    one piece tops

    I've always loved one piece top Lesters. Does anybody have any idea how rare a one piece top is on an historic Les Paul? Any R-8,R-9 or R-0 with a piece top out there? I'm curious, and what's left of my inquiring mind wants to know. Pics would be cool too.

    stop tail ES135

    I've been playing this ES135 for quite a while now. Over the past year or so it's become my go to axe. I have been thinking about putting a stop tail on it for about the past 8 months or so, but since it has a Balsa block in it I was very hesitant about do this. Well I finally came up with an...

    bet my warranty is void now

    My '06 R-0 has reluctantly reliquished it's fingerboard and neck. I guess this qualifies as a project x guitar. It was interesting removing the neck. I havent done this in probably eight years, but it's like riding a bycicle. I must say the ugly glue that you see squirted all over the inside...

    Question about R0 VOS

    I have an '06 R0. Almost all of the R0's I've seen have highly figured tops and a very thin neck profile. The only other plaintop I've seen is a darkburst. My guitar came with a "Gibson Custom" black case with the dark red interior, not the Lifton case. It came with all of the case candy...

    what color is this?

    I recently bought this '06 plaintop R0. It came with all the hang tags and COA but the model number wasn't filled in and the serial was scribbled in with a pen, not stamped. I'm not sure what the color is. Anyone have a clue what the model and color is? I think it's a LPR0 VO tea burst. It...
