    There's an EP Les Paul Florentine nearby for $325. The used ones on eBay or Reverb go for over $400. So it could be worth flipping or keeping. Anyone have experience with these?

    The serial number indicates April 2014, Samick, Indonesia.

    One of the few LP's that I'd trip over myself to get a good deal on and the man asks if it's keepable....

    If it wasn't of the clownburst, I'd be tempted. Not a great deal, but a good price.

    I'd prefer the Merlot or whatever they called it myself, but the sunburst is growing on me.

    I'm going to pass. The clownburst isn't a big draw for me and the time I'll spend flipping it would be better spent improving my playing ability on the guitars I already have. I think I got worked up by finding a decent deal on Craigslist.

    Well you do seem to be the grammar policeman of the forum.

    Pfft. I just dislike txtspk. We're not a bunch of teenage girls texting each other in class. A couple extra taps / keystrokes so as to look minimally literate aren't going to hurt anyone.

    I'm on a friggen Kindle the bulk of the time and I don't resort to that crap. As for stuff like busting @Stuart 's huevos about "yoghurt" or something it's all in fun.

    Yeah I get it. I'm also a fan of complete sentences.

    Man I miss Ernest P. Worrell/Jim Varney. I still watch Ernest Saves Christmas every December, but my fav will always be Ernest Goes to Camp.

    I was always partial to Ernest Goes to Jail.

    I always thought they would end up ending the series with 'Ernest Goes to Hell' directed by Rob Zombie.

    Exactly where was this ‘text speak’ you refer to @Raiyn?

    ... & I post off a phone, so what’s the repetitious hooha about posting off a Kindle about girlfriend???

    Argh, I see...

    & if Ernest was to play a LP with f holes whilst sipping on a Merlot that would be three things I would gladly never see again sorted in one go :facepalm:
