Theyre all beautiful but #99 is just silly!.... that bald spot in the same spot is too cool!.... Id ask double for that one if it were mine..... imagine how much it would be worth if it was one of the aged and signed!

I was involved with the signing of the first 12 Pearly models. I have front and back shots of all 12 and can post them if you all would like to see them.
In the mean time here is a little video of the Reverend Billy G taking one for a spin.
The photos were taken the night before they were signed. Edwin had a label on each guitar's cover plate with each number which were then removed after Billy signed them.
#14 (no #13)
Billy during the photo shoot with #8 and a near group shot lined up by number. Pat is on the right blocking #2.
Awesome - nice one Ron!
It's interesting how in the head-on shots they all look the same colour, but in the group shots they seem to vary. Lighting angle clearly makes a difference!
Hi Ron - thanks a billion your contribution to this thread - it is very much appreciated...!!
And thanks to all who posted their beauties.....again- all the Pearlies are fantastic..!!!

Here's #18 (not mine). I've played this one a bunch and it is the best non-vintage LP I've ever layed hands on. I wish I had that kind of coin to afford this.

I think it's the large room - natural reverb
Very Cool, Thanks for sharing!!!
Btw, what happened to aged & signed #1? Billy's private stock?
Thanks for the group shot Ron,
I have #6 and is listed on the Historic Les Paul Database.
All of the Pearlys are just beautiful and each one has different looking flame
I am blown away by #6 and plays and sounds fantastic.
Congrats on all the Pearly owners, V.O.S., Aged, and Aged, Signed owners.
good info from ron, nice pics.
Ron, Thanks for sharing this with us man...really awesome...
Since Skhan have presented us N 18 well......
HERE COMES N 17
I have to agree thats the best non vintage Burst I have ever played.
Turn it louder please...
Hendrix is God on guitar.
Here's VOS 153 (on the left) and VOS 240 again (on the right). I picked up 240 this afternoon
Sorry - just to be clear, I don't own 2! These were both in the same shop and I picked 240 as it was better looking. Both felt and played the same, and sounded very similar.
Mine, VOS #240, has been named "Francine"
pg240 looks nice.
Cheers! She's incredible!
Now for the real Reverend Billy G experience, put a set of 8's on it. As Billy said "they make you play different". They really do as you have to really back off your right hand to not make it rattle. When I first played the ones we had for the signing I thought they played terrible. With in 2 minutes I adapted to the feel and everything turned blusey. Heck, even my manager who is a dropped D fiend was playing blues licks and he knows nothing about the blues.
Nevermind, for some reason I thought you was at the Towson md store.
