Flight of the Bumblebee.

Sure someone can play this better than me, but I'm quite proud of it :D ....

Gibson Moderne Build

I have wanted one of these for years and finally decided to build my own after the success of my '58 Les Paul. Great guitar to play, real RnR, plus it's light...!!

Re: Who has the White LP?

Had an Epi LP Custom a number of years ago and it was a superb guitar (MIK).....Still, I ended up trading to the one in my avatar which is the best Gibson Les Paul I have ever owned to date (my '04 Custom Shop Custom).
