    I had an all black with black hardware version of that shredder model when I was in high school.

    I framed these three Les Paul ads for my music room. The first two are from the '50s and the other is from the late '60s.

    That kent model and the base model is expensive and was back then. They are not student models. They were the pro models.

    I know .. The old stuff is cool .. Innovative in its day .. Well-constructed .. Just .. Ugh ....
    < shivers > ... My very first guitar was a Kent LP copy ... Circa '75 .. And it played like snot .. And sounded like angry green phlegm .. if I had to play that thing any longer than i did I would have quit .. Thankfully an Aria Pro II happened by and held me over until i scired my 78 Washburn Falcon .. Just the word "Kent" induces a shiver and bad memories

    Seeing this on the wall of the mom & pop guitar store where I took guitar lessons made me want a custom SO bad.
