Learn what I find interesting and try to keep it interesting until something else catches my intersest. Not Practical but I learn alot.

Comment:
I can´t put a price on this guitar. I traded for it with a 150 P.O.S. bass that I had put a Carvin bass humbucker in. The guy I traded with still asks about it when ever I see him. I call it my furniture. Plays incredible and sounds even better. Have yet to find a Les Paul to match or even come close in Playability or sound. Unfortunately I got it in a stripped to the wood condition and I just recently have decided to refinish it. Linen White (really really White) and am going to go super high gloss. Will post pics when finished.

I ordered this guitar, Paid 1450 for it when it retailed for 2499. It is Alder body, Quilted Maple Top, Trans Green, PBC Tension Free Neck (hdstck is seperated from the neck with a brass shim),H-H config, 3-way, vol, tone, I put EMG 81/85s, 18-volt mod, Original Edge Lo-Pro tremolo. Super awesome guitar (my main wire and wood since I bought it), plays as good as my SGTV (if not better) with a Modern sound.
