Light many lamps and gather round his bed.
Lend him your eyes, warm blood, and will to live.
Speak to him; rouse him; you may save him yet.
He’s young; he hated war; how should he die
When cruel old campaigners win safe through?
But death replied: “I choose him.” So he went,
And there was silence in the summer night;
Silence and safety; and the veils of sleep.
Then, far away, the thudding of the guns.
The “Bushido” Les Paul is a neck-through-body, Les Paul style guitar which I built for myself in memory of my son Jake.
It is not a Gibson Les Paul guitar.
The reason I say “style” is because other than the superficial resemblance (from the front), the construction is quite different, and it has my own logo. Its not a reproduction, replica, or counterfeit
Its also not for sale. I do not build or sell Les Paul style guitars to customers (so dont ask).
Its merely shown as an example of recent work.
