However it’s fallen into no man’s land now I have some other guitars.

Should I sell this?
I vaguely remember the build thread of this, epic.

No, sell your “other guitars”.
Well if I didn’t buy an actual Gibson I could probably afford to keep it. There’s another motive here which might need some explaining, around 10 years ago I had to sell my favourite Les Paul Standard to keep the mortgage paid (young family etc) which id do again in a heart beat if needed. however I said to wife I’d love to buy another actual Gibson (or other higher end guitar) back by the time im 40, and we all agreed if we could afford to that’s what I’d do. So there’s a little bit of me that might not be satisfied if I didn’t get the real thing in the next year.
Here’s a pic of that Les Paul and a much younger thinner me!
You need the Telebird gone; you've just told us why. That's what I think.

Now; blowing all my credibility, I could imagine pushing the possibilities of the Tele and ending up there. And thinking about it causes tumescence. I'd love to play that!

After playing with all my guitars back to back today a few things became apparent, my Custom hollow body Jag is inspiring and feels alive to play, and it’s even more alive after the stainless steel fret job recently! my Tele/Firebird is also a great guitar which has a nice fat neck and very easy to play, let alone the vast array of tones achievable with such a versatile guitar. I don’t think I can part with it.
Might have to keep saving or dial back my expectations to a Les Paul copy maybe.

Anyone have first experience with the Vintage V100?

Don’t settle for a copy, even if it means missing the 40th mark.

Yeah. I had the Peter Green one. It's fine/ok-ish... but, if your mind is set on a high end guitar, or even a certain headstock, don't go there. I found it uninspiring. It does kinda imply my inspiration may come from different sources than yours, but I suspect they're somewhat similar. I suspect you may as well wait for the right one for you.

Also, my Vintage one was a proper boat anchor. The Titanic would not have needed an iceberg to sink it if it had one of these!

Hmm yeah I was wondering if they are all
Heavy or it’s just the ones I’ve tried but sounds like it’s all of them. Think I might keep saving or pursue the custom build option.

yeah I had the greeny, found it to be quite good. Didn't keep it though so not that good... don't have any memory of it other than I had it for awhile.

My new (to me) LP however, looks great! I've flipped the magnet and turned the pup around full on Hammet LP stylez! Wish I could play it for longer than 20 mins.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

Good to hear you’re keeping the Tele. Gotta keep the good ones. That Jag is next level
