Lifton style case w/COA and candy... I was shocked when I first saw it. ..the color changes under differently lighting are crazy..
