This is a 1990 Gibson Les Paul Custom, the White has aged to a Cream. And there is a significant amount of wear and tear to this guitar. Nothing that affects the guitars playability and sound however. Just makes it look old.
The fretboard is practically untouched. Nobody has played this guitar, and it is definitely for sale if anyone is interested at all. PM me.
Im planning on building two guitars by ordering parts from Warmoth.
One will be a beautiful Black Stratocaster, with Gold hardware, Black Tone/Volume knobs, Parchment Pickguard, and Parchment Pickup covers. This will be with an Alder body, Chambered. The neck will have a Clapton ‘V’ contour, with a Rosewood fingerboard and Birdseye Maple neck.
The other, which I’m really looking forward to (because I just started looking into it today) is an all Rosewood Stratocaster. Black/White/Black Pickguard, White Tone/Volume Knobs, White pickup covers, and Gold hardware. This neck will be all Rosewood with a Wolfgang contour. And that is where the problem lies. I want a finished Rosewood neck. It just looks better. I know it can be done, but Warmoth doesn’t offer it as an option. Maybe when I’m ready to do this, and I call them up and ask them real nicely to do it, they might make an exception.
Just look at the pictures… Its sexy…
Don’t get me wrong, I completely respect Clapton and I don’t hesitate to call him a guitar god. He is without a doubt one of the best ever to grace us with his textbook fretwork, and a great artist. But his playing does not capture me.
John captures me.
Stevie captures me.
B.B. captures me.
Jimi captures me.
But for some reason, Clapton just doesn’t do it for me…
I like how one of the Youtube commenters put it, “Eric Clapton is a guitar god, he’s just not my god”.
Unless he was trying to make a religious statement that “we should not consider mere human-beings as Gods, in fear that we will upset our own judgmental, jealous God “.
In which case I disagree with the statement…
Anywho, here is a performance I really enjoyed by Clapton. Funny how its a Stevie song for a Stevie memorial concert.
