FDP Forum / The Lefty Forum / I should not have visited Sam Ash yesterday

I just relocated to southwest Florida, and I am still learning where things are.
I found a Sam Ash yesterday, and of course I had to check it out. The selection of left handed guitars was limited (as usual), but they did have three that I have been lusting after.

1. Silver Burst Gibson Les Paul Studio 70's Tribute
2. Epiphone Casino
3. Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro (I owned one, but sold it)

Of course, I don't have the money for any of them right now, which makes it worse!

Tony, I spent an afternoon at Jerry's when I was over in Florida two years ago. I had previously purchased my Collings 290 and Huss & Dalton OM Custom from Jerry.

It's not what you might expect as it is a one man operation off the beaten track. However, he has a great little showroom, which if memory serves me right is about half the size of Southpaws..

I was looking at dreadnoughts that day and played several Collings, Bourgeois, Huss & Daltons, and Larrivees. Had my eye on a Bourgeois until I got back home and found out that I needed to replace my HVAC.

Check out these videos made by Shane of "In The Blues".

Well, my girlfriend, her grandson and I went to the Florida Aquarium and Tampa Museum of Art today. I did not know she also had a stop at a Sam Ash planned for us(me). They had at least a dozen left handed guitars, including three Les Paul Studio 70's Tributes, each in a different color scheme. She then shocked me by offering to front me the money if I found one I liked. As I mentioned, I have been out of work since March, but I just signed a contract to sell my house in Ohio. The closing date is next month. I ended up getting the 70's Tribute in Vintage Sunburst ($599).

LOL! All in good time. I didn't want to press my luck!
My real worry is, I am only about 40 miles from Jerry's Lefty Guitars!

I'm about 15 miles from Southpaw Guitars, but no longer have a reason to shop there.
