congrats at starting at 70, i started 4 years ago 44, never too old to learn new things,First off apologies if this is the wrong area.
At seventy I just started playing guitar. I was invited to join a group of guys that jam. I see these guys on a daily basis so they aren't actually strangers. I show up to and they start asking about my guitar. I tell them it's a Gibson Les Paul Standard and It's a lefty. The reaction I got I didn't expect.
Why did you buy this thing? Why didn't you get the Traditional? A lefty? What the hell?
I don't understand. This guitar(to me) is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. To my ears it sounds perfect.
What am I missing?
