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!
I cant imagine Les Paul wasting time razor checking a guitar.
Burning it with a hot screwdriver, yes.
Don't think he much cared about the look or checking, just the sound.
Look at the rest of the guitar, it is a train wreck,
Razor checking it is something that would have never crossed his mind.
I say pull out the condiments and start eating.
I wasn't implying that it was Les who did said checking...
If anyone can show me another GT with similar checking then I'm all for it. The 30 or so I've played certainly didn't. Neither do the 20 vintage Gibsons I currently own, and neither did the other 15 I've sold over the years.
