Great old Les Paul!
Oh, that's amazing. What year is it? Beautiful guitar! Congrats.
That’s a cool bedspread. I bought a flannel shirt today on close out from Brooks Brothers on line in the same color and pattern. Cool guitar too. Way cool.
Oh my! Holy heck! Goodness!
Maple necker eh?
Ahhhh that's a sweet ol' LP, congrats!
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. It has a 3 piece maple neck. 8 digit decal SN starting with 06 = 1977. Not a fan of whammy bars in general but that's a real deal Bigsby. Not a factory install but looks like a well executed install. On one hand I'd like to reinstall the included original Nashville Bridge and posts. But on the other hand my brother says "leave it as is". My friend acquired it in the early 80's, had a Bigsby installed. I've known of it since the mid 90's. My first real electric guitar was a mint early 70's mahogany neck (pretty sure anyways) natural finish LP Deluxe. Sold that one in the 80's for needed college tuition funds. I've missed it to this day so this is kind of a sentimental replacement. Not touching anything until I get to my local music store's luthier. Peace!
Congratulations! A beautiful guitar.
My first real (good) guitar was a ‘77 Gibson Les Custom. Kept it for at over 30 years and stupidly sold it. Regretted selling it ever since. Hold on to that one, especially with some personal history.
Surprised you have enough break angle over the bridge, but then again all one needs is at least 2 degrees. Tru-Arc the bridge. Don't like it? Well, I'll buy it off ya if you don't want it...*shameless*
Hello. Did you skip a mortgage payment or two? LOL. That thing must be a beast with the bigsby on it, weight wise.
Congtrats. She is purdy!
We worked out an amicable exchange which equals two of my mortgage payments haha. Sixty-one (not quite yet) with a mortgage payment...who'd a thunk that lol.
As for the break over angle...this Bixby is a first for me. It is slight, maybe two to five-ten degrees. That's a whole new dilemma for me. Any insight would be appreciated.
Very very nice guitar. Enjoy!
