After very careful consideration (and after many curses against the European prices VS the American on guitars), I have decided that I won’t get a new guitar.
Apparently my heart belongs to my adored Les Paul and I cannot buy any other guitar that doesn’t reach that level of playability & looks.
And since my budget was “only” 400 Euros, I’d rather spend them on something else.
For the history, my 2 choices were:
Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster (60s)
Both of them are great guitars for their values, but I guess I’m a mono-guitarist. (until I hit the jack-pot!)
