Clearly you missed the sarcasm. I was looking for a small-print font for "Yeah, right," but there wasn't one, so I left it out. If you have to save for it, then save for it and buy it when you have the money. Don't be financially irresponsible, but get it if you want it. Eggman, you didn't buy the right Les Paul for you, plain and simple. Some of them are boat anchors and some aren't. Rhh7, that's a ridiculous reason to not buy a Les Paul. If the neck was a flawed design, then nobody should buy an acoustic guitar for the same basic reason, right? I'm not even gonna touch the Ed Roman "wisdom."
