Hi all,
Finally cracked at 57 and completed number 6 on the bucket list by buying my first Gibson Les Paul ( 2017 Traditional HP Honey Burst ) and it is a beautiful beast. I am particularly happy with the finish which was even commented on by the guys in the store (in a non sales way !! ).
Just thought I would drop in and say hi to everyone.

Looks killer. The Chrome rings and knobs are strange looking at first to us old timers with plastic rings and knobs, but it does not suck.

Welcome, SubseaUK.

Fantastic and beautiful Les Paul you have there, mate.

Were you a submariner in the Royal Navy, by chance?

Am I alone in this?

Always wanted a LP ever since trying a friends back in '76, it almost played itself. now in the later years with age and shortening tendons in the hand creeping in I wanted to try and make life as easy as possible ....that coupled with stunning looks ( the guitar not me [cool]
