Another new toy.

Found this sweetie yesterday. A nice 1962 Les Paul Jr. Just like my 63 SG Jr but this one says Les Paul on the headstock.
Posted on Tue., Apr. 25, 2017 - 8:50 AM


 

Geez. What does a Strat or a Les Paul normally weigh?

Tue., Apr. 25, 2017 - 10:22 AM

I have had Strats from 7 lbs to 9 lbs and Lesters from about 7.5 all the way to a 13lb 1980 Deluxe.

Tue., Apr. 25, 2017 - 10:46 AM

13 pounds!!!! Bring your chiropractor to your gigs.

Wait a second... is that two SGs in as many days?

Fri., Apr. 14, 2017 - 1:42 AM

Yeah a few more to come if I can whittle the price down on them. Kind of liking the weight, must be age.

New 61 SG

This 61 is absolutely mint and plays and sounds as good as it looks. Had to pony up and pay a bit more than I wanted to for it but sometimes ya just gotta pay!

Ha! I'll pay for guitars but pay to play is not in my vocabulary. You definitely had a great comeback there!
