After maybe, what, 30 years of playing, finally got the Les Paul I wanted - 2018 Standard in Cherry Burst. Sure plays nice. Pickups are very articulate, QC is pretty good, really can't find any flaws, could maybe use a better nut but that's almost every Gibson. Man, I looked a long time to find one I liked, years and years, and rejected a lot. Let the bonding commence.

Ha ha, yes, the username, long story. I do own and love teles. Thanks for the comments, when I first saw the finish, I thought ooooh I need to try that guitar right now. The taper is not quite as slim as I normally like, but man you can get the action low on these and just rip. And they sound great. Now I just need an R9, lol. It never ends.

Also, you guys all have beautiful guitars, and I am honored to join the club, finally. I salivate all over my keyboard on a regular basis looking at those things.

Congratulations! It took me a long time too - but it feels great, doesn’t it?

Careful, if she knows you're thinking about that R9 when you're with her she may give you the cold shoulder :)
