My work of art is complete...
« on: March 02, 2009, 07:11:48 PM »
Gibson Les Paul Classic turned into a 99% custom Gretsch Paul!

Modded with TV Jones Classic pups, Vintage Bigsby, and a big fat roller bridge.  The only stock hardware left are the knobs and the toggle.  



Sperzel tuners add a little chrome up top.



I am definitely in love with this sweet ride.  She plays like a dream with tone and attitude that go on for days.

Looks fearsomely twangy.

I love those old gretsch-style tremolos.

Stay in tune well?
You\'re not wrong Walter, you\'re just an asshole.

It is indeed fearsomely twangy...and spanky and crunchy ala Malcom Young.  Simply put, TV Jones pickups RULE.      

She stays in tune very well considering the abuse I give her.  The roller bridge helps and really puts the shimmy in my shake.
