• 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!

The ones that you will take to the grave?

Which are your "take to the grave" guitars? Gibsons...

These will need to be pried from my cold, dead hands.

Post yours!

All of mine are. It's hard to say no sometimes, but I don't buy it if it isn't a keeper.

This '63 SG Jr. in polar white was my "take-to-the-grave" guitar.

Until I sold it.

Fortunately, this '04 LP Custom (SG) is helping me get over the loss.

My R6/R7 Makeover. Refinished and relic'd by Gord Miller in 2009/2010. Equipped with vintage parts, including PAFs. I can't imagine letting this guitar go:

My 1980 Firebrand SG. I've said it before, I'd be living naked on the streets before giving that guitar up.

For Gibsons?

This 1960 ES-345:

This early dot-neck L-10:

And my conversion, which I like a little too well:

BTW, Elliot, are you expecting to have to fight zombies in the afterlife, or is your idea of hell being in a KISS cover band?

Going to be hard to get me to part with this '60 Burst, but never say never I guess!

My people don't believe in an afterlife, but my idea of hell would be living in Canoga Park.

When the Messiah comes the dead will once again walk the earth...So should I take my R8 with me or store it someplace?
