Ive seen a white one on musicians friend but it was an epi.

Les Pauls are one of my fav guitars, I would like one with a Floyd

It was a kahler.

Before he got kahlers in his gibsons in late 84/early 85, The les pauls he used were from 1981, He didn't want to wreck those guitars with putting kahlers in them, so he retired them. Then got some new les pauls (and firebirds) and got kahlers put into them.

EDIT: SORRY, DIDNT REALISE THIS THREAD WAS OLD, SAW AT THE BOTTOM OF A THREAD, LES PAUL WITH FLOYD. I need to look at the date of threads more..(also havent had sleep so I didnt really notice dates)

Re: Gibson Les Paul with Floyd Rose - Never seen one before


A decent tech can fit a Floyd to any guitar.
Barrie Palmer who is the tech over at Machinehead in Hitchin does that but it'll cost you.

Barrie's page at Machinehead
Les Paul Custom retrofitted with FR, a sustainer and an EMG 89
Les Paul Classic retrofitted with FR

Don't know if Gibson ever offered production Les Paul with FR but briefly there was a FR bridge designed to fit the anchors on a Gibson but was quickly discontinued as there was no market for it.

This didn't require any alterations to the guitar (short of removing the bridge unit), it flat mounted on top and left the option to be taken out and the old bridge unit put back on.
The top lock was a permanent thing though.

CC DeVille had a black 3 pickup LP Custom with a Floyd Rose back in the 80's... But he was in Poison too. It looked pretty good with gold hardware, if memory serves.

Re: Gibson Les Paul with Floyd Rose - Never seen one before


I was never a Gibson fan and I'll probably never will be but a LP with a Floyd is just wrong IMHO.

Re: Gibson Les Paul with Floyd Rose - Never seen one before


I don't mind the floyd on a LP thing..really.. had one long ago and it was fun.. I wouldn't route my 1960 LP, but if I came across one with a maple neck..maybe..
some of Ace's were actaully even worse..they had the Washburn "Wonderbar" on them while he was under contract to them with a Washburn Ace Frehley model. Find vids of his early solo "Rock Soldiers" era stuff. ("Frehley's Comet" was the band name.)
