Don't really "need" another guitar, have a bunch. I just look at Gibsons with the notion of one being a good addition to the collection...just never like the feel of them so one hasn't made it in... Hmmm...Gretsch...

Les Pauls are all too heavy these days and have been for a number of years. I'm told that if you are known to the custom shop they'll find some light Honduran mahogany for you but for the likes of us it's the African **************** all the way.
I love Les Pauls but I _usually_ only play sitting down (horribly bad back) and my leg goes to sleep if I put a 10 lb+ axe on it. Plus, I like guitars with tummy cuts. My strat is still my most comfortable guitar to play.
The Epiphone Ultra has actually caught my eye. MIK for $500 and has a tummy cut and is chambered. Weighs in at 6 lbs. It also has a narrower 42mm neck which my small mitts love.

Gotta agree, I just have never found one that I really liked the feel of. They all have very screwy balance.
I'd like to be your friend, but you keep locking me out of your house.
