    Well it was a good day. I picked up a brand new 2014 epi less Paul standard plus top pro in translucent black. This axe is sick, just got it out of the box. Didn't play it yet but fantastic looking guitar. And best of all for 499.00 out the door.
    I also on a lark bought a sawtooth Tele. Mostly for the case, got a free guitar. But super impressed. Set up sucked and I wanted a black pickgaurd. But otherwise after an hour of setting it up it plays decent. It needs some fret work but not much. Neck nice and straight. Over all very impressed. 159.00 out the door. Cannot beat that price. Any day with new guitar is a good day.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Ah man! Grew up with Lesters, grew to love Tele's and need some surf green. One heck of a day, WV, double congratulations!

    Now I'd like to hear about your charger...and whether the roof remains proper. Actually, if you answer we could end up getting ourselves hollered at.

    And talk about a coincidence, I'm in the US too!

    Do not have a charger, but I do have a purple challenger. No worries my moniker is from my 2005 tbird. I have the only one in west virginia in Inca Gold. Ford only made 84 of them. And mine doesn't have a sister.
    I have always wanted a les paul. I have an epiphone special 2 which is more like a fat strat, no carved top and bolt on neck. But like my strats they just do not have the sustain. Then I debated on getting the electromatic but it comes with Broadtrons which I already have in my Streamliner, so I looked around thought about getting the esp 1000 duncan but kept saying to myself, self you keep looking for something that looks like the L.P., so why not just buy one? And I looked at gibsons of course but no way I will ever spend that much on an instrument. In any case I was perusing Amazon and this L.P. was buried in the weeds. Not sure how I found it. The blue one just like my black is almost 900.00. This was listed as 599.00 with 100.00 off coupon. So I jumped.
    Now the telly I am going make a project of. I bought some really nice embossed bridge and control panel. Now I need a black pickgaurd, I will probably spray plastic coat and paint it black. Some black saddles, tuning machines, and string trees. It's going to be a work in progress. It's amazing how decent the guitars coming from Indonesia, China are nowadays. My epiphone special 2 nowhere as good at quality as the sawtooth. And it's only 15 years old.

    Hey, I've got a pony car too! Bit less red in the color though. Only thing close to playing guitars is farting with them. Sure you'll have a ball and would like to see her when you're done!

    Ok so I figured free tele so I went nuts on Amazon ordered 114.00 worth of parts and had a ball. Check out the new tele. Alnico 5 pops. Large pots graph tech nut wilkenson tuners. Lots of fun in the end. Also dressed the frets and repaired some errors made in manufacture. Plays awesome now.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
