Haha, we had a pallet of them sitting around at work a few years ago and I thought it would look cool as a photo.
You weren't wrong.

my only non "floyded/Edged" guitar :)
2011 Traditional Pro Exclusive
Rio grande BBQ in the bridge, 57 in the neck push/pull volume pots.
I gig this guitar all the time along with either my Jackson SL-1 or one of my Charvels.
it's my least favorite guitar to play but man it sounds killer ,and I use it a lot for playing slide, does the Allmans Brothers thing really well.

'81 silverburst LPC, '83 all silver LPC and the red one is a '96 Catalina. Unfortunately I sold them all to put some money in my bank account
Tell me you at least got some sweet sweet Adam Jones markup on selling that 81 Silverburst? They're just skyrocketing.

If you didn't and took a loss, I'm so so so sorry for rubbing it in your face lol

I pretty much got my money back on them but sold them right before the big Adam Jones craze where I coulda made out better. I really wanted to keep the all Silver one, cuz its soo unique. Although at the end of the day I had to realize I had another rare guitar in the collection that filled the role of the LPC's and I didn't wanna sell that specific guitar.

About last night

55f18c09-6c84-462f-bf49-1736df3ed32d-jpeg.431927


L-R:
- 08 R0 GO
- '22 68RI LPC
- '21 R9
- '21 R7BB
- '19? R6

This was a nice evening. Turns out the ABR1 is the right call on the R9.

Do the R7BBs really have the fretless wonder treatment? Like really small frets? And how huge is the sound difference between the 68ri with the maple cap?

Fretless wonder stopped when norlin did afaik. I didnt notice the frets to be small on the R7bb.

68ri is a bit “ballsier” and has more bite. Different pickups too though.

I only have one. 50th anniversary 1968 LPC Black Beauty. Bridge pickup is a custom Seymour Duncan DDJ.

Fun fact, it has nylon saddles and there’s no ground wire (or even an internal hole for one) to the tail piece. This results in some hum when you’re not touching the tail piece so I had a guitar string run from the tail piece post to the closest pot. The wire is visible if you’re looking for it but it’s very subtle; it did fix the “problem.”
