Without getting into details, these past two years have been a living Hell. But, I survived, and was finally able to get back to work, to attempt to put my life back together. On Monday, I decided to reward myself, and my new 2020 Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Les Paul Standard showed up this morning. Here she is, next to my 2011 Traditional. I still need to do a setup, to my personal preference, including putting on my Super Slinkys, but I'm just enjoying it as is, for the time being.

Gorgeous twins, congrats on them both!

Not sure which top I like better? Close call.

And that's from an identical twin, too.

@pondcaster Thanks! I'd have to give the edge to the Gibson. The flame is a lot more active, and it has a lot of beautiful mineral streaks. But, Epiphone has started to close the gap! There's no fooling myself into believing that they're equals, but I'd have no problem taking this one on stage.

Thanks guys! I did a setup last night, and needed to add a bit of neck relief. But, there's a high fret causing problems that still needs to be addressed. Once that's done, I should be good to go!
