    A few weeks ago I got a bad case of GAS... Found myself a 1970's Ibanez Les Paul with a maple fretboard. Replaced the pickups with the DiMarzio Titan pickups (which sound rad by the way) and replaced the tuners and bridge.

    I think I'll call her blondie :hbang:

    Man, I had a blonde/flame maple Aria LP for a long time... very similar. Loved it while I had it...

    Happy New Guitar Day!
