    55 reissue? I have a Gibson Historic 54 reissue, but had no idea they made a 55. I would imagine that they would be exactly the same though, so I can't see why they would even make one. How does it differ from the 54?

    We have an Agile (natural) which is a great guitar and my current #1 which is an Epi Nighthawk custom RI, honeyburst. If you can deal with the mini-LP/SG combo look, it is a fine instrument with many tonal options. It has single coil, mini-HB AND HB pickups, with coil tapping. Amazing guitar for $400 street. Looks like a Les Paul. Especially if you're drunk.

    I went looking for one about this time last year. I played everything from Juniors, Specials, Studios, to Standards, Customs and Historics.

    The one that grabbed me most was a Traditional...

    Because of my marital situation, I've had to give up my Tele to have work done on my '74 Les Paul Deluxe. My Les Paul is my first electric guitar...and it might be the last electric guitar I'll have after the "dust" settles.

    My Edwards E-LP-92CD. I got this used second-hand via another forum's classified section. The previous owner took out the bridge pickup (which was an SD JB) and replaced it with a Bare Knuckle Nailbomb, neck pickup is still the SD '59 that was stock. I'm thinking of changing those soon though.

    I have since restrung it "normally" - it came to me top-wrapped as in the photo, but I'm used to the more conventional stringing method.

    I have toyed with turning this into some kind of Steve Jones-inspired thing with some pin-up decals. Not exactly the same ones as his, but very much in a similar vein. I've been looking at a few sites...

    This is also the most expensive guitar I have ever owned, at £650. I love it.

    Just picked up a 3rd Epi Les Paul the other day. I traded a Dano for it. I bought the Dano about a month ago for like $40 or something rediculous. I found that I didn't like it very much. I thought it felt sort of flimsy. So, I swapped it for an Ebony Standard, shown here with my Goldy and Custom (leaning against my Blues Jr. and BC30).

    a few gibsons....

    Music is about variety, so I have a couple Les Pauls - an '80 Pro Deluxe and a '00 Studio. Plus a '73 SG Standard and an '81 SG Special. They all sound different and provide something unique...

    A tele & a les paul ---"heaven"

    Yeah, I just traded in my USA Standard Strat & my Gibson J45 Std for an 08 Les Paul Std made in 2010. Liteburst finish, looks really amazing and fitted with Burstbuckers it really sings.
    Weight has been an issue for me in the past with Les Pauls as I have a spinal problem. But this 08 model has the chambered body and feels a lot lighter than previous L.P's I've owned and had to give up on. In fact I don't think it's an awful lot heavier than my Custom Shop '59 Tele.
    So now I'm in Heaven. A Tele & a Les Paul.

    I have a 2010 Les Paul Jr. It's a great sounding little blues and rock&roll machine :D That P-90 really does sound sweet.

    I have a semi-homemade, not necessarily anatomically correct one

    It goes to 11, though, and has an Electrosocket just like any respectable Tele. :rolleyes: :lol:

    Last year or so it has the others collecting dust, but I sense a Tele resurgence in the near future. :cool:

    I have 2, a LP Studio and LP 50s Tribute. Unfortunately, I no longer have any Tele, so that's the next thing on my list...
