I couldn’t resist posting a teaser about my Marc Bolan Les Paul VOS. What a beauty!
I’m writing up a new page devoted to this wonderfully excellent guitar.
Yes, we know it’s a “signature” model, issued years after the tragically early demise of the guitarist in question, but who cares – it’s beautifully put together, gorgeous to look at, and a dream to play.
Full review coming soon!
In the meantime, here are some photos to whet your appetite…
Even though I used natural light for this shot, it’s really difficult to get an accurate depiction of the colour of this guitar, other than to say that it is less orange in the flesh.
These Gibson Custom pickups are rather rare and sought after. Think hot vintage, but not too hot. They sound great with a classic rock crunch.
The neck is superb and exactly to my taste in terms of thickness and playability. Definitely a slim 60’s style neck, which resonates magically in the hand. A really good fret job too.
