    Well, Santa was a couple of days late, but he is totally forgiven for delivery my left-handed 2018 Gibson Explorer. I keep looking over at her to make sure she is real. upload_2017-12-30_12-5-53.png upload_2017-12-30_12-6-20.png

    Three, but they did a great job of matching them up. Thank you! I have some photos using the flash and it pops the wood grain out. It's one of those that when you tilt it you can see the grain shimmer and move in the light. I scored for sure.

    That's the nicest backwards guitar I have seen in a while, congrats. I am still trying to decide if I strip the gold plating off my 2008.
