    Walk in to my local Gibson dealer, slap down the last 2 payments I owe on my Goldtop DeLuxe ! Yup....paid 'er off early , God I'm good :D

    ....turn over to the Gibson wall....OMG...a LP Standard, darkish lemonburst, nice chevron pattern flame(going the right way).
    I'm going to ignore it....just like the last time I was in and that LP Standard in ebony glared at me.

    Well ****. I played it, oogled it, damn near drooled on it. Took it up front and was quoted a killer price on it. Using all my superpowers, I put it back
    and ran out. I am now having withdrawls thinking about it. And I love the guitars I have(4) !

    DOES IT EVER END ????

    It does end. Just go buy the new guitar of the week and you'll be good for a very short period of time.. so it's ended.... untill next time..

    Look not, want not.

    I recently bought a 1974 Les Paul Deluxe goldtop. It was the only Les Paul in the store I wanted.

    Enabler! I think we've all slowed down a bit, just look at the emporium. Must be gas (not G.A.S.)

    You did the right thing by not giving into your GAS. I am proud of you.

    With that said, I can get back to playing the Gibson LP Custom Lite I just bought.

    I'm guessing it ends in the afterlife. Other than that, there is no cure. The thirst always wins.

    Aleclee: Question- who made the guitar on the right side of the picture, it appears to have a neck thru construction and a 3+3 headstock? Thanks!
