I've been on a major gear-buying binge this year. Bought tons of guitars, and played them lots and lots. I keep coming back to the Les Pauls. I know all the stuff about Gibson and how evil and stupid they are, and how there are quality control issues, and all of that stuff. But you know what? Les Pauls just rock my world. I love them, and I think they are great. So you can make fun of me now. I don't care. I love my Les Pauls. and 335s.
