The Les Paul.

This iconic guitar has always been identified with legends. In its millions of production, reincarnation and duplication, it has been recreated, renamed and copied.

Let's pay tribute and share our Lesters on this thread, post what you got, any brand that bears this iconic shape belongs here.

2011 R9

"Don't look at it!"

I just can't get comfortable playing Lesters but an R8/9 is the guitar I most yearn to own.
I'm so conflicted. :eh:

1) I'm sure you meant R0

2) Have you tried playing it standing up until you're tired and drunk and leaning over? It's quite comfortable when the heavy guitar just hangs in space and you play it and it stays where you put it.

3) just get an SG. Or 3.

1) Not an R0. Can't abide skinny necks.
2) I'm always tired, drunk and leaning over.
3) I'm a large, ham fisted oaf and SG's are so delicate.

Thanks! I bought this in 2013 when I was working in Singapore. Shipped it from Ishibashi and came with classic 57's. It's quite light around 8lbs, lightest Gibson LP I have ever owned. Comfy neck and really sings. Now has a pair of Wolfetone pickups - Marshallhead neck and Timbre Wolf bridge in cream bobbins.

The above photos does not do much justice though. Here's an iPhone shot with the flames under the melting sun:

that's gorgeous Molly, that amber tip will look better IMO. :moresarc:

P90's on LP's have a different level of bite and grit, and they are mean and raunchy, I like them!

go on then, I'll play.... here is my 95 Classic PP with A+++ top and stuff. I've owned it for 12 years now and though I've thought of selling a few times, I've never quite done it. This is before I fitted the calliper :D

Must be nice to be easily amused. I'll edit this one a couple of times so you can piss your sides.
