If I see something out of the ordinary, and it’s priced right I try and grab it. My friend has a ’94 Epiphone Les Paul Special double cutaway that he bought new. I haven’t seen it in years. But he had a gig where he wanted to play something out of the ordinary so he pulled it out of the closet. It sounded sweet and I fell in love with it. I knew he’d never part with it. But a few weeks later I find one on Craigslist. I did some research and the only other one I could find for sale on line was one that sold over a year ago. They’re kind of hard to find since Epiphone doesn’t make them anymore. So I contacted the seller. We agreed on a price and I got myself a 1998 Epiphone Les Paul Special double cutaway. Today I was looking online and I came across an Epiphone ’58 reissue Korina Flying V. Again I did some research and the ones I could find were $100 more that what the seller was asking. I took a half day off and went and bought the Flying V. So now I have 9 guitars and 4 basses…and no gigs! Haha! I’ve also picked up a few Gibson Les Pauls along the way. I traded my B.C. Rich for a 2012 Les Paul Studio and I bought two gold tops. A 2014 Gibson Les Paul Futura and a 2013 Gibson Les Paul 50’s tribute.
