    In fairness, Steve Morse played a ridiculous modded tele the whole time he was in the Dregs.

    Had a buddy, guitar player who would buy new guitars and within a year modify them to the point where their sound was not fish nor fowl and buy another one.

    Sitting around his in home studio there were Frankys everywhere.

    Raising this one up from the grave.

    I came across this one in person and I took this picture.
    Les Paul disaster.
    This Gibson Les Paul standard had a couple of frets missing, but when I looked a little closer I found that the neck at one time had broken out completely and was glued back in using DOWELS drilled right through the neck and body to keep it in place.

    I asked the seller how much he wanted for it but his selling price of a grand was too steep for me seeing as how catastrophically it had been repaired.
