    No, I bought it. The photo is one of mine [that I commissioned].


    There are many rumors of more. I saw a "hulk" once, but never heard if it was verified.

    Usually a guitar with no parts, although I think it should also me no finish.
    In this case, virtually all readily identifiable details, like headstock overlay with inlay, and the fingerboard was missing. Old refin stripped. Very easily could have been a replica.
    But if it was, it was an old replica hulk.

    I believe the Rosie Brooks painted "Crowd Goes Wild" aka 'People Paul' is an R0.

    He is sometimes pictured with another Historic, appearing to be an R9... don't know if they've been definitively identified.

    Of course, he has his vintage '60 and Goldtop to play...

    These are perfect and I along with many, many others use them, even on Bursts.
    But you don't need to buy the beer to get them. In fact, I hear Grolsch doesn't use the old style rubber washers.
    They can be had very cheap. I sell them at the Texas guitar shows … 4 for $1.
    Email me if you [or Sir Paul and the band] want some.

    Obviously not his 1960 burst - but thought I'd share anyway.

    Re: Paul McCartney's Touring '60

    Does anyone have an idea on which LP (goldtop or burst) Paul used while recording his album CHOBA B CCCP? According to the recording notes he played electric guitar on a few of the tracks. It sounds like an LP rather than his Epiphone Casino, but I'm not sure which LP, or if one could even tell based on the year difference (57 vs 60).

    One could use dates, if they knew when Paul got his burst. The album was recorded in July 1987. Scott Jennings of Route 66 guitars once made a post mentioning that Paul got his burst in 1987, but no saying what time of year.





    There is a confirmed recording of McCartney with the goldtop from this era - his performance on The Last Resort television show in 1987. Live videos show that McCartney was playing his goldtop, but I did not include them as an example because the audio quality is not as good as the embedded video.

    As far as I know, there are 3 left handed 1960 Bursts, and of course Sir Paul already has one.

    Tom, I was just thinking "" that there are more than "3" lefty bursts all together (58-60)... 5 or 6 that we know of, other than Paul's 60.

    If you know of a 4th 1960 left hand Burst, I'd sure like to hear about it.

    As for the total, 4 are known and documented. Rumors and hints of others are out there. If you can tell us more about the others [above the 4 well known ones] please share!

    Re: Paul McCartney's Touring '60

    I thought I remembered reading a thread here several years ago questioning the authenticity of the McEnroe's 'Burst because of the split in the top seam. Or is my memory failing me?

    Re: Paul McCartney's Touring '60

    I played The MacEnroe Burst back in 1985, it had the split even then. It was less faded when I saw it, than it is now, and had both of it's pickup covers. I remember it had a burn in the trussrod cover and the bridge had been replaced. The pickup surrounds were not original either. However, with all of it's provenance, I've never heard it suggested it to be anything other than legit.

    The lefties had a few weird things going on construction-wise, I could see why questions would be raised, though. You should see the hack construction of the 1954 goldtop I used to own. But, it was the real-deal, and a tone monster!

    Re: Paul McCartney's Touring '60

    Paul does have a '59 Historic Reissue . It's one of my limited runs called the DaPra Caramel Fade . Brian Ray was the "endorser " if you will for this run of guitars I had made at Gibson Custom Shop in 2011 . After talking with Brian I asked if he thought Paul would like one of these guitars . He wasn't sure but in January of 2012 the lefty Caramel fade was produced. I picked the top to match closely to his '60. Brian said not to make it to flashy looking with a crazy top. I have a photo of Paul with him playing that reissue in the studio . I believe Brian and the guys gifted him the guitar . I never heard from Paul but evidentally he does use the guitar in the studio. Nice to know that one of my guitars is in the hands of the master of songwriting.
