I don't like tele's. Never have.

I like les paul's too... but not the weight. And the humbuckers didn't give me the sound I wanted. Plus; the neck on the tele just feels more natural to me.

I'm loving this thing. The simple controls are nice; and I really like the reversed switches. I haven't played tele's enough to be used to the "normal" way, but this feels pretty natural, having the volume knob up front, right within pinkie reach.

It has that twang, for sure, but plenty of warm tones. Sounds good with some twang, or with some crunch dialed in on the amp. I think it will be really versatile. Not sure how different it is from a standard tele, but the tele forums claim that the hotter pickups on this model are a bit warmer.

I have an SL, its more or less the what would happen if a LP Standard fucked an SG and I love it.

Not quite as well rounded tonally as a real Les Paul Stardard but close enough for government work, and your shoulder isn't dying after three songs.

My Dad has a '74 LP that he bought new and gigged with several nights a week for probably 20 years. He finally went to lighter guitars. He claims it's my only inheritance, so he'd better take care of it.

I have a Jackson DK3 that I bought as a HS graduation present for myself in 2002. It belonged to an airline pilot that bought it new and hung it on the wall, was utterly immaculate when I got it. I've played it on and off since.

Found out yesterday that it is 1 of 300 produced. I'll admit in this day and age of mass production, its kind of neat to have something like that.
Although now I don't know if I should play it or wrap it up. Just kidding, I'm playing it.
It really is a sweet guitar. Fast neck, tones out well. I have a bit of crackle in the plug (need to open it up and find if there is a loose connection) and a bit of fret buzz that I would like to clean up, but that is above my knowledge, and I don't know where to take it.
I also have a cheap samic acoustic that I call the 'campfire guitar' that I won in a raffle for $5 that I need to get the action lowered on, it would make it much more friendly to play.
My wife is musical as well and brought in a mid 1970s (6, I think *edit, its either a 64 or 65 based on the one picture I have) Fender Jaguar that her father bought new and a really nice sounding acoustic from a company owned by Martin (I don't remember the name off the top of my head) that would benefit from some action work as well.
We also have a trumpet, alto sax, violin, 1919 player piano (I'm rehabbing the player action, which is a nightmare of tubing), and a keyboard. Music is fun.

Very nice. Looks like it's had a re-fret. Nice checkering. Looks like it has a lot of mojo.
