Looks like it is an artist guitar, not a CC........
the official nod from the board room!
It needed to be a CC model.
thanx for posting
What's the diff between artist model and CC? I'm lost in all the 2015 vernacular.
The relicking on this one looks great. Really looks '59ish......
An Artist signature makes more money than a CC...
An Artist Signature is based upon Who Played it on what record/tour/who the artist is, they do 50 units Aged and signed at $13000 a crack, 50 units Just Aged and Not signed, at $10000, and maybe 150 units VOS finished with COA and case stuff related to the run. at about $7000, (all prices are going up)
A Collectors Choice Model is based upon the guitar itself, not really who owns it, (but a name can be mentioned) or they will use the bursts pet name like "sandy"
those are supposed to have been measured, the neck profiles, the weights, the top carve are all supposed to mimick the actual burst, and the owner gets to approve or dissaprove the prototype before the run starts. Thease are usually aged to be an exact copy of the original, including similar tops and woods. Case candy that is model appropriate. these will have runs in the 300's
there endless arguments as to the quality and actual measurements, wood quality etc etc....pickups and electroncs
can differ as well.
clear it up for you ?
My CC7 is a special guitar, A CC is a better deal if your at all interested. the artist runs are about the Rock Star that owned it.
New vintage finish?
Well after reading the ad it looks like NO aged and unsigned,
they went for the throat on this one.
50 aged and sigend, 250 Vintage finish...or what ever.
That is the original 59 in the ad...not the cs
they said "thinner" nitro,
Pasticizer; the nitro is probably formulated by their supplier...
Thanks. That's great. Does that mean the artist guitars are not an exact replica? I thought all the other guitar associated with a person had exact measurements taken.
Construction wise it is measured and made just like the CC's. The only difference between the Artist and CC runs is the Artist models have some that are signed. Most Artist models will usually have a VOS run along with the aged and/or aged/signed. CC's usually just have one version available even though a few of the CC's have had some VOS versions also.
"obsessive level of detail"
All previous Artist runs were just half assed.
I also see it says in the description "hide glued top". How is that accurate when hide glue was not used on the Original Bursts tops? I've also heard hide glue is not a great glue to use for tops. Not sure how true that is??
Good for Ace, he gets to at least have a really nice reproduction of his old guitar. That would be a nice feeling...
Even if that is the original - awesome top. Will be interesting to see how well Gibson can do over the entire run. And at what price point.
And I wonder how much wear is on the back.
Yes they are measured.
The emphasis in marketing is the Rock Star that used it.
But you'll notice the Whitford Burst belongs to a rock star, but he is not AS important as Joe Perry?
Maybe with less plasticizers?
From personal experience mixing and shooting Nitro, I can say that without any plasticizer, the finish will crack and fall off within about a week
Thanks for posting John!
Hey Jimmy. How many are you getting?
