You know, I didn't even notice that, and no I'm not wild about the green, but by now, since you guys seem to think it's ok, I'll go ahead with it since I pretty much told the guy I'd take it if it's in the shape he says it is.
I guess should have done more homework and research than I have. The situation, now that I have a little more time than when I started this thread is that I'm actually not much of a guitar player, though I've been playing around on guitar since I was 10 (I'm 55).
I have an old pre-CBS Fender that I pick around on when I play guitar. I am more proficient with bass, and have a mid 70s Fender Precision I have played in a few bands. Mostly, though, I'm one of those jerk singers. Nahhh, at my age, I'm not as obnoxious as I was when I was younger. I realize by now I'm not going to be a rock star. I build houses. Least, I do when the market is good, but right now it sucks. So I play music now mostly for the fun, and for a few bucks on the side.
The Les Paul is really more for my son than for me. He's mid 20s and in this rough economy, he's having enough trouble making ends meet, like so many folks these days. I figured I would buy a Les Paul while it's kind of a buyer's market. (Coincidentally, it's also a great time to buy a house if you can swing the tougher loan qualifications) He's also a better guitar player than I am (not hard to so be), and so he'll be better able to appreciate it. I just figured every real guitar player needs a Les Paul at least once in their life.
Well, thanks again. You guys are great help. You have a nice board here.
