They made this guitar in '16.  And if I'm not mistaken, it did not come from the Custom Shop, it was a USA guitar.  I think it looks bada$$.  It's called the Les Paul Fort Knox.

I remember that one.  It had a Fort Knox Pricing on it too with  real Gold in the finish.

You know you have a nice guitar when people are ogling at it's back.  I like the Custom dressed top with the unbound back.  Very nice.

Speaking of, I won this at an auction, very appropriate for what you are proposing.

Thanks guys! Things are improving at such a rapid rate, guitar, refrigerator, running water, all within the last week! 

 

Here's another photo of it hanging on the wall (although I apparently am not able to save it as rotated correctly). It really is perfect. I chose chrome over nickel perhaps to give it a 70's vibe and the shiny chrome is so killer I think so I am a very happy camper (albeit I am no longer, camping more like glamping lately).😄

Is the volute an option that you selected from made to measure or did it just come with that? Out of curiosity did you order in 2018 or 2019?

I ordered it in 2019, around the beginning of March. Honestly I don't remember if the volute was optional. I asked for the Modern Axcess  as a Gold Top and asked for the 60's thin tapered profile neck. They said they could do it and I don't remember if that was optional or not.

 

Honestly it is hard for me to get through a work day lately. Like Todd Rundgren I don't want to work, I just want to play on Les Paul all day.
