This is not my guitar. I'm posting this for a friend.

Most of the MSA pedal units were installed on Peavey guitars. This is the only one installed on a Les Paul.

The guitar is also equipped with coil taps and a phase switch for greater versatility.

The asking price is $10,000.

Hey Mike, I'd love to have that guitar but it's way too expensive for me. As far as it being the only one ever made, I don't think that's true. When Phil Baugh was still living in Dallas he was associated with MSA. He and Maurice Anderson came to Blackie Taylor's music store when it was still in Hawaiian Gardens, Ca. to do a promo thing for MSA. This must have been in the late sixties or very early seventies. Anyway, Phil had brought a Gibson Les Paul with one of the MSA guitar pedal units installed on it. I believe it was a sunburst LP though so this probably isn't the same guitar. I remember I was in total awe of the thing and really wanted one but Blackie Taylor convinced me to buy a new Blanton S-10 pedal steel instead, and it was cheaper.........JH in Va.

Looks like Phil is playing an L5S in this picture.

I was told by the owner that this was the only Les Paul with the unit. The man might have been mistaken, but I don;t think he was deliberately lying.

Then again Jerry, I think Darvin is right. The guitar in the picture appears to be an L5S, not an Les Paul. He could have been playing that.

At any rate, if you are interested in the guitar, I can put you in touch with the owner, and you can negotiate the price.

I too saw the MSA driven Sunburst Gibson LP. Bud Carter showed it to me when he was next door to Norris Family Music (Outside of Dallas, TX). This must of been in the early 1990's.

Hey Mike, after looking at the pic of Phil, I believe that's the guitar he was playing and not a Les Paul.......JH in Va.
