Works for me. If the coloring on my screen is reasonably accurate, it's got REALLY nice fade going there...

Re: My new VOS Bloomfield Les Paul #043....

just a quick question how did all the different knobs end up on there, is there an official story to that? I would guess that he wasn't all that caring to the guitar itself (more concerned with sound than looks) but talk about full end of the spectrum, reflector, top hat and speed knob.

Very nice top and burst! How's the neck on the MB Les Paul?

That fretboard needs some Fret Doctor!
