    Hey all, new member signing up from the Greater London area here.

    Coming here to hopefully share my experience of acquiring a few Japanese Les Paul copies.
    I'm also looking forward to getting some expert opinions and help with a strange Greco EGC-X?X? (it's a complete mutt in terms of specifications).

    See you in the 'Other Single-Cuts' section!

    Welcome fine sir.... I hope you are a resilient chap... the locals are an interesting bunch... wealth of knowledge with a healthy, and sometimes challenging sense of humour ... and many of them cannot spell humour :run:

    Ta. I'm more in the Watford commuter belt area.
    Dunno if it's much of an excuse, but I've only gotten into Les Pauls (non-authentic ones) recently. Getting older now and not liking what's going on over at s#v*nstr!ng.org lead me to try other stuff.

    Thanks.
    How do you explain the fellas from Living COLOUR using the 'correct' spelling? Just came back from their London show and they ripped the whole city a new one!

    Pretty much can't explain that one. Sounds like it was a good show!

    If you are just a little north of Watford, then you are a Northerner ;)

    Originally from Ealing myself. Spent a lot of time in your neck of the woods though.

    A little late but welcome to the forum :thumb:

    Thanks Harmony. Why on earth would you want to venture out here?! Haha.
    Fortunately I am a bit south of Watford and have the privilege of getting a London area code phone number.

    With regard to spelling differences between the continents, do you also wonder if some folk have difficulties pronouncing letters ?

    1. Welcome.

    2. Harmony doesn't understand geography. She excludes that area of the UK known as the 'Midlands' completely. The North ends at the southernmost boundaries of Lancashire & Yorkshire. South of that is the Midlands, and then somewhere south of that we (the Northerners) decide where the Southern Softies territory begins.

    3. Never play a Banjocaster - they will corrupt your mind and spirit.

    4. Never try to understand a post by Tim Fezziwig - your head will explode. :run:

    5. Take no notice of the colonials - they can't spell to save their lives!

    :wave: :dude:
