    Yeah, that's pretty much it. I have discovered that I like humbuckers lately. The SG sounds great, the Ibanez above sounds great and the Epiphone Firebird 1 sounds great...

    I had a Hagstrom a long time ago. Forget the model but it was a semi hollow that looked like a 335

    I feel wrong sometimes for feeling the same way. I love my ltd ec401v despite all the design "flaws".

    So, that's les paul and paul, holding Paul's les paul?

    I see whatcha did there...

    I hear ya.
    Yet, with all those issues, most of us seem to have one around.

    I love the way my hand and forearm sit in relation to the bridge and strings, heightwise. Super comfortable. I wanna hate, but I cant.

    ¡ɐʎɐɹʇS,
    i'v got the same urge. My first electric was a cheap 70s Japanese Les Paul, not very nice, but I loved it. I regret selling it before I emigrated.
    It was a white one, and left handed white Gibsons or Epiphones are like chicken's teeth

    this is on Reverb, and i'm tempted - price feels a little salty and hard to swallow though.

    things a paul or other humbucker equipped guitars do that a traditionally equipped tele or strat just won't do. Best to have both.

    I feel the same way. Owned two since June of 2018 (2018 Traditional, 2019 60’s Standard) and sold or returned each one within 6 months.

    Me too. You were supposed to read the title in conjunction with the first post

    "I don't like Les Paul..."
    "...type guitars" ;)

    I bought a Les Paul Special a few months ago to see what all the fuss was about. Sold it last week to buy a new Strat.

    You have to read the thread title and first post together, then it makes more sense
