The Gibson Les Paul Custom is a 1978 Kalamazoo, Mi made guitar. Paid $712.00 new. Been playing it for thirty years. Back of neck is finish is worn off, but still solid as a rock. After Gibson closed the doors on its Kalamazoo factory, some of the staff did not like the way they were being made in the new Nashville, TN plant, and employee's pooled together and reopened the Kalamazoo plant. The name of their guitar is called the "Heritage", I especially like the Blues 135 copy. In the deal they got to keep all the original molds.
I very seldom play it anymore...too valuable.
The Ovation on the left is a 1991 Balladeer, I like the tone but when plugged into an amp, it gives horrendous feedback.
I never use it when we play out.
I also own a 1991 Gibson ES 135, which is all I play now
I got spoiled.
