Doug and Pat ask you to imagine that you're somewhere back in the 1950's and boy you sure do like that real pretty Mary Ford gal and them nice looking guitars that she plays alongside that other guitar player fella she's with on the TV. You sure would like to get one of those guitars wouldn't you? But which one?
So you go to the local music store to try them out but do you spend the $250 (w/o case) for the "Standard" or do you go the entire $375 (w/o case) for the top of the line rig, the gold plated "Custom" just like Mary and what's his name play?
Well friends, Our time machine is working as we go back to celebrate both versions of the 'Black Beauty/Fretless Wonder" Les Paul "Custom" models from the '50s and compare them to the "Standard" models of the same vintage. Just plug into the '55 Fender amp just like then and strum away. This show is packed with fun facts that we just sort of make up as we go along and fun demos of the guitars to boot, Join us as we bring you a little bit of class from the past, The Gibson Les Paul Custom.
