• 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!

Whoa! What a great looking guitar... vintage black gibsons are the the coolest!

Reminiscent of Glenn Frey's 'Old Black' although his was a Jr mod'd to 2 P-90s.

I dub thee 'Olde Blacker' 🍑

Would like to see the serial number and face of the headstock. I've seen a few black Regular/Standards over the years.

It appears that there was a batch made in 1957 - my guitar is sequentially one serial number digit down from another example I located online… it also appears that Mr. Bonamassa has a black special single cut - anyone know any details on it?

Dang your guitar is CLEAN!

Another cool custom finish one doesn't see often on the SC is the Cherry. Tom (Whittrock) has one...well, did a few years back.
