Went to buy some strings
« on: May 27, 2017, 04:29:22 PM »
My wife usually sits in the car, but this time she came in with me, walked out with this, but hey, they threw in the strings and a strap my wife picked out. I traded 2 guitars and a mandolin along with more money. So my guitar count dropped by1. I no longer have any epiphones or squires.
 It's a 2016 Les Paul studio T with push pull volume knobs and the kicker is, they dropped the price down to 949 including the case (they already come with a case)

"No, no, I didn't buy a new guitar, this is just how they package strings these days. Pretty cool huh? ;D"

100.00 Epiphone LP (was gonna put P90s in it, but I just never did, squire standard tele (not bad, I just couldn't get past the squire part) and a gretsch New Yorker mandolin with piezo pick up. It had a very small neck, my hand kept cramping up.

Sweet!  Great looking lp. Chambered? 

Usually I go in to buy strings and come out with nothing but a bigger wish list  :-\
always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question.

This one is not chambered, it's a lot heavier for sure. My 2017 tribute T is though.

Very nice indeed.

Yes, please tell me that the case is lined with real puppy, none of that fake stuff.

It is, it is lined with cuddly puppy fur. I want to mount some white leds in the case that light up when you open it.

Yup that about sums it up!

I love white LPs. I've always wanted a white studio with an ebony board. Congrats!

Nice purchase Jimi
