    One of the last of the 2013s. I looked at the beautiful lefty R9 at the HOG yesterday. I didn't think to ask Curt at the time, but I think it's what Gibson is calling a "Transitional", meaning it's built to 2014 specs, but with a 2013 serial number. Either way, it's a winner!

    I did the same thing on my Shanks (post #747). The MSSC knobs are a big upgrade IMO. Yours looks great!

    I would like to buy a CC #7 shanks soon. any of you know if the truss rod is without tubing? on the official Gibson site is written "traditional" truss rod in the specs.
    also says it has all the updates of 2013, but does not mention the new 2013 truss rod assembly..
    Can you help me to clarify this misunderstanding?
    greetings from italy
