I have a gould 'eagle' les paul copy with three humbuckers. I found it by chance in a pawn shop a few years back and have looked on the internet a few times since but can find no reference to it. I've found lots of other gould guitars but nothing like this, even the owner of the local music shop was stumped so i'm not sure if its a discontinued line or a custom job somebody did at home but if it is its a very good job. So if you can enlighten me as to its origins or even better if you know where I can get a scond because it such a great player and the sound is fantastic.

I recently posted a call for help about a gould les paul copy with three p/ups. no one has responded yet  maybe through snobbery or not but please help me if you can.

P.S. ageing parts (strat p/up covers etc in coffee and tea) does not work, five weeks with parts sitting in a bowl and all i managed to make was a new eco-system. nice furry green bits. 

I doubt it is snobbery. :-)


I did do some searching and found Israeli versions of the guitar, but never found one that had three pickups on it, only 2 pickup models.




I don't think it's snobbery, either. I did essentially the same search as Dan, and found a couple of 3 pup models on eBay from around 2007-2009, but could not determine their age or provenance. I just don't think that many were made; nearly all the others were 2 pup models, and even finding info on the company proved problematic ( for a lunch hour's worth of search time; I don't give up easily, but I can usually scrounge obscure info faster than this...).

these guys seem to know everything LP maybe ask them.

Thanks guys, checked out mylespaulforum and awiating replies.



I also had a look and found very little info.  I have a Gould Les Paul with 2 pickups that I bought 10 years ago from Emis Music in Bristol.  They still sell the Gould Brand (and second hand guitars) so maybe worth dropping an email to.
