    Cool, I hear a lot of talk about guitars that weigh a lot less so tbh I wasn't sure about that. Thanks for weighing in on that.

    Stunning. Granted it's at an odd angle, but that board looks beautiful.

    Thanks you guys. Curt said I can expect that the colour will be a lighter shade of yellow. I like the way it looks in the pictures but a bit more like lemon would be cool. I wish they had shown the board in the pictures. Here's one more. LPR59PSL12178B        #98170     v4.jpg

    Wow, I'm really glad you got that straightened out. I'm surprised by this. I'm praying I don't see anything like this on mine.:eek2:

    Thanks for the great pictures!

    That's beyond unacceptable.

    Very very nice. Does anyone have an opinion about how these 2018 Brazilians compare to the run of Brazilian Historics that Gibson did in 2003?

    Absolutely Gorgeous.
    But lets also be reminded that Gibson has completely forgotten what an accurate "Vintage Reissue" is in their quest to pump out as many guitars as possible.

    The bent bridge posts could be from shipping damage.

    I thought the practice of 'hammering' the notches in the bridge saddles had been abandoned. :hmm:

    Nope, no way that happened from shipping...............the posts have crimp marks from pliers.

    Not the first time I have seen this.

    C did a great repair job though & it led to an improvement using Mark's Creamtone parts.

    :cheers2:

    Both the lemon and the cherry are just awesome. Although I am not a huge lemon fan, that top has it all - grain, grain spots, and a great burst! Wowza! The cherry on top is the Braz board; I wish I could make the numbers work for that! I AM very happy for you - happy wonderful NGD! All 3 of the posted ones!

    The 17/18's vary some also but I think Gibson is more concerned with the quality with this run than they were in the '03 run of Brazilians.
