    Always wanted one of these but never got one until now. When I saw zzounds blowing them out @ $999 I picked this one. She weighs 7lbs 2oz, plays and sounds great. Maybe a little darker than a maple topped Les Paul. Has a great fat 50’s neck (my favorite). I wish more Gibson’s had that. These are NOS 2016 models. My inspection card is dated 02/17/16.



    For under $1000 a Gibson with HSC, 50's neck and a killer 1 piece back. This was a no brainer for me.

    Sweet! Congrats! :thumb:

    Beautiful grain pattern!

    Is it a satin finish?

    Something just seems right to me about a unbound dot neck!

    I can’t help thinking how that LP would look with gold knobs and cream plastics.

    You just don't see many nice Gibsons like this one. Familiar, but completely different with all the 'pop' in just the right places. I'm jealous.
