G’day all.

Middle aged aspiring guitarist here who wishes he’d taken it a bit more seriously in his teens. Big Kiss / Ace Frehley fan from way back and have always wanted a Les Paul simply because that’s what Ace plays.

With the current COVID situation and now working from home I‘d started to learn again a couple of months ago on a promotional Strat copy I’ve had for years collecting dust in various corners around the house.

I spotted one of the music stores here (other side of Sydney from where I am) having a 25 or 30% off sale a couple of months ago, so jumped and splashed out on a Epiphone LP Classic in Heritage Cherry Sunburst. Absolutely love the thing and am using it as a motivator to keep on learning this time around. (The wife also mumbled something about how I’d better be serious about it if I bought it).

No big aspirations to play in front of a crowd, just want to do this for me.

Found the forum while googling around for LP related stuff, gotta say there’s some info in here, will keep me busy for hours. Or days. Looking forward to more reading and learning.

Cheers

Kev

Ha ha, the HJ is actually a HZ nowadays. I think this is the 3rd incarnation since the original HJ. That‘s been a forum name for 20 odd years.

5 litre auto. A bit like your grandfather’s favorite axe, everything in it has been rolled over into successive utes over the years.

My other car that stays in the garage 95% of the time.

Nice. Hard to beat any 'H' Kingswood ute. I had a HG I did a ground-up rebuild on. Everything but the wiring loom got done. 308 but kept the 3spd column-shift. Gone now - lost it due to divorce, but that's another story.
