I'm new here and looking for some help with purchasing a Les Paul. I had a 77 Standard Tobacco Sunburst from the time I was about 14 to 23. I want another one but I'm skeptical to buy from ebay or other online sites. Also, I remember that I had to have it refretted; I figure that will be a future expense added to the cost of a vintage. I really miss the tone. However, I've been reading up and noticed the Signature T thread on this site. I'm thinking that might be the way to go. Another person told me that the Les Paul Classic would be a good choice. Unfortunately, I'm not close to a local store that carries them. Thanks!
