Now that I look at the one I am holding and the one Davey Knowles is playing they look like the same exact guitar.......cool.

I remember that guitar well. I used to go to NAMM shows to work in the Klein Electric guitars booth. A couple of times we shared the booth with Budda amps, back in their early days. One show, Paul came up with the Dragon guitar to check out a Budda amp. (which after the show became mine) It sounded great! I remember telling Paul, "if you made production guitars that sounded like THAT, I'd still be playing your guitars." He later told me that the Modern Eagle was based on that guitar.
Very cool sounding guitar.
To quote Jimmy Buffet, I haven't a clue. But, after seeing a number of Paul's former guitars, much like Donald Trump's wives, there are common traits. Amber stain, nice flame tops, stop tails, etc (I'm referring to the guitars, not the blonds).
And yes, Paul toted this one around in a beat up SE gig bag. Kinda like hiding it in plain sight.
I had a bundle of help scoring this one. Talk about a bunch of enablers :>)
Is anybody else not seeing the pic?
OK, OK, my work computer clearly does not like my visiting this forum.
Photo of my Paul's 408 top. Yeah, I still think of it as 'his'.
So, eastern, european, firewood? What did Paul pick for this one?
Looks like European Maple to me but the growth rings aren't quite as close together as I've seen in the past so I'm not 100%.
