Topic: Les Paul with a maple fingerboard.

While playing today a new lead guitarist brought in a Les Paul with a maple fingerboard. He said it was from the 70s and very rare. They didn`t make them for a long time. The guitar was the real deal. The fretboard had mother of pearl block inlays and stood out like a light against the black body. Has anyone ever seen one of these? I usually don`t care for Les Pauls, but this one really impressed me. If it were rosewood or ebony it would have been just another Les Paul.

Re: Les Paul with a maple fingerboard.

Les Paul's with a maple fretboard is weird, and looks out of place. (Would never play one in public)

I love the blues, and 70's rock, and can dig the new stuff. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page being my top three, I also enjoy Richie Blackmore, Rory Gallagher, and Santana (got my picture with him).
