EDIT: 12 Gibson LP's.
The three at the bottom are the ones I still own.
Never owned an Epi Les Paul but many other LP copies.
1. Gibson LP Pro Deluxe 77? Ebony
2. Gibson LP Deluxe gold top 70’s maple neck, Routed for HB's
3. Gibson LP Standard 1999 Ebony
4. Gibson Studio Lite in blue...
Yeah that is probably so.
In my case there were several things combined: The Guild had the straightest neck and the absolute best fretwork i have ever experienced. With the strings super low there were not much output acousticallly at all.
Since I had no real strength in my fingers I played...
I started out in my youth playing 8's with super super low action on a Guild S300D. (Loved that ugly guitar!)
Went up to 9's to be able to play on other guitars. Worked up my strength.
Then went up to 10-46 and there is where it is now. I have tried 9's from time to time but I prefer 10's
Yeah I have been thinking of selling off some odd guitars and stuff. Things I never use anyway.
The problem is most of the stuff isn't worth very much and I don't know if I can be bothered with advertising, stupid questions, lowballers etc..
On a serious note when we where teens my best friend smoked some kind of bong like device and got a psychosis.
It scared the crap out of me when I saw what it did to him!
He had flashbacks for years afterwards and never smoked again.
