    Well, if you had suggested this to me even as little as a month ago, I would have thought you were on crack. BUT, the thought has been crossing my mind more and more lately.

    Namely, thinking of selling/trading my EVH towards a Les Paul...

    Anybody have a good feel for going prices these days? Mine is sunburst, serial #89something, I think. All original except, of course, for the pickup switch. A few dings on the back and a dirty neck, but otherwise fully functional. Maybe a 7.5-8/10? I don't expect to "cash in" at all, but it would be nice if it could fully fund a new LP standard...

    dunno man, i think you should keep the EVH. i by no means have any authority when it comes to the guitar world, but i think the fact that you have one is good reason not to let it go. but hey, i'm kinda sentimental. if i had one, i'd prolly sleep with it.

    If it were me I'd hang onto it bro. Those things are going to do nothing but increase in value.

    Pauls are a dime a dozen and if you have some patience you should be able to score one for a good deal.

    EVH as in MusicMan EVH ?? my thoughts are to take your head, place it in a door jam and have someone that really hates you slam the door on it for an hour or of coarse there is always the glass rod up the penis hole trick

    oh did I say my opinion was not to do it ?

    Yea I agree with Rol and the guys on this one, and if you be patient bro you might be able to find a Les Paul on ebay for a good price. I got mine a few months back for $450. It's a fuckin work horse and a beautiful cherry sunburst. So keep lookin and i'm sure you can find a good price for a Les Paul and not give up your EVH.

    Before I go thinking you should kill yourself (take the pill), I'm curious of your motivation of why this is on your mind lately? What are your reasons for wanting to sell the EVH for the LP? You could have some valid one's in which case I'd say sell but then again, you seem to have some regrets for selling the Budda, are you ready for the regret of selling the Sunburst?

    I don't know, my thought is pretty much

    I don't mean to get off topic, but 3Piece, that was $450 for a GIBSON Paul? Or an Epiphone?
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!

    Thanks for all the input, guys (except I almost stopped reading at the 'glass rod up the penis hole' part! [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img] ). My thinking right now is that I'll do my best to finance a new LP without selling the EVH. I *know* that an LP is in my future...it might just have to wait a bit. What brought it on is that I picked up an SG (my first ever Gibson or even remotely Gibson-style guitar, aside from one PRS) and I really, really, really dig it. That and, as much as I love the EVH, playing it always seems to put me in the rut of just playing VH licks or at least that style of music, which I'm not into as much these days. Ahh well...

    It's easy to understand falling into rut, but what you have is a little peice of VH history.
    Like the guys say, and I'm sure you know, there are really very few of these guitars out there.
    Even though EBMM says the axis is "the next step", this is the "original" with Ed's design and signature on the headstock.
    Also, since you checked out an SG an decided you wanted a Les Paul, you might want to play a paul cause the necks and sound aren't alike.

    Ratter, I'll take it off your hands for $200. It sounds beat to shit - a new pick-up switch!, a dirty neck! Jeez, you'll be lucky to get $100 bucks for that piece of crap. I'll extend a helping hand and give you an extra $100 just because you had the courtesy to come to this board and ask us for advice.
