That’s my 1960 Les Paul Junior that I bought from Chelsea guitars back in 1992.
It was a total wreck when I got it but I had the very talented Mr. Pat Clark paint it white for me and then I got the red tortoise-shell guard from Pick Guardian in Ohio.
Gibson had never done a design like this – I was trying to recreate the look of my favorite Fender bass, the Alpine White Precision Bass with the red pickguard. It’s been out there for awhile in photos & videos on the web and now I see that certain “rockstars” have “borrowed” my idea and presented it as their own…but we all know, I was the FIRST! 😉
