Hey everyone, check out the link above to read a very fascinating "story" of how some of the coolest guitars around are fabricated ! Maybe this could help someone write some articles in the GMC-wiki thingy, who knows. Maybe somebody's already posted this link, I just thought it could be fun and helpful to read ! biggrin.gif

I own a 58 Les Paul Custom Shop Reissue. It is pretty incredible. Thanks for this link, great reading as I own one.
Other Les Pauls are fine, I also own two Studios, and really play them mostly (I concern myself with all my cats, and dog, with the 58 I have to be more careful, so more often I pick one of the Studios). But the 58 really plays better, there is a difference. Three times the price difference? No. But there is a difference. But I am always satisfied with the Studios.

I'm glad you people liked it ! I might consider getting a Gibson Custom Les Paul, but it's pricey, and I need many guidelines before doing anything like that... I guess I'll get it when I earn my own living ! biggrin.gif Do you people know what kinds of designs it's possible to have ? I mean paint-job and such... biggrin.gif

Thanks again for the positive comments ! biggrin.gif
