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!
I've seen some conflicting information related to the neck on this guitar. Some say Maple...others say Mahogany?
As I understand, it is a mahogany body with carved maple top and maple neck with a bound ebony board. Is this correct.
Also, what were the Standard p/u's? 57' Classics?
Picked up a smokin' 1997 R8! Nice year for tops!
Came with Duncan 59's I believe. They are going to go. Not that they are bad, but not what I want in my LP's.
Her little sister with her isn't so bad either.....she's kinda new too!
Nothing like a nice Paul!
I didn't post to the thread about the Whitford Burst's becasue it felt rather tainted. There are some great responses on there, but I took offense to some of the comments about those of us who would purchase such guitars and the generalized comments about the need for a better top.
So I traded for this '57 Junior 3/4-scale a few years back for fun. Poor thing. It had been stripped, the edges were beveled slightly, new pickguard, back plate, but the pickup and electronics were correct. It was just ugly. Had a funky acrylic nut (?). It functioned, but didn't play well...
Anyone know the year of this one. I am not familiar with the 70's customs. The control knobs and the bridge must be a giveaway.
Not mine. Sorry I don't have another picture (especially the serial #!)
