Been a while....hope everyone is doing well! Trying to follow along the @toomanycats saga but I need to find the beginning. I’ve also got to get going on some of these stale guitars I’ve got sitting around and move them to a new home! Especially after this purchase, with which hopefully puts in my hands a guitar I can call my own, my own unique calling card, if you will. Obviously it’s a far cry, but something to the like’s of Jimmy Page’s #1, Slash’s Derrig, Adam Jones’ Silverburst Custom. Alas my ego will not rest until I have my own Les Paul to call, well....mine!! Lol It’s on its way from Mother Russia. Not sure when it will hit the shores of the USA. But I have some plans for this one! I already purchased an SD Super Distortion (no pup cover) for the bridge, and an antiqued gold SD Whole Lotta Humbucker (bridge) for the neck, which I will install with the bobbins towards the bridge, to get some Peter Green/Page tones. I may replace the electronics as well. I’m going to put a poker chip on it and maybe even the black pickguard. I’ve been eyeing these for quite some time and it seems quite a few have rosewood fretboards. I’m happy this has ebony, like a true LP custom. Supposedly it weighs 4.5 kg (somewhere around 10 lbs). It should have some sweet vintage mojo kicking around. More pics when she arrives!
