I sometimes look at LPs, and they're nice and almost get to me, but I shake it off. No way.
I bought one of these and will not look back for any HB Gibson LP :)

You can play a lot of nice music on a Les Paul.

Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.

Probably that was the idea.

All this LP talk actually inspired me to take my trusty '84 to practice last night and I was reminded all over again why I've kept it all these years. There's nothing quite like that crunchy overdriven goodness.

Someone and i are thinking similar thoughts...

I was going to name-drop GbV's Mitch and Tobin,
along with Joey and Kim in the pixies. That old Goldtop actually belongs to Kim, apparently.
Even Kellie and Kim in the Breeders.
J Mascis had an ancient Goldtop for a while. And possibly still does?
I've even seen Sonic Youth throwing an old LP around with reckless abandon...
The rhythm guy in Mastodon too.

I'm even in a similar position to the OP having an old SG Special.
And my best friend has a REALLY nice playing (and sounding) R6 Goldtop.

But I can't help thinking I'd like a nice two-pickup Custom in Black or Silverburst.
AND a Firebird.
I like Explorers, have previously had two copies (One was a Hamer), but they weigh a TON carrying them any distance in a case...
But I'd shy away from a 3 pickup LP Custom with a Bigsby.
Another friend had one of those with a heavy leather strap full of studs.
I swear that guitar weighed almost as much as my old Tele AND the Jazzmaster together. :wtf:
Gretsch Rocket jets and Pro- jets or whatever the model is are OK, but they're semi-hollow, so the sustain and overall tone differs from a good Lester.

To add to my bias I've been listening to Neil Young and Crazy Horse all week.
