• 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!

Some cool burst shots I've come across of Willy G and Pearly circa '80 really showing off that maple top...

Interesting how the top photos show her as a darkburst, and how she faded dramatically in the next photos... Almost makes you wonder if she was left outside in the sun for a couple of days at some concert, etc. The rev seems to look pretty similar, so it doesn't seem like a lot of time went by proportionately...

It's just stage lighting. Note on the faded shot his beard is gray, on the bright burst shots it blonde of brownish.
