Sorry for the delayed response...I haven't had much on-line time over the past few days.

It's a well documented...

...born overseas.




And before anyone asks, this will answer your next question (you can tell it's a fake because the script is a decal, rather than a silkscreen):

I don't see a problem with that headstock. That is as authentic as it gets.

It's definitely you...

Yeah, you could be right. When I first listened, I missed what he said he was running it through. I have a bit of a stumbling block, listening to Les Pauls through Blackface/type amps. :##

Blackface Fenders are pretty much the ONLY amp I've been putting my 57' GT through lately. :)
My 18watter gets NO love anymore...lol
Even though that clip was recorded just with a video mic, it captures the essence of that early PAF tone IMHO. I was amazed how similar sounding that 58' GT is to my late 57'.
