    I think it has been readily proven when that video was released that is not a real 1959 sunburst guitar. Regardless, they both sound great.

    Howard Leese himself, in the video, said it was a 1959, and that he got it in the late 70s. You have info that says otherwise?

    I’ll have to find it. But some pretty well known people that work on vintage guitars right away were pointing what was not right about it.

    There are many threads about that guitar turns out. It was also pointed out on the old Birds and Moons and Vintage Rocker websites.

    Here is a link on the Les Paul Forum from 2011. Those guys have spotted a lot of fakes and conversions masquerading as real vintage sunburst Les Paul's. Right away they say the tailpiece is in the wrong place. I've also never seen a top like that on a vintage guitar---more modern BBQ stripes than the old maple back then. And if Scott Lentz did refinish the top, he certainly knows what it is and is not.
