I was at GC today killing time and my friendly GC employee tells me about a recent trade in that he thinks I will like. He must not know me very well because I am a full fledged strat guy. He shows me a 1994 Les Paul Classic in black with gold hardware. He tells me that some guy traded it in yesterday. The price tag showed $1299. I haven't played a Les Paul in several years so I thought why not. I plugged it into an Egnater Tourmaster full stack and let 'er rip. Holy smokes. I forgot how thick and ballsy a Les Paul sounds. For 30 minutes I was Billy Gibbons and Warren Haynes all wrapped up in one. Now I am feverishly trying to figure out how to scrape up $1200 without the wife finding out. Damn GAS!!!!
