  1. Here you go: Lp Proto 01 Lp Proto 02 Lp Proto 03 Lp Proto 04 Lp Proto 05
  2. I'm gonna scan it, so you can see. :)
  3. The Les Paul Legacy Book 1 reveals a lot of details about the Les Paul guitar genesis with tons of pictures and geek details. According to this book, the neck pickup on Mary Ford's Goldtop was a DeArmond Gretsch Dynasonic. D'you have links of the vids you're talking about? Here are some pics for reference, that shows Les Paul had several prototypes he mod. BTW, In the same book, there are some pictures of one of the earliest LP prototype with a different neck joint and a florentine cutaway.
  4. Sometimes I whish I could live in America. :( There's so many good guitars there...
  5. Yeah. Unlike most people I know, I admit my very first criteria for gas is the look of the guitar. I don't need a 3hb guitar. But I really can imagine me with the white custom. Go figure. :) Besides, though it's an excellent idea, I couldn't use the rotary pot.
  6. You're right. And again I think you were right before (with the youtube vid :D ). It won't break just like that anyway, even if adrenaline on stage can make you do things you won't think you'll do.. anyway. I came too late on both SG custom auctions, and they both been sold for 1500€. So now I'm holding my breath until another good price shows up. (Damned!) Besides there's a neat Ebony SG3 for sale at a decent price. Apart from the standard finish and the rotary switch, I can't see any other major difference with the custom. Do the Custom sports Honduran Mahogany ? BTW, I've read most of the pages of this topic trying to find answers, and I've seen the sg3 singlecoil routing picture. It has a long tenon (that still differs from the 60's SG Custom wider long tenon) and it is routed for humbuckers (or it does really look like it is), so mduke22 should be able to mod his guitar to 3HBs with no harm :)
  7. Hahaha! harmful effects of a camera...
  8. According to the 'warning' friend, it's all about the neck joint. Anyway my gas is stronger than advices. The problem is that I have no choice but buying one online. It's not the kind of guitar you see here in shops.
  9. I'm gasing to death for a White custom, but a friend who knows a bit about guitars - especially those you bring on stage - told me the SG custom is probably one of the most beautiful Gibson model, but also the most breakable. He also told me the last decade models were built stronger. Any thoughts?
  10. Thank you guys, now I'm seriously in the market for one. Anyway, I was wondering if there always been long tenons on SG Custom. There's a 1987 and a 1998 ri for sale, and though some would'nt care about this, I do, in a crucial way.
  11. Haha yeah that's what I love about alternate tunings. It also forces me to play sort of out of the box and ditch a lot of my boring old ways of playing haha.

    I have a class today but when I get out I'm gonna try out DADGAD. Thanks

  12. Thanks again mate!

    the tuning is: DAGDAD

    With this tuning you can pick wrong it will still sounds cool ^^'

  13. I checked out some more of your YouTube videos. I love the Art & Lutherie open chord noodling video. What tuning was that? It was great.

    In my last band we had a song in sort of an open d tuning. I don't know what it was called but if you strummed the strings open it would be a d minor. I also just recently tried open g and that's pretty cool too.

  14. I'de be glad to listen to them anyway. :)
