My first proper guitar was a brand new entry level Edwards Les Paul which was the lightest, most resonant and clear Les Paul I've ever played!! After 3 years of pure love and affection, our bassist knocked it over and the headstock snapped clean off!!! The luthier said the break was too horizontal and that it would be impossible to fix! Upon inspection the wood did seem brittle and a little porous, hence its zingy tone (however, it could easily achieve that deep Kossof howl with the tone knob down half way).... So what did I do? I don't only went and bought 3 Les Pauls the next month (see signature)!! Bottom line, the 108 is my go to axe, period. The Tokai I got used, previous owner a pro gigging musician she treated her like s**t, so the Tokai is the one I use for jams or if I need to travel to dangerous situations (e.g. If it gets stolen). The Gibson stays at home, and although it was hand picked out of all the Les Pauls in the store (under £2.5K) for tone, the other 2 sound better (but not by much). All have low action, my main set up priority. Questions?
