I'll have to wait a while before posting, I guess. I cannot play any instrument; but my wife, after 50 years of playing classical piano, now has untreatable, Stage 4, Jimmy Page Fever and is learning to play guitar. Her Gibson Les Paul "Studio", bought used (obviously) is IIRC a 2004 model - I guess the cutoff of C&V guitars is even more subjective than C&V bicycles. This topic like likely still be active in ten years, so maybe I'll post a photo then.

I did get involved to the degree of, after buying her a bunch of pedals and a pedal board, to get on the internet and ask how to wire then all up in when sequence. So far, no household fires, so I guess it worked out OK.

I don't often "like" posts (not because I don't like the posts, I just sorta dislike the concept)- but I like your post.

I've played LPs for years, and it's what I like and know... but last year I was instrument shopping, I decided on a new bass- so I went to the store with a pocket full of money- and there were some ES335s just calling my name. When I was a kid, I thought LPs were "old man guitars" and when I was in my 20s I thought 335s were "old man guitars" and now as I listen to things I like the sound of- damn if I don't want a 335.

My 335 is the most fun of any guitar I own... You really should get yourself one!
