I’m still practicing. Still playing. Still trying S-L-O-W-L-Y to get better. I’m making progress, but it’s slow coming along.
My guitar collection has grown by two since my last update. Two more used, cheap Epiphone guitars have joined the family.
I found a lower end Epiphone SG. He was in Arvada, Colorado. I named him Orfeo which means darkness and night. I thought he had a cool, kind-of Batman like vibe going on.
Then I found this guy in Manhattan. He’s an Epiphone Les Paul SL. I bought him because he was funky and colorful. I thought the pick guard was unique. I posted pictures to a Facebook Epiphone owners group I belong to, and several obnoxious men on there told me he was “ugly”. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I named him Motley (not because of the Crue) but because he’s a motley collection of colors. He even has colored ball ends on his strings (research tells me these are D’Addario strings).
All of my guitars save the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro were less than $100. That’s okay. They all get played, and I love them all.
