• THIS IS THE 25th ANNIVERSARY YEAR FOR THE LES PAUL FORUM! PLEASE CELEBRATE WITH US AND SUPPORT US WITH A DONATION TO KEEP US GOING! We've made a large financial investment to convert the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and now have to move to a new host. We also 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!
  • WE ARE MOVING THE LES PAUL FORUM TO A NEW HOSTING PROVIDER OVER THE NEXT 5-10 DAYS. We will experience downtime during that period. Please be patient and have confidence that we will return! Many thanks, Mike Slubowski, Admin

Ok, I am blown away by this one...it popped up on Fried Okra's FB page today...a '55 LPC that has been heavily modified...to be more like...a Gretsch? Painted F-holes, stripped natural finish with interesting inlays, including one on the side (!!). I only have these three images, but it seems the fretboard has been swapped too...I gotta say, I kinda like it. :cool:

Ok, the photos are showing up now!
WOW! That's a fun one!
Love it!!
