• 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!

Two Conversions...

Who did the burst finish cause that looks wonderful (as does the gold top but I guess that'll be original!)

Two more Frankensteins. Is the off-centre seam Sophie or Phoebe:ROFLMAO:
Off center is Sophie.

The first owner was originally going Goldtop/Darkback (it had a bad refin when he got it), but once the flame was exposed, he switched gears. If I was doing it, I’d of went heavy aged Goldtop so the gold would hide what you shouldn’t see, yet still showed flame.

They may be “Frankensteins” as you say, but they both stand up to the real deal.

I am sure they stand up to the real deal, as they should. They actually are the real deal (vintage Gibson) with different makeup and jewelry.

Nice guitars! 🤘
