Big thanks to Brett at Eddie's Guitars for hooking me up with my first Les Paul!

It's a brand new 2011 R8 with the Bourbon Burst finish - looks really sharp! I had it delivered to my work so I can't plug in yet, but it sounds really nice acoustically, very resonant.

Just wanted to share, more pics and maybe some clips soon!

Very nice. Brett knows how to pick'em for sure.
Eddie's has good prices too in my experience.
Happy playing!

you went straight for a Historic?
did you not know that we have a rule around here, a certain way of doing things, you start with an Epi Les Paul, then after a year we let you move up to a Studio, then after a couple of years you get a Gibson USA Standard, once you have become totally competent on it, then and only then we let you get a Historic Les Paul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
only joking, she is a beauty! great color!!! enjoy her!!!!!

Haha, yea I was a bit worried the Forum police would be stopping by..

Always was a Fender guy, but played a buddy's R8 and had to grab one. Months and months of research later, here it is! The color is really sweet in person, nice gradual change from dark brown/red to orangish-yellow. Really happy with the whole process..
