  1. What The Hell Did I Do Today? (a poem) What the hell did I do today? I was supposed to fly, but I didn't All our plans went astray They guy I was supposed to fly with was bedridden He wrenched his back, and was in a lot of pain I felt bad for the guy, he's a good one So we chalked it up to bad luck, and the rain And we were better off in the long run So I worked in the office and put out some fires and I made plans for the next week I gave a tour to the new hires showed them the ropes, so to speak I eventually logged-out and went home plenty to do around here I calculated a way to split the human genome and then I sat down and drank a lot of beer Okay, I'm gonna shut up now. 😑

    GORgemus. I love it. And the white switch tip picks up nicely on the edge binding, in my opinion. Looks nice. 😃
  3. Congrats on your retirement, Bravohorn 1, and on the new Gibson. I admire that you are playing, and enjoying it, after losing your digits. Django Reinhardt would be proud of you!! 😉
  4. That is amazing. Such patience and craftsmanship. 🙂
  5. My first marriage was a lot like that. 😐

    Les Paul BFG

    I owned a 2018 BFG (P-90 model) for almost two years. Ultimately the dual P-90's didn't do it for me, and I began to crave a proper, mega-weird 2007-2008 one, with all the odd original trappings. I've been on a quest. 😗

    Les Paul BFG

    Mike, Just sell it to me as is. If it's bone-stock from 2007 to 2008, I'll pay you fair market value for it, and then you can go after a Gibson Les Paul more to your liking, one with 2 Volume knobs and 2 Tone knobs. Really. I have been wanting a proper vintage BFG, and this way we both come out ahead. 🙂
  9. A very nice and powerful treatment of that old John Lennon song. Good stuff. 🙂

    Les Paul BFG

    The kill switch affords you a stuttery-on/off effect which is employed by many metal players. Ace Frehley used to end some songs with a mammoth power chord, but use the kill switch to dramatic effect at the very end of the song, leading to a powerful finish. Well. Actually, he would usually just roll the Volume all the way off of the neck pickup, finish the song on the Bridge pickup, and then use the pickup selector switch as a defacto kill switch to achieve the same flashy effect. 🙂

    Les Paul BFG

    You have a BFG, which is most decidedly not a normal Gibson Les Paul. In any way. It's unique and weird. And that's why so many people out there covet it. Because it's so different. Why not sell it (as is) to a BFG enthusiast, and get yourself a normal, pedestrian, regular Gibson Les Paul? Everybody wins that way. 🙂
  12. I have never once been able to upload a photo attachment to this web forum. I've learned to either copy the photo link from another site and paste it into the text, or if it's an original photo of mine that I want to post, move it over to Imgur or Dropshots, and then bring that link in. 😐

    Les Paul BFG

    You won't help the value of the guitar by taking the kill switch out of it, or disabling it, that's for sure. What's the down side to leaving it as is, and simply not using the kill switch? Me personally, I LOVE a kill switch. 🙂
  14. I love to play with 9's on my electric guitars, and 10's on my Les Paul. Here's an idea; If all the upper (EADGB) strings are to your liking, but the very bottom, light-gauge E string is slinkying off the bottom, you may want to change out just that one string. Experiment with an 11 or 12 (you can buy individual strings at most guitar stores), and see how well she behaves in Eb tuning. https://www.stringsandbeyond.com/ernie-ball-acoustic-guitar-single-string-1011-11.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=googleshopping&googleshopping=yes&gclid=Cj0KCQiAzZL-BRDnARIsAPCJs71WOTqoxE75nnA5Zb3uwx7x9zXmorJKnDpHzTN4AT_MtgkNYceXU1kaAmi_EALw_wcB
