Detlef is the person who sells you a refinished '58 burst (that later on turns out to be a refinished '58 Goldtop within 1 minute of Eric Ernest looking at it) telling you it's all original and even writing authentication & cites papers about it, later on at home you realize the cream M69 rings are DMC.

I thought it would be fun to see how close the CC is to the Original it's made to copy. On mine the flame is real close but the color not so much (it could be the lighting and camera of course).

Based on your experience, would you guys say that MTM get more attention and therefore are more consistent in quality than the semi-mass-production regular Historics?

When did Gibson start selling Guitars online in their own shop. I knew they sold accessories and gear - just not 'complete' guitars.

Good to see that he’s doing well. He’s working on some really cool stuff reviving the Harmony brand and injecting life into Heritage. Edwin also hinted at some redesigns to the Heritage line.

I've always wondered why Gibson didn't do the Explorer Custom model? Because I can not afford on Gibson Custom Shop and the European M2M program didn't include Explorer, I decided to makeover my 2011 '76 Gibson Explorer.

Eric Clapton says he will continue to perform, but don't expect much: "I mean, I'm going deaf, I've got tinnitus, my hands just about work," he said. "

I always enjoy watching Mike's demos. :thumbs: Great to see him playing a Flying V ('59 parts / released early '60) in this Demo.

Just got in a 2018 Historic '59 Reissue and wanted to post my observations. All specs and parts look to be True Historic. Overall, nice guitar and nice updated appointments. And the pricing back to 2014-2016.

This feels like it's out of Spinal Tap. Didn't think I could think less of Kiss but here we are.
