    I preordered the Squier Classic Vibe '60s Esquire from Chicago Music Exchange. But in the meantime, I will be spending a little time in Goldtop Les Paul land....

    I won't exile you.

    For the first time in more than 20 years I own more acoustic guitars than telecasters (I've come back to my musical origins) and feel pretty good.

    Changing is nice, I say. Congratulations on a fine LP, looking forward to reading your New Esquire Day :)

    Exile? Tough to beat a nice Paul. Gotta love a gold top! Enjoy brother!

    I wouldn’t vote to exile you just because you played a Les Paul.

    I’d vote for exile because it’s not a P90 LP! :D

    That's like going for an oil change and leaving with a Benz.

    I won't exile you, but your spouse might.

    Thanks!!! I ordered from the Gibson Demo Shop on Reverb with a little trepidation because it was a demo and listed in good condition. But so far I am quite happy with the purchase.

    I hear you on the P90s and fully concur!
    Cheers All!

    No worries here, LP's are my favorite electric by a mile.

    I have been playing electric guitar since January 1967. I have never owned an LP. I have owned one Telecaster. I think all the bases can be covered with an LP and a Telecaster, although I prefer my Carvin with humbuckers and my Harley Benton LP JR DC with a P90.

    Cool. Is that a Tribute model? Looks like a satin finish.

    That looks like 50’s model. I purchased one in January and play it every day. Enjoy!

    No exile here! I have a kick ass one sitting in my closet. Not a gold top though.

    Goldtop on a LP is like blonde on a Tele, the best LP's are like Tele's on steroids. Sometimes I think my Goldtop is my best Tele.

    Congrats on the new Esquire and enjoy!

    Its OK. There's more than one flavor of ice cream. I've been know to partake in some LP action as well.
