    Yeah, first notes on the new girl; fingerstylin'; of course! ;) I'm telling you; it's hard to put this thing down. I might get tendinitis, it's that addictive!
    :acoustic:And a big "Bravo!" to Gibson Custom. They really did good on this one IMO. :applause:

    Cheers, guys! :cheers:

    Congrats!

    There was a genuine buzz about this run. Not that I have ever got to play one!

    I have one too - an aged one (8lbs, ultra ultra low serial), and it's as good as it gets. Congrats !

    Congrats! Looks real great! I just bought one that's still not in my place, still in the shop till the CITES paper get ready...
    Waiting for her but I have a question if norwegian ken doesn't mind (hope so!): Those of you who have it (or who knows about it), can you teach me about the tailpiece please? How does it come the guitar's tailpiece has holes on it, just as "locking studs bridges"? I haven't seen it on some other "Standard" or "True Historic" Les Pauls and I couldn't find the info...
