Les Paul, among other things...

I wanna buy a Les Paul. The classic/standard kind. Goldtop looks cool. Also normal sunburst-y.

Just one problem. TOO FREAKING EXPENSIVE!!! It's like $2000 at least, from what I've been seeing online... don't want no stupid melody maker... although, the blue vixen looks pretty cool, but that's still like a grand... perhaps in a few more years...

My church has a Les Paul. It's very nice....

Man, I stayed up 'til like 6:30am looking up this Les Paul stuff.

Well, that, and listening to a whole bunch of so-called third-wave emo... and, yeah, they SUCK.

Hawthorne Heights: SUCKS.
Taking Back Sunday: SUCKS.
Dashboard Confessional: SUCKS. Well, for the most part... annoying wispiness...
Finch: SUCKS. Although, not as hard as the others... I can actually see myself liking them someday... but for now, SUCKS... ... ...actually, I take that "someday" comment back. Too whiney/screamy pop-vocally annoying...


Hmm... perhaps I get horribly blunt at 7am... SUCKS, heheh... not usually that strongly opinionated, I don't think... but no matter...

That being said, I still like Death Cab for Cutie. And earlier, 90's emo, i.e. Sunny Day Real Estate, Jimmy Eat World... and yeah, I also kinda like Fugazi, however strange they are, but yeah they're more influential-to-emo than emo... Man, I so should've been born like a decade earlier...

Anyways, for the last bit of this post, I found some uber-nostalgia from my grade 10... although, beware, as it's pretty vulgar... and, you know, probably not relevant to like 95% of the people who read my blog... but no matter... Azn Pride, yo...

Until next time, I guess...

Might I recommend an Epiphone Les Paul? They're the cheaper equivalent to the Gibson. Not as great quality, obviously, but they go for around $700 I believe. Some are even cheaper, but be careful of the really cheap ones (they suck bad).

Wow, I was JUSt gonna type what Jamieson posted, like nearly word for word. :P But yeah...Gibson Les Pauls are where the major bling is spent (and rightfully so, they kick ass), but Epiphones are pretty rad for way cheaper.

And I agree with your band choices though I don't know enough about FInch to say they suck, only one song. And Taking Back Sunday I only know one song as well, but it isn't half bad.

Wow, long comment for Justin. Wooo.

Yeah. They're actually owned by Gibson. So they're the only other company that can actually call their guitars "Les Paul".
