Modified 1959 Les Paul JR


You...modified...a vintage guitar from 1959? You sick, twisted man. What'd you do to it anyway?

I'm planning to own a Gibson ES-335 or Les Paul of some sort(Likely a Standard or a Traditional) sometime next summer, does that count?

Oh yah MR Flibble?
I'll take the '59 Jr, not keen on the others though.
What did you do to the Junior? Just updated it/fixed broken stuff or is it a proper heavy mod job?

Actually they're one of my most hated guitars, so no dice! I just don't like double necks with the 12 string on top, I need it on the bottom, and I've just never liked the red finish on double neck SGs, I prefer the white versions.

I actually would pay through the nose for a white SG double neck with the neck order reversed, but they've never made any, unfortunately. I'm looking into making a Warmoth double neck Strat/Tele hybrid in the same white/black/gold finish style instead.

Changed the bridge, looks like.

Anyway, I've got a 2008 Les Paul Standard Traditional Plus. Iced Tea finish on a nice flame top, but it really looks more like a Tobacco Burst. 2005 Lollar Imperial Pickups, RS Superpots, Graphtech saddles and nut.

It's awesome, but my camera is AWOL so no pichers.

EDIT: Hot-diggity-damn, that '83 Custom is classy.

1963 SG Standard, I've owned this guitar since 1987 and the only work I've had done to it is the pickups were repaired last year, as the coil went in the treble pickup.
The Guitar has had lots done to it before I owned it, i.e the pickup covers were removed and the cover was also removed on the vibrola. It plays like a dream though.

Not sure on the colour, could be natural or cherry thats faded over the years.
PAF pups.
Mother of pearl inlays (I believe they only used this in the 1963 model)

Life is a bullet, I love your BFG

About the LPJ, it was refinished, and given that new paintjob. The pickgaurd was removed, my dad got a new one on ebay. The wraparound bridge has been changed to a TOM set up. I belive the pots, and pickup are original. It was this way when my dad got it. Also, the tuners were replaced with Grovers.

'08 Studio!

Love it, hopefully I'll be able to add possibly a melody maker in so i can get a guitar with a single coil thats not a p90.
Lets jump in a pool

I've got a 2009 Gibson Dark Fire. Plays like a dream, and has all the modern conveniences. Just one of those guitars where when you pick it up, you know it's the right one.

In February 2005, I bought this "Les Paul Melody Maker" stamped on August 9th, 2004. Unknown what number it is out of the electrics that were stamped that day.



I once owned a 1959 Melody Maker(bought it for $225 in 1991) that had been heavily modified by previous owners. I traded it off a couple years later and quickly regretted doing so.

When I saw Gibson had reissued the model, I vowed to get one. They called this model the "Les Paul Melody Maker" because of the Tune-O-Matic and Stop tailpiece combo, which was one of the mods on my old one - original MMs had a wraparound bridge. I haven't done any mods to this one but I eventually will. My old '59 MM had been routed for two PAF pickups, the neck p/u installed in reverse and it had the double volume and tone controls with the selector switch by the knobs like an SG. The reversed neck p/u caused it to have a phase-cancelled throaty growl when both pickups were used together. I may eventually mod this one to be just like the '59.

I hate the way the top on those looks, but other than that, those guitars rock.

Pretty the only stock parts on the guitar are the wood, bridge, tailpiece, nut and tuners. This guitar has seen so many different pickups...

Duncan '59 neck and bridge, JB bridge, Antiquity neck, Dimarzio 36th Anniversary PAF, WCR Fillmore neck and bridge and Crossroads neck, 490r, 498t, burstbuckers 1, 2 and 3, but the pickups that currently reside and will most likely be staying put in there is the Wolfetone Dr. Vintage neck, which is just awesome, and by far the best neck pickup I've had in this guitar (well, the Antiquity and Crossroads come pretty close...). Nails the classic PAF tone. If anyone is looking for a great PAF replica for their les pauls, these are the ticket, if it's good wood, they'll seriously make your guitar sound like an old one. The uncovered pickup in the bridge is a Gibson that was rewound, also by Wolfetone, that one is a completely custom job, I really thought long and hard about the specs that I wanted but in the end, think Page's sound on HTWWW, that one nails it. It's really amazing how much money I've spent on pickups for this guitar...

I really suggest Wolfetones to anyone who is looking at PAF style pickups, they're as good as any that I've tried, though I haven't tried Throbaks which are kind of the hot new thing as far as PAF style pickups go.

I think the bodies on these look pretty cool. I like the unfinished looking body, the lack of a trim ring around the zebra humbucker and the wooden knobs. I bet the combo of bridge humbucker and neck P-90 makes for some pretty sweet tonal variety! This, IMHO, is one of the last cool things their marketing team came up with. I'd own one.

I've never checked the numbers out, I suppose I should really.
You should check the guy who repaired my pickups website out. I highly recommend his work. I would imagine his copies are relly good.

Sweet, I've heard all about Sheds, the guy who winds them posts pretty frequently on one of the other les paul forums, I was very close to pulling the trigger on a set of his Shed Zeppelins but went with Wolfetones instead. Definitely sweet pickups though, in both sound and appearance.

i will soon have a les paul studio (can't really tell if it's a studio faded or a vintage mahogany, but it's cherry red).. in about a month hopefully. but no pics since i don't have it yet. but it is a really incredible sounding guitar.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

After going through a small mountain of guitars over the last several months I think I've finally settled on this Standard Faded:

I love that diablo but is it just me or is it almost pink? I'll definetely be considering it when I decide to get an SG either way. Anyways my Traditional is my pride and joy, just got it a couple weeks ago.
