• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I was surprised to see this old thread still going. Here's a picture of my '55 to '59 conversion that started the thread,but with a new finish and inlays from Kim and the new crew at Historic Makeovers.

Hey Philb, I am actually thinking of buying your old guitar from a guitar shop (small world!). Just wondering if we could connect some time tomorrow over email to chat about this guitar - mainly want to know why you sold it all those years ago, if the tone and feel justify the $18,000 price tag, and if you have any advice for me before I pull the trigger.
