Firebird or LP?

Recommended Posts

I recently replaced my Les Paul Classic with a 2017 Firebird T.

 

The Les Paul is an icon. I love the look and the tone, but for some reason I just don't get along with them from an ergonomic perspective. The body digs into my forearm and I usually end up switching to another guitar after a short time. I had never considered a Firebird because I thought they looked like they'd be awkward, but I don't have the forearm issue at all with it. I can play it as long as I want. I also dig the fact that it is a neck through design and everything feels shifted to the left a bit. This makes it feel similar to my favorite instrument, my Rickenbacker 4001 bass. [thumbup]

I don’t see where I can add an attachment for a picture?

 

Side note, I played a 2017 traditional LP tribute today at a local music store and I’m definitely happy I decided on the Firebird. The LP sounded good but it’s short and small.
