    I'd like to have 3: A Standard, a Black Beauty Custom and an R9 in cherryburst or honeyburst. Already got the Standard - 2 more to go~!

    My Les Paul goal(s) are to find one (no more than two) that can become my favorite; and I have: this 2000 Classic which I bought new 17 years ago. Tone and playability are par excellence'. I was lucky right from the gitgo. Goal #2 was to find the right set of pickups to bring out the woods' matured tone: 15 years later I found a Seth Lover pair that only made it better. Eureka!

    IMG_0020.JPG Wait! Just one Lester? After 10 years with my Classic, I located a likely candidate for my 2nd. and last Les Paul.
    It is a 2010 stock Studio Deluxe (bought used). Not quite as toneful, but a great player with a broader and full sound.

    I think my goal is to find one that likes me. I'm a huge fan. Even though I've always been and evidently always will be a 335 guy, I have tremendous respect and admiration for em. I've tried several, including a couple I would consider pretty nice. I've yet to stumble across the one that has made me think "this is the one for me". I am really digging my double cut, but my brain doesn't really think of it as being an LP.

    I would like two ebony Les Paul Customs. One with 2 humbuckers and one with P90's.
    I would also love to own an ES Les Paul.
    I think those 3 will cover my LP lust. I already have a "sunburst LP" that I'm more than happy with, so I don't need more of those.
    The ebony LPC GAS is the strongest. I would probably even trade my Maybach for one.
