Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
Who's going to Fort Worth next weekend? Oct 3-6, 2019.
I'll be there in my booth [TW59] and I will have a couple of Bursts to check out.
I am also bringing G.I.Paul, and maybe CDaughtry will bring Fun Gus for a photo shoot. :ganz
See you there!! :salude
The 1956 Gibson catalog showed the Goldtop with the common "strings through the bridge", but the Custom was top wrapped!
What I also noticed was: The neck pickup has mounting screws in the corners.

Last Saturday at Rockin' Robin Guitars [Houston Texas] a ghost was spotted playing the original Goldie, 9-0629]!! :ghost:
Photo by Liz, and it looks like the ATC is watching [closely :ganz]. :salude
Did they buy out Southpaw Guitars?!? l:rofll
Back in the early 1980's this Burst became the benchmark top that all other Bursts were judged against. From several sources, most notably the cover of Tom Wheeler's American Guitars and the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, it was well known and loved.
9 0913 ... The Brock Burst! :salude
Here's a really nice photo [from Vic] of the PAF equipped Les Pauls from the 50s era.
That beauty in the middle used to be mine, and is the flamiest Burst I ever owned.
Vic has shared so many great photos over the years, and this is another example. :dude:
