Larry DiMarzio's 1959 Gibson Les Paul

Check this baby out. For me it's the holy grail of guitars, others may disagree but I think it's fantasticly cool.

That's a great vid, I love stuff like that.

And good god, that is one NICE Les Paul. In fact, whenever somebody says the words "Les Paul" that's almost the exact image that comes to mind.

That's exactly what I was thinking. That is just the iconic Les Paul image isn't it. That's what Les Paul's were all about.

Re: Larry DiMarzio's 1959 Gibson Les Paul

If Larry was any kind of man he'd invite us all round to have a look at his guitar collection
I bet it's got loads of interesting pieces in it.

He is a kind man.... with a fantastic collection. He's also smart enough not to have an open house

Re: Larry DiMarzio's 1959 Gibson Les Paul

Now this is what I don't get (and feel free to disagree)... why arse about with self tuning, sparkley blue, whiz bang fad guitars when man is able to create such a simple and beautiful guitar?

Very few of us will ever be able to afford, let alone touch, such a classic guitar... but it's almost comforting to know that it exsists.
