    Ah yes, the legendary '94 Silverburst Les Paul.

    That one is Adam’s #1. I think that’s a 79?

    I’m definitely getting that sig.

    Actually watching the opening band (Author & Punisher) at a Tool concert right now.

    It's funny because those '90s Les Pauls are actually starting to become cult classics. :lol:

    This is such a Phil X kind of guitar. A really cool dude overall. Love the Robin in the neck cavity. :lol:

    Yeah, he apparently swapped over to Gibson recently. Just got a souped-up V that was made you could see in the Andertons video. He played it at the big Gibson show last night too.B

    The funny thing is that I figured it was Phil for sole P90 on the bridge since he's been rocking guitars of that kind exclusively, and I saw a clip with him at the Gibson booth. But with his cool dude persona, adding the Robin just screams like something Phil would do. He's the Jeff Spicoli of the guitar world.

    That's one of the main reasons I'm a huge Phil X fan. He still loves guitar like I did when I was 15

    It's another instrument in the Gibson Collaboration series, it was actually built by Leo Scala.

    From what I've heard there are going to be a lot of cool collaborations coming down the pike, from really good builders, some you wouldn't expect to be working with Gibson. Interesting times.

    EDIT: Here's the Gibson/Scala Phil X V.
