I could be wrong, but I seem to remember Paul saying his was the only one that could be made in that orange color. Stan.

Waymon's was wine in color, I know where that guitar is. I have dad's guitar, he only used it on the video, it's been in the case ever since he finished the video. It may find it's way back out of the case before long though.

I seem to remember Paul also playing a sunburst Gibson on Music City Tonight when Chet appeared and Dick Clark was host. That was a nice one also.

Micah,
Enjoyed hearing the history of the guitar. It would be neat to see a recent photo of Paul's 'deep body' Gibson. Perhaps you will consider taking a photo and posting it on the CB.

Phil, that's the guitar I showed you and Eddie when you came by my house. Dad had that guitar made for me, it's on a L7 platform, it's even thicker than the PY model. He had my initials inlaid on the heel. After he gave it to me I asked him to play it on this show. There was only one of these made, its a beautiful guitar.

TX,
Micah

Out of all the guitars Paul had and played one of my favorites was that one on Fingerstyle Legacy .. I love the
sound of a fat guitar and the pickup job was so rich it blew me away when I heard it.. Just my opinion . To me that is the riches sound I have ever heard from a Gibson electric ! ! Smoooth ..

Micah - Thanks for being on here and talking about your Dad and his guitars ect...
Chet and Paul an unbeatable team . I sure miss them
