Well I guess other than not being able to afford a Les Paul, I've spent all my time playing strats which I love for the versatility, and the user friendly controls, but bought a Custom Shop VOS Black Beauty about 2 weeks ago, and honestly I don't think I am ever going to go back! This is the most perfect sounding guitar I have ever played, and has bigger balls to it than King Kong. It screams!, and has a perfect round tone to it, even when I have the treble, presence maxed out and the bass at zero. The intonation is perfect as well, and rings out like a old Martin acoustic. Can you tell that I'm in love!!? haha Here's some pics below to check out.
