    I only have a pic of the back of it, so won't bother, but my best guitar ever was a 1999 Epi Les Paul. I don't know how or why, but it just float my boat. It looked amazing being a heritage cherry and had tone to die for. At the time I also had a 2000 Black Beauty, the 3 pickup custom, and it didn't feel or sound near as good. The Epi got virtually all of the play time while the BB got sold. Sadly, I lost the Epi in the fire here in 2011 along with another Epi and a Gibson LP. That guitar was still the best of the 3! I might have tried to save it but it got soaked in thousands of gallons of water and had the ceiling fall on it besides, though my Behringer amp took most of the blow. I think I could spend a lifetime trying Gibsons and Epis and never find another one like it. An accident in manufacturing, I'm sure, maybe a miswound pickup...dunno. I pick up my $2700 quilted LP and still wish I had that Epi. Even the color was superior to what's coming out these days. Certainly not a clown burst! -Rod-

    That looks awesome! Since mine is pretty much destroyed, I'll probably experiment with some different stuff. I'll never get it's original tone again, so might as well play around with her! :hbang:

    Makes revenge start to look good....but that only breeds more trouble. I'm sorry you had to go through that dude. That's almost as bad as someone raping your girl.

    I think this is why some Les Pauls are ten pounds, hard to swing but when they connect POW.

    No, it was a different man. I don't give people second chances like that. Mess up my expensive (and very loved) gear, and it is OVER.

    Lesson learned: TRUST NO ONE. :squint:
