Probably the best Les Paul ever made. LP Standard appointments, ebony fret board, Tim Shaw pups, 3 piece top, one piece back, the prettiest tobacco burst and under 9 lbs. I’ve been playing this guitar for 25 years, it was made in 1987.

There Is no “best Les Paul”, but this one plays and sounds fantastic. FWIW, it apparently got a fret dressing at Folkway 20 years ago ( I don’t remember), other than that I’ve only changed strings. It’s a super reliable (late) Norlin treasure. LP Studio Standard.The tuners were changed before I got it, very stable.
Very nice. I'd love to find one.

I have spent so little time with this fairy recent build. (Summer-ish)
I had gathered parts for a few projects kind all at once. Not on purpose, but things I wanted (later) came up for sale. In the end, I assembled 3 really nice guitars in a short span. The Pink Nightmare HH Strat, the Charlie Christian Tele, and this. Fender MIM Sonic Blue body, Warmoth rosewood Boatneck, and Vineham Dippers. Plus a custom harness a buddy built.
Get this, I literally haven’t played it in months. I pull it out of the case and it was in tune. I’ve been playing it for 3 days, and haven’t tuned it. I’m not using the whammy at all, but still!!!!

Friday saw a very rare outing from under the bed for this mid 70's EDS1275 (note the brief period shorter 12 string headstock same as Lifeson, Felder). Serial # incomplete and not definitive in that era. Pots date to Dec 74. Volutes with 3 piece maple necks.

Forgive the crap pic due to blue stage lighting. Coincidentally when I bought this it'd been unprofessionally sprayed blue, including the pickup covers, plus lacquered control cavity. I left it with a luthier mate in Vancouver as a restoration project. Not being a priority there was no rush (pun intended). Then in 2018 a mate asked if I'd play a Zeppelin show so I rang my luthier mate to get it ready. So 16 1/2 years after I dropped it off I got it back for the Zep show. The T Tops are fab especially with the 500k audio taper replacement harness.

Neil Diamond show. He had several guitar players live so being just me it's justified hehe.
