So I get a text this afternoon from my Evil Axe Pimp's minion:
First a picture, followed by this -
"Hey Bob. This is Lexx at Sam Ash. Danny said you'd want to see the new Ace Frehley we got in. Isn't she Georgeous"
As if anyone needs friends like that. So I bolt to my local Sam Ash to find this:
It's in the glass. However, they get it out. It's just flippin' beautiful.
Obviously they don't just let everyone paw this thing. But I'm not everyone.
So I play it for a while. Buttah - Just pure buttah. Feels awesome, has the resonance. Richlite board feels great. Eventually it ends up pluged into a Blackstar. Les Paul, Super distortions (all wired up, by the way - middle/bridge sounds really good), and a Blackstar. Ahhhh. I rip through some classics. The first song ever played on this guitar - Shock Me, of course.
It's $2200 - and they are doing 18mo financing. The pain is very intense guys.
Now, I don't know if any of you have ever excperienced the smell of a brand new case fresh Les Paul. It's an amazing scent. Hypnotic, captivating, sexy, inviting. I'll never forget the smell. Christmas 1979 doesn't smell like nutmeg and cinnamon to me. It smells like new Les Paul.
I got i the car and turned the radio to go home - after an hour of looking, sniffing, discussing, playing plugged/unplugged.
Shout It Out Loud is playing (destroyer version).
help me - I'm weak. Also, see the Aceman wants to sell some coins thread in soundoff.
