It was my 36th birthday on Monday and I decided to get myself a Gibson Robot Les Paul.
I couldn't find any still available in the UK so I looked at importing one from the USA but with shipping and customs charges it would have been more than £2000. I managed to find one on the German site Thomann and ordered it Sunday night. It arrived today with no customs charges (European Union) and with free delivery for £1,324 (which is €1777 or $2,597). I must admit I'm like a kid with a new toy at the moment but once I've stopped playing with it long enough I'll post a few pictures and a run through of what it can do.
I couldn't be happier if I was twins biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Cool! Seems like a good price, the standard Gibson LPs I see in the local shops over here don't ever go for less than 2000 euros, and yours is the last "Robot"model!

Looking forward for your review, I bet it must be complex to figure out how it works at first!
