Well I finally put my mitts on it. This one came from MF and is two serial numbers higher (8 7571) than the highest repurposed CC29 I've seen at WW (8 7569). Appears to have been pulled from the aging station before Gibson finished the process. Seems Gibson were adamant about stopping the production on these as in right now. Officially dubbed Tea Burst I suspect that the final step in the TH process is a few coats of yellowed amber for the head stock and bindings to give that aged almost too yellowed TH appearance. I'm guessing also that that the yellow tint would have left this one looking like all the other repurposed CC29s once a few coats were applied to this top. I'm not big on aging especially when it destroys half the finish on the back like this CC model did. The aging here is rather subtle as far as dings and dents go but the checking is pretty f'n awesome. ..this is the end of the NGDs for me for a while. Without further ado: And a couple of the aged case: Sorry about the less than quality shots, it's colder than a witches tit outside!
