Bourbon Burst in color, purchased from Sweetwater. I doubt I can do this justice, being a poor guitarist - but I'm going to make the effort and I've wanted a real Les Paul for decades.

Nice! You even got a standard... I am saving up for a studio. It will be guitar number 5 and my last guitar. I want a real Gibson LP.

Very nice, but I detected a critical flaw right off the bat: it’s right handed. Was the seller aware of this flaw when he foisted this useless (to me) guitar off on you? :lol:

Andy, in case you havent get some ernie ball strap locks. I have dropped several guitars until I changed out the standard mounts for strap locks. Nice strap also. I like that.

The first thing I thought when I saw the strap was that it looked like a rifle sling. :lol:

I wanted a strap on it that looked distressed and kinda Dystopian/gun-related - LM Products' Odin Viking strap, by the way.

I have Schaller locks, just hadn't installed them when I took that pic first - but yep, excellent advice :thumbs2: The Studio model you're going for is just as good - doesn't have the fancy binding around the edge is about all, so it's great value.
