• 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!

How about a little vintage Fender love?

Wow, those pups are way down on the deck on the bass side!

Adore Shoreline Gold...and yours is in great shape! Tried to find a clean and guaranteed original (lots of counterfeits out there), but no luck.

Guessing you don't use pure nickel strings, which seem to require bringing the bass side of the pick ups more in line with the treble.

Took a couple of photos with newer iPhone of my 1964 when I took her out to play this week at BBQ Bar Jam:

One guy in the audience asked, "what's up with the translucent pick guard?" and, "Is that an old one?"

So much for not being a Strat man, as I decided to announce in this thread a couple of years ago.

My early '64 refin back to original Fiesta Red. Everything else on this guitar is so clean.

I love that fiesta red!

My latest build is very similar. I used a slab-board with a two pat. number decal!

Oh - I recall that one. I thought you meant you were building a Strat with two Pat No Gibson pickups :##
