Ever have two guitars that when you got them you just felt like they were made for you? These are my two favorite non Fenders. The Les Paul is a Traditional Pro that I've had a few years. I've owned a few Les Pauls over the years (both Gibson and Epi) but they've come and gone. When this one, a heavily modded neck repaired Epi, came my way that was it. I'm not saying it's better than the Gibsons. I'm just saying it has something unexplainable that appeals to me. It's my Les Paul and it's never leaving me. The other is an ES335 Pro. I got this one recently in a trade and got the same vibe. I'm glad I have this pair. I have a few others but these are lifers. Thanks for looking. If anyone wants to share some of what they consider "lifers" or guitars you'll have forever. New or old, please do.
