    After 20 years of a long wait. After the past two years of heart ache, stress, loss, frustration, and health issues I finally said it was time to treat myself for all of it. I was graced this week with a very very nice bonus from work that was well deserved. For all of those who mocked my belief I proved you wrong. I have coming a brand new Gibson Studio Les Paul Wine Red! I have wanted this for a while now and pulled the trigger from MF. I got a great deal plus reward cash to use for my SV20 in the future! I can't wait to get her and enjoy it. It should be here Wednesday. I will post more when I get it! :hbang::dude::shred::fever::band:[​IMG]

    Keep us updated!

    PS if it arrives 4-6 weeks late, we'll finally have definitive proof that they're all made in China

    BTW, you had mentioned in another thread about getting a guitar with "defects".
    Is this LP from MF a return, blem, b-stock, or something?
    Or were you able to splurge for new-in-box?

    I could have bought a used one but none where good enough condition at the price I would pay. Nobody would budge on the price. I had a good amount to wing it and I usually get some cash for Xmas that I will put towards it as well. It was too close not to buy a new one. My buddy has the same model and he loves it too. I can't wait. I still can't believe it finally happened.
