    Yes, and so is HM, Dave Johnson, RS Guitar Works, etc., and every other luthier who builds a replica.

    completely agree. The difference, for me, is I live close enough to HM that I can go to his shop and 'try before I buy'. It is something I realize I am very fortunate to be able to do and others on the board are not.

    I get what you're saying, but no one's saying 2012 was the best year, now or then.

    The Reader Digest version of my experience the past 3 years with the Historic Reissues is this.
    CC#1 comes out I'm back in the Les Paul player club after two decades.
    Regular reissues still not bonding like the CCs
    2012 CR8 becomes main guitar and a CC on rotation. Regular reissues getting better.
    2013 major step regular Reissues sound and feel like prior CCs and the CCs for this year is off the charts.
    I found my Les Paul this year(its a CC) and I'm not letting go of it

    Oh I should add in those two decades I just collected Les Pauls and didn't play them that often.I have been tru 100 or so in that time.In the late 90's I had 35 Les Pauls at one time.
    I played PRS.

    thanks! It would have been hypocritical of me to do otherwise! :thumb:

    I love playing and making music. It is very rewarding. When I was a child, I used to express myself through art. When my world opened up to music, my desire to create moved from visual stimulation to aural stimulation.
