• 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!

The bomb !!!!

What are the pedigrees of the Les Paul and the amp?

Yep.. Heading to the Bona-seum. Special thanks to ATC, Mike, Charlie for finding it and Joe Menza for loaning me the cash to buy it. The seller wanted cash only like an old school New York Guitar Show deal. I'm excited to meet when our tour goes thru Houston!

Charlie found it, Joe. I deserve no credit for the find whatsoever - was minding the LPF booth. I just controlled myself so that I didn't drool over it. :)

That was one was clean tweed....I'll post my own version of this photo when back home. Joe, I'm sure you'll enjoy the piece...and it would be cool to hear your views on its sounds once you've had a chance to play it.

Those are metal truss covers that could be engraved with the owner's name. They are rare, but I have seen at least ten over the years.

Thanks Tom - Are these TRC genuine and would have come with the guitar or an after market cover :hmm

They are apparently aftermarket, although I need to confirm that. I remember once seeing them in a general wholesale catalog, and I have never seen an actual Gibson connection. Yet, they fit the Gibson truss rod cover screw holes exactly.
And, I have only seen them on Gibsons. :hmm
