• 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!

Be patient! Kim and his guys I would imagine are taking a few days for the Holidaze we have. It'll be worth the wait. Did Kim have his guy take some of the shoulders off of the neck? That's the thing that's bugged me about Gibson's stock neck shape..
They've done 5 of my guitars! Money well spent and worth every cent!

Yep, I think that's a standard procedure during the makeover process. Just got a mail from Kim, seems as if she's almost done :peace2

Very nice!

If it was possible to get even more excited than I already was about my Christmas present from my wife, this did it. I have one there with Kim now that's just starting the process!

Oh boy....This winter is going to CRAWL by! :wah

Beautiful guitar! You are going to love it, I'm sure. When you get it home you'll notice even the smallest detail has immense beauty (I know, I'm still discovering the details in my HM).

Before the HM it was a beautiful guitar, but afterwards it seems to be just porn!

How does the HM procedure affect the sound of your guitar. Does it change somehow?

Good question.

Not scientific, but, my first impression when I played mine was that it was louder.
food for thought...
