Here’s something that most guys would love to own… especially if they’re a guitar player. A Gibson Les Paul knob bolo tie. Even if they’re not, who wouldn’t love this bolo tie made with a Gibson Les Paul knob, guitar picks, cable ends and some beautiful black, braided leather to hold them all together?
Imagine going to a party or a show with one of these on. There’s something so cool about this bolo tie. Definitely not a cowboy bolo tie. And it’s not like any average Joe would have one. Women have bought one of these for themselves as well. Very chic and original.
I start with a beautiful vintage guitar knob made for Gibson guitars (Les Paul) and place it on a couple of beautiful celluloid guitar picks. I attach these to a tension bolo back for ease of adjustment. This bolo back also won’t scar and fray the beautiful, braided leather cord that goes through it when adjusting. The black leather cord is 4 mm. in diameter. I finish it off with cable ends … the kind you’d plug into an amplifier, drilling them out to make room for the leather cord.
