Been playing since September... and I'm getting pretty good now. Used to think I didn't have a musical bone in my body, but I'm working very hard at the rythym (it's definitely not natural for me), and I think I'm finally getting it!

And what does one Gibson Les Paul cost these days? Being a drummer, I'm not up on the $$$$ for guitars....
It depends on the specific model, but the ones I'm looking at are around $1,000.
I have a buddy who's got a Les Paul, green/yellow sunburst with gold hardware, that he spent $4,500 on.
Holy Schmoly! $4500!? Hopefully he's playing in a band and putting it to good use!
He doesn't, unfortunately. His 'auditioned' for our band years ago, but his style, which was more blues oriented, didn't quite mesh with ours, which was more rock oriented. Kind of wish we would have just made it work. He is an amazing guitarist, but I don't believe he's ever played a party or show. Just loves to play. Yeah, I don't know why you'd spend that kind of money on a guitar if you're not going to show it off.
I had to help my daughter make a musical instrument for school this week, so we made a glockenspiel. It turned out pretty well, but instead of string I made a wood base for it to sit on. Some of the larger tubes sound a bit dull, but the smaller ones have good tone. For a one-hour project with no experience, it turned out pretty well.

Are you sure you tried to search, well, did you? Not as much turn out as this one
I played the trombone back in high school. I still have it sitting around somewhere but haven't played it in years.
