:0 your vintage sunburst classic is older than me!


Those are all beautiful (as I’ve probably said a million times now). Love the vertical grain on that R9


Sometimes I suspect that they choose the nicest guitars to export

My favorite Les Paul ever since I bought her in '83, a Guitar Trader "pre-Historic" hand built to 50s specs from select wood. Fat neck carve, long tenon, very light & lively. She's thirty-five years old now and has a lot of miles on her, with battle damage to match. Still an amazing axe to fly. One of a few lifetime guitars that I wouldn't ever willingly part with, along with one particularly sweet '63 Strat and a '49 Gibson acoustic with the best feeling neck I've ever played. I named her Amaterasu after the Shinto goddess of sun and universe.




Here's a pic that shows off her top a little better. But really my love for this instrument is about the way she plays, and a sense of rapport that's developed over the decades.
