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!
Ok guys ..I found the one image that I had saved ( second down, guitar laying flat ) ...looking at that pic, to me it looked like the tp had a lower profile than typical and perhaps used to have more down pull when top wrapping ..errr, obviously I was wrong when looking at the other photos..must be just an illusion
The stop bar does appear to have been shaved down. Likely to give a little more angle since it is adjusted down to the body. Perhaps it was taken down a little more for the heavier strings to give them a bit more angle, making it look "compensated" in that photo. You have a good eye to catch that it was flattened!
