• 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!

My brother made me do it...

Dave said I had to buy this guitar or else! Can you believe this was a downgraded top? It sounds as good as it looks.

It is 8 2809 from Dave's. It is an Authentic. It isn't the most featherweight, but it hauls ass tonally. Steve and I were in the back room with the amp blaring, and generally annoying everyone at Dave's. :lolspin

It may not be the lightest LP around, but, from the looks of the picture, Steve is a big dude. Seems doubtful a few extra ounces would phase him.

I like the looks of that one Steve.

Especially the way it looks in the picture where you are holding it.

Congrats on the new purchase and welcome aboard!

Gee, it makes me want to get rid of my GT for a burst sooner than I wanted to.

Very Nice! :dude

Am I going to have to be the first one to say "Minnesota Burst 2"??

That top is stellar. Looks nothing like the pic on Dave's site. Even the cross grain is cool. I'm afraid to hear it! Excellent score!!

Can't believe that was downgraded!!! Tater, has said you are a dangerous player so that is what the Nader Top reference is to, that and the downgrade.

Still makin' pedals Steve???

Thank you everybody for the nice comments. The guitar really kicks ass! A few ounces more doesn't bother me, it is the tone that counts. Big Al, I don't know if I am making any more pedals or not, it is just a hobby for fun.

BTW, I think this guitar was mis-labeled as a washed cherry, it really has a beautiful ice tea color burst on it, really not red at all. It looked like the other ice tea bursts at Dave's. The picture I took for Steve is way too red.
