    Early '70's LP special, partially hidden by the Vibro Champ. I gotta find that truss rod cover!

    I am a Tele man but I do love Les Paul's for comfort and slightly shorter easier playing scale length. My next build will be a Mahogany bodied LP from GuiatarAust. com.au with a maple top- cost $450 AUD. I'll apply a claret red stain to the body and neck then get Mick Brierly to make me some p/ups. All up should be about $700 AUD for quality woods, reasonable parts and Mick's p/ups.No prejudices as a LP is as good as you can get.

    Did you buy that Vox in the Pinkburst Project auction?

    I ask because I know where the AC-15 went (Jay Jay French bought it), but I often wonder where the rest of the gear went.

    Thanks! This one is actually an Iced Tea burst. The camera changes the colors slightly. When I bought it, I was torn between the honeyburst and the iced tea burst, but this one ultimately won out and I love it.

    I have a LP with a Fender scale neck, and one single coil in the bridge, does that count? :lol:

    To be honest I prefer them to my Teles. In fact just swapped one of mine for another LP. A heavily modded Catalina

    2-ish

    All 3 of these were made in 2008. The strat is American Standard. Tele is American deluxe. The LP is a Traditional Plus, in Iced Tea. Not pictured is a Godin Icon 2, which has many similiarities with the LP. In contrast, the Hiwatt in the background was made in 1979.

    I have an Iced Tea burst but oddly enough I find myself using my Tele and my SG for almost everything.

    Guilty: '00 LP Classic Plus modded very close to '50s specs. I've also owned a '93 LP Special and a recent '60s Studio Tribute. They've both been traded for better Gibson style guitars.

    I have this 2001 Epi Custom. I've only used it on 2 gigs, but enjoyed them very much, especially though the Twin Reverb. I've never been a Gibson player and it feels so much different then my Fenders, it doesn't get much use. In truth I'd have to leave my Fenders home and just focus on this guitar to be comfortable. Basically, I use it when there is a room with a loud buzz where single coils are a liability.

    I still like to have it around though and it's quite a nice instrument...purty too!

    '99 Smartwood Les Paul in the Peroba top w/ gold hardware. Got her in 2000 for $600 w/ Epi hardcase. Deal of the century. This is pic from seller, I immediately took off the pickguard. No other mods, never had a problem.

    Hardly ever play her with the CVs getting all the fun...

    Never fails to amaze someone who's never played one. Sounds like the sweetest LP you've ever heard but light and oh so comfortable to play.

    And that neck is just awesome.
