WOW:eek: I wish i could afford all those straps.................
That hopefully shows that he's actually playing them. Awesome pic - if we get any damn sunlight here, I'll try and take a pic of my babies. Haven't done one in a while, especially since I added Mr. Shanks!

Very nice pic of absolute beauties! Hope your couch is stable though :)
2 remarks imho:
- missing P90's ;)
- you top wrap but not always? What's your preference and why?

yeah if that couch wasn’t stable things could’ve gone real bad,

I typically top wrap. To me top wrapping makes for a slinkier feel. The guitar on the far left is 60th anniversary R9 that I just received and i believe the strings on it are factory,

Yeah, I’m going to try and get a vintage goldtop for my P90s guitar. Mind you this Not because I think it would necessarily be better tonally but because I’d like to own a piece of music history and an original guitar from the golden era of Gibson.

Idk, maybe not, regardless I do think the photos are pretty cool.
Anyway this is my little collection of Historic Les Pauls, let’s see yours.




Very nice! Which is your favourite and why?

I like them all for different reasons but my sentimental favorite is the True Historic all the way over on the right.
it’s been my go to beater ax for the past few years.

Because of the heavy wear, I use it as my test guitar for everything from pickups and caps to Grover Rotomatics. I must say the Grovers and OX4 low output winds were transformative and the guitar just plays better than ever and sings. it also has that broken in feel that fits me perfectly well, because, I broke it in.
