I don't see the point. If that is what you want, Gibson did that "style" better. Only an opinion though.

Very, very cool guitar. Wiring and switching would make or break it for me, but I love the look.

Dolly Parton says that people used to make fun of her hair and makeup and call her names... today, she is one of the most revered people alive for her goodness and positive spirit.

Gold hardware used to be in fashion and will someday be back in fashion....

If you love her and you don't see the buckteeth, who cares what we think?

I like theme guitars and it carries the Les Paul Custom theme all the way down to the mahogany neck. I find the bling a refreshing change from the "I just pulled up the floorboards in the milk barn and made a guitar out of it" look so many seem enamored of. Hopefully the pickups sound better than the modern wide range humbuckers they are styled after, it does call them PAF's.

Here's the other one I really liked. There was also a Stratocaster done in the same appointments as a '61 Les Paul Custom.

europe endless
25.5" scale with buckers - nope
middle bucker - adds nothing and gets in the way
coil splits - coil splits don't sound like singles, they just sound terrible
bigsby - not particularly into it
cheekiness of looking like a les paul custom - too novelty
