    Just received my new acquisition today! I've been a life long Strat player and last year got my first Tele. I decided to try out a Les Paul and ordered one from Wildwood Guitars. I've been playing it for a couple of hours and I have to say I'm loving it!!
    Wildwood set it up to my specifications with my choice of strings and it plays like butter.

    I guess I can now start a thread about my new toaster and new electric razor.

    Tele forum, remember?

    At first, my eyes teared and got all itchy. I could deal with that.

    But then I got nauseous and vomited.

    I said "Don't look Ethel!" but it was too late;
    She'd already been incensed.

    My latest purchase was also a Gibson, mine is a 2016 Traditional Honey Burst. Love the gold tops too, nice...she's a beauty! Does it have 57's? The 57 is my favorite Gibson PAF pickup, the 2017's don't have them.

    Congrats. (But I still can't used to the naked pickup selector switch.)

    Very nice. I picked up one of those Tributes a couple months back. Really enjoy it. No frills and I'm a fan of the pickups.

    I don't really love playing Pauls, but something about those gold-tops I really love anyway. When I was in my late teens and early 20s, the bar my friends and I hung out at nearly every weekend (drinking age was 18 then) had a GREAT band and the guitar player played a gold top. They played mostly originals, kind of a mix of straight rock with some south of the border stuff tossed in (this was in Southern Arizona in the late 70s, so everything had some level of Mexican influence). But that guy was great - I was new to playing then and I picked up a lot watching him. And that gold top LP always had a place in my heart too. I THINK his had P90s, but it was a loooooong time ago and my memory isn't that clear from it - might have had PAFs...

    Congrats and enjoy!
