Hello fellows, Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a French man of wealth and taste and I have some sympathy for Gibson axes! I own five of them, from the latest to the first : Gibson Les Paul CM 2016 T (Model LPCM16SESN1), highly upgraded : see here. Gibson SG Standard 2017 T Cherry Burst (Model No. SGS17C6CH1) with blank trussrod cover and some upgrade coming soon. Gibson Les Paul Standard 2017 T Bourbon Burst (Model No. LPS17B8CH1) with blank trussrod cover, MOP tuners buttons and MOP switch tip. Gibson Custom Shop ES-339 2010 Curly Maple Vintage Sunburst (Model No. HB0010M) Gibson Les Paul ???? (This one is very very... special). And other guitars: - Fender American Stratocaster - Aria Pro II TA-? (I don't recall the model name, will check) - Samick designed by Valley Arts Custom Shop - Sigma DM-? (I don't recall the model name, will check) - Line6 Variax Acoustic 700 Natural - Fender Jazz Bass New American Standard NAS Rosewood I started playing the guitar in 1991 (and I'm not so good at it though ). When I was a student, I hit the scene several times and recorded one LP with my first band (pop/rock) while playing the bass with another grunge band and drums in a third classic rock band. After the split, I played and sang acoustic covers in bars and small venues and recorded a very confidential EP with 4 songs I wrote. I am a father now, and spend my free time playing the guitar in the sofa. Big fan of Gibson, I'm looking forward to visiting the Custom Shop soon... hopefully.
