    I really like the way the necks feel on these also.I feel the same as you,this one isn't going anywhere either.

    It's a valid point isn't it? Necks still aren't right.

    I'll say that RAGS knows his Stuff .... and well at that, And much more then he talks about too. .

    The point is , Gibson has been misleading what they are selling . HHG or this other type of HG ,means nothing ,imo . But the point being , for what your paying for a TH , and Gibson is providing a breakdown of it's specs . It SHOULD be honest and correct . Even typing mistakes , should be proof read before being used in ad copy . Yes ???? It's not like it's difficult when using todays computer /programs and WORD CHECKER .

    But ,keep this in mind ,,,, The BOSS never makes mistakes . Ask him :laugh2:


    :lol: Yup, a Success , If that means you have many to choose from because they are just laying /hanging around waiting to be bought :laugh2:
    IIRC , WW has 25 ready to go .... Not as many sold ..... Success ???? I don't know about that :hmm:

    IMO , Summer time is a slow selling time but , at the OTD price , many will not pay a bust out retail price for a guitar that ,imo is marginally upgraded . And only a very few had killer (subjective and being kind) Tops .

    Even at the price I was quoted to buy 1 , I just couldn't rationalize the cost .
    At a 7K plus price tag , There are many other Fine guitars that can be considered . That come with Original Vintage pickups , that sound Better ,imo

    OK , Now back to our program about Hide glue and all it's wonderful properties :lol:


    :wave:

    Lets not forget that the original '58 to '60 bursts were not that popular.

    There was a lot of hate on the forums back then because of it.They were expensive,they had the wrong pickups in them,and they couldn't get the necks right.So they sat in the stores for years....well ..... it was terrible.

    I know, I know ... I set myself up for a smart-aleck answer.

    But If you're wiling to sell a part of your body for a guitar ... you need help.

    In any case, a nice, healthy kidney might get you TEN THs!! :naughty:

    Sell kidney online

    As for me, I think I'll do it the old-fashioned way ... :)

    Surprise! :shock: An ad campaign that is not totally honest. (but at least the THs look a little bit like those old guitars)

    Guess we'll find out. If they don't sell the prices will come down as the market dictates. And FYI, "imo" means potato in Japanese ... :)

    Indeed! But none would be a Gibson.

    Maybe we need a new thread about the properties of rhinocerous nasal mucus ... I heard that the original bursts used RNM. Gibson made up the whole HHG thing so they wouldn't have to explain the public, or the endangered species folks how they harvested this incredible tone-energizer adhesive. And all this time we thought it was the wood and stuff! :naughty:
