There's a Gibson Les Paul model, Studio or Standard o similar 490/498 equipped and not the BFG - Goddess - JR or Vixen, with two knobs only and I think the switch somewhere down by the knobs. Not sure about the switch though but for certain a LP.

Anyone know which model I'm talking about?

Oh! I like the look of that, looks so juicy.

Edit: I think that means I need a drink of water.

The bottom part, yes, but it's the single cut model shape.

The double cut has been around since about 1958 though so is arguably a traditional shape in its own right smile.gif . Best of both worlds is to have both a LP and a double cut biggrin.gif .

If someone wanted to give me that one I certainly wouldn't say no smile.gif . My daughter would love it as well...

A classic LP is wonderful Matt but a double cut is also great Matt. I'm blessed as I have an LP and my custom is based on a double cut. Both wonderful guitars.

Cheers,
Tony

Whoa! That looks neat, if there's an Epi model with flag inlays on the fretboard and either honeyborst or goldtop I have to concider I mistakingly have taken it for a Gibson.

Thanks for your effort Smells. And thanks to everyone else. smile.gif
