Another, “HAND PICKED”, Custom Shop Les Paul. I’m a 45 year expert on Les Paul’s and LOVE these reissue guitars. Being accomplished pro player I literally go through hundreds of these and pick out one or two of the very best playing and sounding. Having owned and played many original “Bursts” over the years my ear knows what to listen for in the selection process. I don’t care about the colors or the tops because everyone has their own tastes and so I concentrate on the most important aspects, TONE!
It’s a 2016 R 8, exceptionally clean, med chunky neck, minimum fret wear, and “real” looking flame (many of these look totally fake) sounds great through just about any amp there is. I’m using old Fenders and Marshall’s.
The guitar weighs 9 lbs., 1.4 oz.
