    Hey there folks!

    I've been a Strat player for years and I recently got a chance to play a friend's Gibson Les Paul. His was plugged straight into an orange amp and lemme tell you that it was love at first sight/sound the moment i hit the first note.

    I rushed to the guitar store the next day and played thru a few les paul models. classic, traditional and standards, etc. A couple of the staff were giving me that skeptical "can-you-even-afford-it" look after a while. coz here in Singapore, the Gibson Les Pauls are housed in this special room with a posh couch n ****. Typically only the "rich-lookin'' or celebrities are seen in there. not some dude in ripped jeans and sneakers. whatever man. I was there for a Gibby and I'll leave with a Gibby…

    So in the end, I found THE one. A 2014 Les Paul Traditional in Heritage Cherry Sunburst. The look on the faces of those two skeptical monkeys was priceless as they watched me pay for my new guitar. Just like that scene out of Pretty Woman. Lol. The guy who helped me out was great tho. Packed my new babe up in the brown case and i was good to go.

    What can i say. She's an absolute joy to play. Why i didnt play a Gibson from the start is beyond me. The feel of the neck, the tones i got out of her when she started singing thru my Blackstar. Gorgeous.

    Thanks for reading :dude:

    Here she is...
