It's an Epiphone, but it's my first guitar other than a Telecaster from the 60's that my grandfather gave me before he died. I can play a bass, but I can't play a guitar very well at all. I like the Les Paul sound, and it seemed like a good beginner's guitar. I couldn't get the picture to show it's beauty, so this pic doesn't do it justice. Its finish is really glossy, but it looks flat in the photo...

I figured you must have tucked away your martial arts videos and Slayer cd's before the photo. :P

Great looking guitar. What color is the Telecaster you have?

Thanks! I know it's a low end Les Paul, but it really sounds nice.

The Telecaster is kind of a yellowish-cream color with a black pickguard. I don't get it out much because of the sentimental significance, but he always took really good care of his things, so it's in prime condition.

Very nice guitars. I fell in love with Les Pauls when I was in college. My roommate played a Custom very similar to Goon's, except it was left-handed. Even playing it left handed, I knew what a great instrument it was.

I bought a Les Paul Standard for my wife several years ago. I like my Charvel Jackson Model 5 better though.

I was raised on the "Les Paul" and I've only recently started acquiring guitars of other shapes and styles: among them are Strats, PRS Custom and Soapbar II, and a Schecter C-1 E/A semi-hollowbody.

KEEP ROCKING MAN!!!
