What's wrong with me? I'm not supposed to like Les Pauls.

    I don't like Les Pauls, but I bought this yesterday. This one is light-weight, resonates nicely, has decent pick-ups, and has a fairly chubby neck made from good timber. Maybe I do like Les Pauls after all. Maybe I should suspend some other prejudices too.

    I like the colour of that guitar. Nice score. Les Pauls have a very nice sound. The scale length makes it a lot easier to play too.

    Well, I only had some spare cash because, sadly, the Suhr Classic T that I ordered couldn't be built. Otherwise, this wouldn't have occurred.

    Like you, I never understood the appeal of a Les Paul (or any humbucker equipped guitar for that matter)....but life would be pretty dull if we all liked the same things;). Have fun with the new toy!!

    I ordered the SSC system on a chambered T body, and so far it can only go into a non-chambered body.

    Thats How I am . All my Favs played them but I just never bonded with one and when I put that together with the price of a good'un...........I just decided to be Les Pauless. That is until I played this baby:

    2005 Les Paul Standard faded. For only $1300 I don't feel guilty not playing it as much as the other 2 . Its very lightweight (Gibson went to town on the weight relieving on this baby;) ) but plays Very well and sounds righteous! Its a cool guitar when I want something different and get my Allman Jones fix! [​IMG]

    As others have said, you have been seduced by the power of the dark side. There is no return! :Devil

    That's a nice group. You've pretty much got everything covered there. What's the amp?
