Hey everyone just got back from a guitar shop here in Perth, Australia. Yes, I now have in possession an ______________. Thats right, I'm going to leave the suspense for now, As I have an epic tale to tell, well, no so epic.

Anyway, about a week ago I emailed the head of the guitar department of my favorite local guitar store. I asked him what they have in stock in the high-middle end range. He replied with the general Les Pauls and SGs. Also, to my delight was a ___________.\

Having seen this I decided instantly to go and try it out, especially as it way 33% off, a crazy discount.

So, the next morning I awoke with glee ready for the day of guitar buying that presumably lay ahead of me. At about 10 am I heard a message that was left on my phone at 2 am in the morning from the Police. Oh no!

They had found my car, which had not long before been fully detailed, as a burned out wreck miles away. OH SHIT!

Not long after I also notice my wallet which I keep by the front door was missing!



So, after another 4 days I now have a new, insurance funded car and some cash from the bank three days before Christmas. Time to go guitar shopping.

*Drumroll*

I have in my possession a 2007 Epiphone Les Paul Standard plain top Limited Edition Custom Shop Cherry with a Bigsby which was made as number 9000 in March. OVER 9000 BABY!

Enjoy the photos.

It was pretty damn busy, I'm happy with what I got, Epiphone Les Paul Custom with Bigsby for a mere $800, compared to the $1300 retail price.
