    I still wish I knew who I was really talking to, but that is a great story! Quite a journey for one guitar...

    So far we've had 2 conversions in here.... Myself and Pier both updated our avatars...

    Talk to Scott and see what you 2 decide and hopefully we'll see another updated Avatar!

    Mine is an '80 "Jimmy Wallace" '58RI that was my 1st LP. I bought it in '84 for $500.

    To me, it's also one of the most beautiful LP's I've ever encountered.

    I've yet to play a better feeling and sounding LP. It will be passed on to my guitar playing son and hopefully stay in the family for many, many years.

    the one in my avatar is most likely a '59 les paul though people argue about the year since the serial number was sanded off.

    NotScot,

    That is really a roller coaster story, if ever there was one! I don't believe that many other members could tell that tale. And, here I complained after an amateur tech put a couple of nicks in my Classic in my avatar. You have oddles of patience, I'd say.

    I tend to take in strays, like this 2001 Junior I bought online from a teenager who had a rock band and who dropped it a time or two. Had no pg, bent tuners, buzzy electronics, "pirate" knobs, all of which I replaced. Then there was the chip, which I left alone. I call this "Chip."

    LOL It's a 77 I've had for 10 or so years. I put a 383 stroker in it and I love the old gal. she isn't perfect but she's mine :)
    I also have a 1998 c5 vette with a 6 speed but my 77 is the queen of them :)
