    Nah, it was just a happy accident that you actually got a good one.;):eek:

    Kidding aside, that IS a beautiful guitar! Congratulations and enjoy.:)

    There's nothing like a new Lester! :D

    I loved the BB Pros in my Standard. Really versatile. HNLPD

    You know, I'm good with "happy accidents"! :thumb:

    It actually has taken me several attempts on finding the right one. So happy I finally did.

    EDITED to add: This one kind of found me, after I had quit looking.

    Thank you again for all the nice comments, it is nice to share the end result of finding the right instrument! All you guys and gals are great!

    My guitar collection is pretty much complete now. (as everyone giggles, including my wife!)

    Me - "No, I'm serious, I have completed the stable of all of the guitars that I will ever need."

    How many of us has used THAT line?

    Giggles still giggling! :D:D:D:D

    Thanks everyone!

    Sometimes,that how it goes. Hell, that's how I ended up married.:D

    While I love the look and sound of a good Les Paul in some one else's hands, I've just never been able to bond with them myself.

    And since Iommi was my main electric influence as a teen, when it comes to Gibson/Epi, I'm an SG man,myself.

    Back when I got my LP Standard, in reading up on the BB Pro pickups I saw a lot of hate toward them...folks really seemed to not like them at all!! I've grown to really like them...I can make them wail, snarl, go smooth and mellow.

    My PRS is very unhappy with me at the moment I'm sure :rolleyes:.
