2008, my local shop opens a case with a crazy Les Paul, light as a feather, and resonant as could be. The price was out of reach for me. 13 years later, the owner traded it back in. From the looks of it, never having enjoyed playing it, maybe a collector. I'm not a Les Paul player, but this guitar had something special tonally for me. It's been on a few gigs so far, and I love the feel and sound. And, say what you will, the thing gets a lot of positive comments! I even love looking at the cool V-style case!
