My cherry burst standard was stolen so I bought a honey Burst traditional. Next thing you know I walk into the pawn shop and there's my cherry burst. So now jamming two Paul's, each has their own distinct tones. Loving booth!!
I just saw that you asked about the prehistoric. It was on consignment at 12th Fret in Boise Idaho.
I wouldn't even bother asking about it though as the guy had it WAAAAAAY overpriced at $5,699.99.
The seller actually took it back but I am sure the owner could conect you two if you were Slash looking to pay anything to get a mid-80s prehistoric back. Ha ha ha.
I have just finished reading the thread when you describe your CNC Les Paul build
First thing I would like to say is THANK YOU ! It adresses a lot of issues and will probably save me quite a few head scratches. I would like to ask you how did you obtain the data for CAD ? there a way I could perhaps buy them from you, since you were the one sharing info on the forum?
I am quite convinced that the Gibson truss rods always have been straight and NOT curved. I made the truss rod in my bass curved, but straigt in my guitar. The Straight rod worked better, the curved type required far nore tension.
