I've always considered myself a Strat AND Les Paul guy. The right tool for the job. I've consistently owned one of each most of my guitar playing life, once I could afford them. Today that changes. I have decided to trade my 2013 Historic Makeover Les Paul for an early 1957 ash-body refinished strat. I hope I won't regret it, but they don't make vintage guitars anymore and I feel like I can always get another reissue Les Paul, or one day get a conversion. I'm justifying it because I do own a '63 SG, so I won't be without a humbucker option. My buddy thinks I'm crazy, because he calls my LP a 'keeper'. I'm sure it is... wish me luck that I don't end up regretting this decision.
