    just picked one up the other day in Ocean Blue great guitar was really surprised
    By the quality. Will probably put the Grover Keystone Locking Tuners on it. Plays
    Great and sounds great use .008 strings was surprised low action no fret buzz.

    The Traditional Pros are my favorite in the Gibson/Epiphone lineup.

    Great pickups, Grover tuners, open pore back of neck and body, plenty going for them.

    There's been some hefty price increases the past year but prior to that the 1's and 2's were in a regular SDOTD rotation on MF for $299-$329.

    Should of bought one in each color for those prices.

    Ended up with a goldtop Pro 1 and a desertburst Pro 2.

    The color combination looks great. The dark back and binding go well with the pickups and pickguard. Wouldn't mind adding that to the collection.

    Fender's Classic Vibe Strat and Tele make it hard to justify the prices of the Corona, CA offerings and the same can be said of Epi's these days vs. the Nashville products.

    I had a Gibson Studio for get what model and it was a gorgeous guitar $1100 used
    Couldn’t bond with it didn’t play that well. I feel the Traditional Pro 2 plays way better.
    I like it a lot. I agree with the Fender comment I have a MIM Strat put locking tuners,
    Seymour Duncan Hot Rail In bridge and a white Pearloid pickguard On it And love it.

    DA8BE674-2CCE-4C5D-9D4A-66FF20E6AE5D.jpeg Well took Traditional Pro Back. Got Limited Edition LP Custom Pro. Traditional was causing me a little miscomfort because of thick neck. Tried out the slim taper neck on Custom and was allot better. So I got the Custom in Silver Burst MF had it on sale for $499.99 instead of $679.99 and GC honered it. Put .009s on it set bridge height set intonation and truss rod adjustment and it plays and sounds fantastic. Sweet Guitar.
    Thanks
