    Thanks for all the wishes from Les Paul forum friends.
    Tom is a good man and a professional Les Paul collector. Thanks Tom for his willingness for selling his love to me. I will take care of Sandy forever.

    Btw, I will take more photos of Sandy and share them here when I am back to Taiwan.

    Any of us who own guitars are just caretakers for them until the time comes to pass them along to somebody else.

    Taiwan is officially the "Republic of China", and not to be confused with the "People's Republic of China"... although reunification is probably only a matter of time as resistance is futile...

    Re: Sandy heads to China

    I've been fortunate enough to have spent a some some quality time with that guitar and can report that not only is it incredible in-person, but it's also an amazing player. Easily in the top 10 bursts I've had the pleasure of playing in terms of being a spectacular playing and sounding musical instrument. That guitar has it all!

    I'm glad to hear both parties to the transaction are happy! Congrats to you both.

    Congrats on the sale and glad Sandy has gone to a good home.
    Question: 9-1981 is my all time fav burst, does she sound and play as good as she looks?

    Tom, should you ever sell “G.I. Paul” I want a stab at it! Two of my close friends owned it before you and it might be like coming home for them...
    Thanks my friend! Amazingly generous of you to sell Sandy. I’m sure it wasn’t an easy decision to make!😳

    Selling Sandy was a tough decision, but selling G.I.Paul would be even tougher. It has been my "player" since 1980, used on almost every gig. That's a connection hard to break.
    Still, I know where you're coming from.

    Such a stunning, unique guitar.
    Mason must be a very happy man.
    Maybe he'll bring Sandy over to Hong Kong to visit.
    (I can always hope.....)

    I'm not sure if those are the original pups for Sandy... thought I read they were replaced somewhere along the line...

    Mere speculation:

    I have heard that when rewinding Fender bobbins the bobbin is held by a pin at that location.
    So … rewound bobbin that was made to fit the convenient winder?
    Old photos of Jeff show it with a double black in the bridge.
    Somewhere it changed before I got it.
    The double zebra look has been a cool thing for decades.

    Re: Sandy heads to China

    Thanks for that info Tom and you’re right, originally it had a double black bridge w/zebra neck ...Jeff had removed the covers after getting it from the original owner.
