    Re: Eric Stewart's Les Paul 'Custom'

    Oh my goodness what have they done to this Les Paul . What is the Fender looking back plate cover for or what is underneath it ? A Varitone switch in the tone control position for the bridge pickup , talk about customizing a Les Paul and the trapezoid inlays on the rosewood fingerboard with the Super 400 style split Diamond inlay on the headstock . How and why was this made this way ?

    Re: Eric Stewart's Les Paul 'Custom'

    A quick interweb perusal shows that he was with 10 c.c. and wrote "The Things We Do For Love", and co-wrote "I'm Not In Love"... two very, very excellent pop tunes. Co-writer of "more than half of McCartney's Press to Play. Nice, and I've never heard of him either.

    Reboard, looks like the inlays from early 60's SG's. Man this guitar has been a modder.

    An earlier incarnation in the hands of Graham Gouldman? Is that a pointy horn I see? Have I posted it in the wrong section?

Odd duck for sure, Floyd Rose or something similar not a cam Kahler, for sure. I see it was pulled? Still scratching my head over the listing. The guitar is what it is but the item description wrong and misleading. I don't find much accuracy in the mods or the attempt to sell it.

    What an unique history and cool tale though. Interesting guitar that's been there and done it.

    Kahler’s don’t need a rear route.

    They didn’t use that kind of locking nut either.

    Story. There’s got to be a story here.

    Anyone???

    Re: Eric Stewart's Les Paul 'Custom'

    Why is the back of this LPC not have any binding could this be a LPC neck on a different body ??

    The more I look at this guitar the less value it has , really IMO a player at best !
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    It's not a Les Paul Custom, it is a Les Paul "Custom".

    Tom, it was the original ebay listing and the descripton of the guitar, which is no longer for sale, found by clicking the see original listing link. Posting my opinion regarding the guitar which was linked to the ebay listing in the op nor my opinion of the description of that guitar in the listing and subject of the thread is what has been done on countless similar threads.

    I named no one, I did not post a link and I will not delete my post. I still fail to see how any of this is spam as nothing is for sale or being offered and every ebay listing has multiple other items offered by multiple sellers just like the ones appearing on the page linked in the op, none of which were discussed in this thread.

    The link inside the quote on your post #10 is still there. It has nothing to do with eBay. It is titled 'happy wheels'. I can see it right now.
    Again, nothing to do with eBay.

    AND, I did not suggest you delete your post. Just edit out the offensive link.
    Please go back to post #10. If you don't clearly see it. I can't explain it. It is still showing on my computer.

    My one track mind was on the thread topic and I thought the quote was in reference to the odd discription quotes I used in my reply. Never even considering the actual Reply with Quote I used for context and the link within!

    I could not understand where the spam was as I thought it was my post, not the nimrod I replied to. Doh!! Removed link.

    Re: Eric Stewart's Les Paul 'Custom'

    We have to take it on faith that it's a 54 that's been modded, at this point. But the single ply binding, on the front only, rosewood FB and trap inlays all fit with that. I have to think that the headstock is grafted on. There's no "3rd pickup" (don't know where the seller got the idea there should be). You can see the routs in one pic for the humbuckers, so it's credible it was born with P90s. The base of the PAF shown looks super clean for a well played guitar, thinking maybe some kind of reissue pickup? And yeah, the tremolo had to be one that required springs on the bottom of the guitar, so Floyd Type seems likely, and there's a whole lot more routing underneath that plastic cover. Since a correct 54 is still less than $30k, and a 53-54 modded to burst specs would be more like $20k, I don't see the value in this guitar. But it's kind of a fun puzzle.

    Whats to like ? Really just because it was on stage with a X Beatle ?

    If this is a vintage guitar of some sort it really would have very little value IMO If any !

    Really? Does this not look like the exact same neck on this pointy horned 70's Les Paul in the hands of his fellow band member?
