I figured it was time to put the Les Paul DC I got at the beginning of this virus away and bring out my old Les Paul Standard. Well after opening the case, and getting ready to tune, I saw how ratty the strings were looking and decided to replace them with a new set of DRs. Well, after getting the strings off, I saw how rough the fret board was looking and set about cleaning and conditioning it. After that, I decided the frets could sure use a polishing. With that done, it was apparent that everything could use a good polishing. Next it was time to finally put on those new strings, only to discover the tuner for the bass side E string was worn out, so now it's time to logon to Sweetwater for a new set of Gibson tuners. Maybe I should have just left the DC on the stand.
