    Not because it matches your costume though,  right? 😀

    Now that I have the Gibson bug, I really want to try a LP. My buddy has a Deluxe I think. One of the ones with the mini buckers. Might give that a spin sometime.

    That one looks great. Congrats on the new axe!

    Yep…..had one way back when no one was buying Gibson LPs.  I actually like the mini humbuckers more than the PAFs.

    It was a ’74 black beauty with binding and Jeezus was it a boat anchor.  Weighed about 12lbs.  After I sold it I swore I would never buy another LP and for over 20 years I didn’t until I bought my ’56 Gold Top Tribute.  That one only weighs 8lbs so I’m good.

    Mine weighs 8lbs.  I’ll verify that to within .0001 mgs when it gets here as well as a full report on the tort ratio of body to PG and also a count of the whorls and swirls in the finish.

    Could you reply with an acknowledgement of the awesomeness of my guitar and include a superfluous statement about how you JUST bought an instrument that was exactly the same but not really?

    I’m feeling nostalgic today 😀

    Will you send it back with rage if you find a variance in the posted weight? I would. Someone needs to be held accountable.

    Cool guitar except for the knobs. Is this a good time to post a pic of my SG? I have a guitar too.

    I once had a guitar!  Back in aught 5 or aught 6, I think it was, I owned me a six stringer.  Me and the boys had a gig at the local grange and I was sweet on the stewards daughter.  Marge, I think her name was… maybe Gertrude…  Anyway, we had a big gig at the grange that night and we were all dressed to the nines.  When Marge showed up during our first break, I decided that I was gonna go talk to her.  I fixed my hair and adjusted the onion that I wore on my belt, that was the style at the time, and headed over to pour my heart out to Marge.  On the way, I ran into Old Greg – he’s Young Greg’s older brother and uncle by way of marriage – and he started telling me about how he’d just heard that Snoggy McGee from down the river had just caught hisself a black bear.  Least he thought it was a black bear because of the way that it was walking east and west instead of north and south, as brown bears tended to do.  Anyway, I had the onion on my belt and a flask of liquid courage in my breast pocket from when I’d gotten it from Ole Jeb earlier in the day when I ran into him at the Cork N’ Bottle whilst picking up some butter rum biscuits for my dear Aunt Sally who’s suffer from the milk leg.  She went over yonder to Doc Spiganetto’s and he said that he thought that her leg had gone klenotic and would need some of his wife’s old turmeric remedy.  So, anyway, I rechecked my onion, took a swig of that bathtub gin that Buck Chestenfield made in that batch before the po po came and took his still that his grandaddy built up in the backwoods up by Elrod’s Holler.  So anyway, the onion, did I mention that it was a vidalia onion?  That’s important.  So Dixie, Eustice and Mary Grace Beaugenes were dancing up a storm before our break and …. wait, where was I?  Let me start over.  I was wearing an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time and in walks Wilbur Tiberius Walker Quinn, the meanest man this side of the Tuscalooganahoochie, and he starts ta’ wallopin’ on poor Pervis Raliegh.  You see, Pervis, had taken a shine to Violet Quinn, Wilbur’s younger sister and Wilbur don’t like to share his women.  But none of this made a lick of difference because right about that time, the lights went out and I’ll be damned if Sadie and Tucker Williams didn’t have to shuffle all them folk oughta the barn so that no one would strike a match and set that barn on fire like what’d happened to Old Man Yates down by the old mill stream when he lost all them goats in the fire of ’93.  When we all tried to get back in, they started checking for onions and just after I walked back inside, I heard the biggest, loudest cracklackin’ boom that I ever heard, and I’ve heard some booms before, I’ll tell you what!  I ran back outside and right there, before my eyes lay the biggest, meanest, furriest… well, you know what?  That wasn’t that night, that was a different time.  I think the onion ended up in the soup that night.  Or was it the gin?  Anyway, the point is, if you went walkin’ around without an onion, you were bound to get into some trouble.  Thanks for your indulgence.

    Get out.

    The main difference,
    You don’t have 4 pages of people yelling at you to hit the return tab, criticizing your grammar, or in the case of one particular asshole, “I don’t read word walls (but can’t help responding to every one)”

    But you left out the dozen or more pics of ALL of it from beginning to end you’re supposed to post including pics of the onion and what you had for dinner, along with the narrative. 😉
