New Guitar : Vintage V100

While I love the Emperor Joe Pass I'm currently playing, I felt the need for an alternative, that is, a Les Paul-type guitar.

The Emperor sounds great, but being a hollow-body guitar, it produces quite a lot of feedback and has a rather short neck and less frets than a solid body.

Why Les Paul? I'm looking for a rounder, softer tone than, for instance, Stratocaster or Telecaster-types.

I've tried several guitars, including the Epiphone Standard line, which is pretty good, and then found this interesting deal on a Vintage V100.

Nicely built, great looks and of course, very good, warm, full sound. A bit muffled perhaps, but a wonderful creamy tone with a decent overdrive or fuzz.
