So I'm sitting here at work and looking at The Les Paul Leg... and I came across Albert Lee holding Eric's 58' custom.
Any one know how this guitar was weird?
Stand Custom way or something different?

And any one have more Pic's
Where is the guitar today?

pu sel up=Neck
pu sel mid= middle & bridge
pu sel down= bridge

I'm reading Tony Bacon's Million Dollar Les Paul, and there's quite a bit of text on Eric's Customs...and Albert Lee's, and James Patrick Page's...etc.

Some bloke named Wittrock is quoted in the book as well...:hmm

I am pretty sure Albert Lee now owns the 3 p/u Custom. EC gifted it to Albert.
