    wow thats gorgeous. What classes as "a steal" exactly?

    And why Duncan Alnico II's?... how did you decide on those? I've tried so many PAF clones and such but would like something a little hotter for my SG. May have to give em' a shot.

    Cheers mate,
    Xan :)

    Just curious, what's the difference between this and the Les Paul Custom that's made in the custom shop?

    Thanks for the compliments, guys!

    Yup, like dani said, it is the VOS/Historic spec. This guitar is basically an R7 Goldtop without the maple cap (Customs are solid mahogany).

    Having played several LP Customs that were regular production I can say the difference between regular production and VOS/Historic is stunning. This guitar just feels so much more solid and "toneful". I think the big, fat necks help with that a lot. There is simply more leverage for bending strings and more to neck grab hold of. I've really become a fan of fat necks lately.
