• 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!

Happy Burstday Richard Fortus

How strange there are 9 pages of waffle on another thread from a bogus member, but no-one has anything to say about a real burst.
🤔
Maybe if Richard Fortus himself would post about the guitar...
For the record: Nice burst!
Also: I have never heard of mr. Fortus, am I missing something?

Wow, beautiful un-burst!

Hopefully the new owner will be able to play that gorgeous Les Paul daily, and maybe even knock off some of that shine. ;)

That is the read deal and what a beauty of a nicely faded early 60 ? As I am guessing that it was before the Tomato was added to the burst recipe and this one has nicely faded to a lemon burst . Such nice figure and color and I bet she sounds the best !!!!!!!!!! Good For you Richard Fortus clearing out gear to fund the purchase of this most beautiful burst !

Im not faulting the tenon Richards Burst .

Although Internet Kool- Aid Breweries would sonically claim foul inferior, The short tenon is a major weak link in the tone chain . BS I say .

Very nice guitar & Richard is a great player he will bring the best out of this Burst !
