I hear you. I started with a '69 Les Paul and still have it, but a few years ago I picked up a 2005 1969 Journeyman Time Machine Custom Shop Strat, exact replica of the age. It took me a long time to get used to playing it but after months and months of playing it now its my 2nd go to.
2017 Les Paul Custom - Walnut
2015 Les Paul Deluxe - Goldtop
2004 Les Paul Custom - Wine
2010 Les Paul Standard - Desert
1994 American Fender Tele - Black blonde neck
1969 Strat Custom shop Relic Time Machine series - 2005 Black blonde neck
Need to pick up some vintage.
