• 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!

Gorgeous!
Those almost look like teething marks, above the rear p/up and by the selector switch.

Tom , if I am seeing this correctly why by the poker chip ?

Because a coil cord was contacting the finish in that location while sitting in the case for a long period of time.
Same reason the coil cord marks are elsewhere on this guitar. I suspect the cord was wrapped around the guitar in some way.

No, that was 9-0913. Known as the Brock Burst.
Tom if I ever came into a boatload of cash I would offer a crazy amount to buy the Brock Burst because ever since I got the Tom Wheeler book that burst has just turned me on to no end and still does to this day .
