3XL Les Paul


Recommended Posts

Either this is a really big Les Paul or that's an awfully tiny guy.

Maybe I should order one to find out which is which.  I hope it doesn't come with one of those super heavy Costa Rican cases, I'll have to put wheels on it and drag it behind me, I won't be able to pick it up.

Silverbursts are cool looking, but the whole AJ thing sort of killed it for me.  His signature LP CUSTOM (not Standard) went for CRAZY money...  Either way, I agree with @kidblast - creepy stuff there.  Are these Standards going to be more expensive than Slash's Standards?  Didn't check price before submitting this thread reply - and not going to haha!

I scoured the interwebs, and concluded that Adam Jones is 6', 1" tall. 

I can also say that the Adam Jones Les Paul Standard is the same size as any other Les Paul. 
(As opposed to something like the unusually-large Buckethead signature Les Paul.)

So. 
It seems like the photo there is a matter of the camera angle, camera lens, or some clumsy photoshopping job.

😐

Buckethead plays a baritone guitar I believe.

His illusion must include being double jointed. His right arm is close to his body going all the way down then all of a sudden these large old ‘the thing’ looking hands are holding the guitar ten feet in front of his body.  Neat trick.

It must be a slow news day, I can't believe I'm doing this. 

I had my bride take a photo of me holding my Les Paul, in roughly the same position, angle and distance from body as the artist in that photo. 

He's 6' 1".
I'm just 5'  9 1/2"

I can't be sure, but that factory image is photoshopped in some crazy fashion for maximum guitar presentation. 

Okay, I'm gonna shut up now. 
😑

Also, note that it could be the type of lens the photographer used effecting the depth of field.

I know what you mean but that would affect focus, not the apparent distance from hands to body. 

But even with a wide lens, it wouldn't make his right wrist look dislocated.

I think you may be surprised what a professional 4x5 portrait camera can do with a good lens.

I have one of those. I know how to apply the movements too.

If that photo was taken with one of those, I'd gladly show my a$$ on the townhall steps.
