    Folks,

    I hate to tell you all this, but the Philly Hard Rock Les Paul is a pancake body. So for all of you haters, a pancake body can, and will, rock hard. :)

    FYI it’s the second largest guitar in America. :)

    I thought Hard Rock Café always had Stratocasters?

    Clearly not all. I think the one in Nashville is an ES style Gibson.

    Repairing that headstock would be a big PITA

    Oh, it has a volute too

    If I had that remote in the background I'd still lose it down the side of the chair:(

    The new Hard Rock hotel in Seminole.

    I passed it in April, saw it across the fields. :eek:

    It is more Paul - in any way.
    More is more.

    I’ve played a couple that I didn’t dig, but nothing out of the norm for what I think about Les Pauls in general. But the best one I’ve ever played is my ‘78.

    That one from the Hard Rock looks like mine.
