Some days we swoon.


Fretted Americana now has two, count 'em, two drop-dead gorgeous Gibson Les Paul Standard 'Bursts to offer to those serious about acquiring the best of the best, the creme de la creme.


"Gladys" is a '59. "Lucky" is a '60. Both are rated 9, Exceptionally Fine. Each possesses a three-alarm flame; their finishes are on fire. They sound like flame throwers with strings.


We've put them close together in the vault with the lights out. We have our fingers crossed that nine months from now Gladys, having gotten Lucky, will give birth to a baby 'Burst as bodacious as its parents. If it's a girl, we'll name it Ginger, as in hot and spicy. If it's a boy, we'll name it Luke, as in Cool Hand. Given the slim to no chance that they will reproduce we should be so lucky. Or Gladys.
