My son Miles likes your guitar. "Daddy," he exclaimed, "that looks like a Les Paul!"
Miles got it right - it does look like a Les Paul, but It's actually an imitation. I have a very expensive guitar but I needed a backup in case a string broke during a set. As so often happens, the inexpensive backup is now my favorite. The trouble for me with real Les Pauls is that they weigh a ton. The sustain is derived from a very dense body. This one is a lighter version for the Lighter Notes.
I thought the head and the "fin" didn't look quite right. Maybe the body is slightly smaller, not just less dense?Anyway, still a lovely instrument.Did I mention Miles is three years old (it's a real fine way to start)? He already recognizes famous players such as Clapton, David Gilmour and Jimmy Page. (Daddy I want to see Jimmy Page playing the double-neck Gibson!). The stratocaster is his favorite, though Murray of the Wiggles plays a telecaster. He can explain that Jimi Hendrix plays the Strat upside down because he's left-handed.He's absolutely guitar crazed and is the youngest air guitar expert I've ever seen. How do they just know how to do that?
They make small electric guitars for kids now, so perhaps you should look into it. It could save you a fortune in college tuition.
