    I'm not familiar with that model but I googled images of it and it's a beauty. Congrats on your NGD!

    Hey, Marky, thanks for the feel. This Washburn plays as well as my Gibsons. Seems there are some top quality guitars & amps out there that just don't market aggressively enough to gain high visibility. Guild is an example. And Epiphone, mainly a lower-end student line, makes some excellent pro guitars.

    BTW, "NGD"...?

    NGD is short for New Guitar Day. I'm having bad GAS (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome) and have been looking at Epiphones. Gotta love these acronyms. Lol

    That shape is a little like your Blueshawk isn’t it?

    Thanks, Marky and Quill. Yeah, it's a BluesHawk shape and size with ergonomic carves back & front. It's about 8 lbs., heavier than the BluesHawk but lighter than most Les Pauls. The tone control actually rolls the tone from pure humbucker through the subtle mixes with single coil, to the pure single coil tone. Instead of the either-or of a coil tap.

    Now I'm hunting an amp, the Washburn Southside VGA 30 made about the same time and also in limited numbers.

    Hi, Marky. If I can offer a suggestion... the Gibson Les Paul Special with two P90s is a very good guitar. Epiphone makes em but I bet you can find a good used Gibson on Ebay...the '80s through 2014 models are sellin between $450 and $750. I got mine with OHSC for $700 and it's a great guitar.

    Hi BluesHawk, thanks for your suggestion but, on Friday, I pulled the trigger on a 2017 Gibson SG Standard HP from Sweetwater. I sold my old SG Standard for nearly what I paid for it and my son threw in $200 as a surprise so my out-of-pocket didn't break the bank. I will be getting it delivered by Fed Ex Ground this Thursday. I am really looking forward to it.

    Whew, nice. Brand new one! I've always liked the way SGs play. What color is it?
