finally.... the Epiphone Les Paul Jr. is finished and at home. The tech at Broken Guitars set it up perfect. https://www.brokenguitarsoakland.com/ I tried it out at the store, job well done! The Neck is not what I an used to (fender necks) so years of muscle memory need to be expanded for the larger neck. I like it because not only do I have big feet 13/ EEEEE , big hands xlr. gloves don't fit so well (big hands/big feet = BIG SOCKS /BIG GLOES ) All kidding aside I really didn't have any expectations regarding the build of the guitar, so the first time I really took a close look and played a little. Going to the shop and back did me in for the day,, the post "that which can not be mentioned" symptom of easily being fatigued is still here but is slowly receding. I had forgot how long I wanted a L.P. Jr. what has it been 40 years? I feel like xmas , birthday, May Day (Beltane ), Saint Lazarus' day ( Papa Legba day) all rolled into one has arrive. I know it's just the material world and everything passes , just like everything and everybody and yet it's a rush. Obviously I am still attached to my desires. Speaking of which while I was at Broken Guitars checking out the guitar I tried out a pedal, Catlinbread's Dirty Little Secret through the antique Marshall solid state with sounded harsh but very clean, enter the Dirty Little Secret and presto-chango, shazam! Suddenly every thing sounded A O.K.. Used pedal with about33% off list. Now I know what people were talking about when they spoke well of this pedal.
