Now the ultra-careful will note that that is NOT a 1957 Les Paul I’m playing in the picture. It’s a ’61 or a ’62, I can’t remember.
What it is, is a $57,000 Les Paul. AUGH!
For some reason Heather refuses to let me take the company credit card into music stores…
I can’t blame her, but…yeah. Nice.
There is *no way* you would get me to even touch that guitar. I’d want to, but can’t afford to sell my house to pay for it.
Technically, on that specific day, because of IndieGoGo, I could have replaced it if I’d broken it. The depth of excrement I’d be in, though… the guys at Willy’s American Guitars were super cool about it though. When I was done, they asked if I wanted to play the *expensive* one.
I do love Willie’s…wait…when were you in MSP to play that?!?
Cause she is a wise wise Woman
For about 100x the cost of the guitar in my profile pic, I would at least hope that I’d make 0.01x the mistakes that I make now.
Let’s work on a nice 4 figure Lester for you first, shall we? But, I like the way you think!
The Spousal Unit went to Willie’s American Guitars, but all I got was a messenger bag with the store logo.
Robin, was it $57,000??
@Keith, if I paid $57,000 for a guitar I’d at least want what I heard in my head to unfailingly come out on said guitar. Of course, if I could afford it, that would probably be because that happened already.
Nope, not $57,000. It’s pretty useful for wandering around music festivals in the summer.
but sometimes you have to make sacrifices for art 🙂 DOESN’T SHE UNDERSTAND THAT !? 😛
Fripp comes to mind… Frampton? Nice axe! Buy it!
