SoloDallas Plays a (Real) 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Thanks to Friend John

13 Jun SoloDallas Plays a (Real) 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Thanks to Friend John

A good Friend, invited me over here in California to try the first Real Gibson Les Pauls in my life.

Well, you know I had several conversions which are terrific, but these were the real deal.

Actually he has two: a 1959 (played in the short clip) and a 1960. Two bursts, yes.

I got to play them for quite a while, but we only recorded a very short, raw clip of one of them – the 1959 – on a Dumble Overdrive Special Silverface (I had other two amps, you’ll see them in the video, but I only recorded with one).


It seems my adventures keep on “happening”.

    Ouh yeah.. really nice! They got something “magic”, huh? :).. Played a 1960 Burst a few weeks ago.. it was the finest guitar I’ve ever played.
    Les pauls had never really been my thing, but after I played that one my mind has changed πŸ˜€

      Waiting for a guitar can suck, I know πŸ˜€ Would you mind posting some close up pictures of it? I think me and some others would be really happy about it. πŸ˜‰

    Wow Fil, that must of been a real blast to play.

    Thought:…… you should have taken the SVDS with you and hooked it up to that vintage beast. What better first test than on a ’59 Paul???? πŸ˜›
