    Oh dear. Unlike chickenpox, I don't think it will go away.

    I just hope the guy I'm trying to buy a lemon-burst r9 from doesn't see the asking price on this one and tell me what to do with my offer on his.

    I refinished a Tele clone about a year ago I thought was nasty. I think I posted up some before and after photos here.... But as nasty as that Tele was.... This one wins.

    That is a signed pice of art, or so they claim; sadly I've seen many worse finishes.

    Play it in good fun.

    "The Tie Dye Les Paul was bought Second Hand in 1997 and is a rare guitar, this one being serial number #14 out of only 101 ever made by George St Pierre a Gibson Luther.

    The guitar is basically a Les Paul standard, but St Pierre figured out a way of actually putting cloth over the body and neck of the guitar and then being able to finish over the top of that.

    There is not too much known about George St Pierre except to say that at one time I did have a few conversations with him. He later left Gibson and started making Tie Dye guitars of his own - at least he offered refinishing of the real Gibson guitars, and he had many designs.

    But I am not so sure he still offers that - the guitar business is a tough place to be.

    In any case, these 101 Gibson Tie Dye guitars are very likely to never be made again and that's why I have this one. It plays like a regular Les Paul but looks like no other.

    In FACT each of the 101 guitars St Pierre made were different. Some were reasonably similar, and I have seen very many of them. But I have never seen another one like this one - ever.

    Here are the features:

    The Gibson Les Paul Tie Dye 1995
    Bought in 1997 as a collectors guitar
    Never Played
    Made Personally by George St Pierre at Gibson
    The only one with this Design
    Just 101 ever made - ant this is one of the best in our view
    Probably one of the very few unplayed guitars
    There is checking to the finish"

    I wonder if the cloth can be removed without damaging the original finish.
