This thing just turned me on. I just couldn't resist it. All of my guitars are pretty cookie cutter mainstream, and I wanted something a little more unusual for some reason. I sort of wanted a guitar that had been modded so it would be different but not ridiculous. I'm 47 and pretty conservative. . I bought it from an awesome TGP member in the Emporium. I will report back tomorrow on how she feels and sounds. I love guitars and to me they are instruments but also works of art........ Here are some pics and some of the spec info from the seller's listing. Many of you will recognize it from the Emporium. 2006 Gibson Les Paul Studio with custom finish and all black hardware (except tuners)...all mods are brand new (done within the last week), and include: (1)Brand New DiMarzio 36th Anniversary PAF Pickups (2)Brand New BCS Les Paul Wiring Harness with Switchcraft jack and 3-way toggle (3)Brand New Gotoh Black Tune-O-Matic Bridge and Tailpiece (4)Brand New Rosewood toggle switch made by John Guilford The color is a burnt-orange/copper/metallic finish that is absolutely stunning...the pics do not do it justice! The original owner told me that the body is a one-piece slab of mahogany, and it resonates like one for sure. It has a very snappy, vibrant acoustic ring, which is one of my highest criteria when choosing an instrument. Guitar is fairly light...I would guess-timate around 8 lbs, give take a few ounces. Neck carve is very comfortable not too thin, not too fat.
