    Glad to hear you got a guitar in your hands again. Fun is what it's all about. It's the primary reason I play guitar.

    I kinda dig jamming with the Honeytone. Makes things.....festive or something.

    It's a good time for you to have some damned fun.

    Very cool!! I like both guitars, epis are great imo. What is the finish of the standard 50s? A kind of cherry sunburst? Very cool indeed.
    Enjoy a lot these times!

    best regards

    Get on it Ryan. Give it a few weeks and you'll work the rust out as if you never stopped...probably sooner. The worst part is re-establishing your callouses.

    Cool I have both of those Epi's too. My Standard is the Vintage Sunburst. The Standard is solid, really nice neck pickup, not so much on the bridge. The Special though is just killer, I enjoy it every bit as much as my AO Strat that's 5x the price

    Good to hear, you're playing again., Ryan.

    Funny, I hadn't pegged you as an Epiphone guy. Nice pair ya got there.

    I love em. Have 3. Custom, Studio and this one: ES - Pro. Just replaced the Probuckers with Burstbuckers.

    Recently picked up one of those HoneyTones too, for field testing purchases/sales. Fun little amp. But I play that ES through this bad boy...

    Rock on Ryan!
