Good timely thread for me.
I start lessons next week, haven't really played since I was 17 yrs. old (almost 30 years ago). Pulled out my ancient, no-name acoustic and the action was about 1/2" high, and the neck is seperating from the body. I was planning on using that for the lessons, but that's out now so it was a good excuse to pick up this. It plays and sounds like a dream, so much better than the $25 electric I had in high school. It's an Epiphone LP Standard, the prices on the Gibsons are just rediculous.
I'll probably try to remove and reset the neck on the old acoustic, more for sentimental reasons than anything.
It feels good to play again, even though my finger don't remember the stuff from 1983. It'll come back though.
