A number of years ago, I did some work for a friend and in thanks he gave me this Les Paul Studio he had. It is sort of an odd one, a 2007 I believe, limited edition sold at GC only, with metallic finish and brushed metal hardware. It was (and is today) in like-new condition. I played it a handful of times, one or two gigs, but when I got it was right when my most recent band stopped playing so it hasn't seen much action. I thought I would just keep it hidden for a while and give it to my son if he gets into guitar and when he's old enough to appreciate it. That decision was probably 4 years ago, so there it sits under my bed. He had been bugging me to know what was in that case under the bed, so I told him it was a spare case for my Les Paul, and the other day I took the guitar out while he wasn't looking and made a show of opening the case to find it empty so he is no longer bugging me to see what's inside. He's 9 now and getting into playing guitar - he has decided that my Les Paul is his favorite and wants to get one of his own when he gets bigger. I'm planning on giving it as a 13th birthday present if he is still into guitar, but I am really not sure how I'm going to wait that long... The picture is my LP, which was my first 'real' guitar bought with paper route and dishwashing money when I was 12 or 13, and the one that lives under the bed.
