• 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!

Collecter's Choice "Donna" has a double carved top?

the point being nothing more than a joke ..meaning that you requested the pickups a certain way and Gibson didn't comply ..however, if Clint Eastwood had owned Donna and were denied the same request that may have been his reaction ..that is why the "Clint to Gibson" was typed below the picture.

Tom just clarifying as we are in triple negative terra with this comment-

Original Donna has out of phase pickups

Gibson was NOT going to replicate and you said Don't Not replicate? and they said no?

or was it that you said don't replicate and they said no we weren't gonna anyhow?


wait... now I don't even know where I am :##

Tom what happened?

Let me try to make this clear.

Donna has the pickups out of phase.
I did not want this feature copied. Neither did Gibson.
So, Gibson and I agreed .... they should not be out of phase. Instead, they should be in phase.

It came out as we both wanted. :salude

I thought the Donnas were just amazing. I'm a big fan of oop pickups and have flipped the magnet on most of my Lesters, but not all. It is easy enough to do and I think Gibson and Tom made the right call.
