    That is just perfect!

    I have a mini version of your rig....a LPC and a metro amp 68 that I built. Nothing rivals the Metroamp in my opinion, in fact, everyone that wants a Gibson and a Marshall should get a Metro instead.

    HNGD!!!!

    The Metro-Plex is an amazing amp - really wish I had it when I was in my 20s and gigging out regularly, haha.

    My neighbors love the attenuator. Keeps them from having to call the police on me.

    I bought the 2 PUP version exactly 3 years ago. Even though it was a wonderful fiddle and the price was right too, I returned it the next day. I have to admit that I cannot handle a guitar so pristine, all new and shiny. Too much for me.

    This is how it looked

    Congrats. It looks great. I tried aquiring a two pickup version a few months ago but it fell through.

    I'm sure you knew this question was coming. :laugh2:

    Is it as good as your TH?

    It's a great guitar - different from the TH58, of course, do in no small part to the lack of a maple cap and an ebony board (this Custom also has a much fatter neck). I haven't played a TH Custom yet, which would be a fairer comparison.

    The finish does feel a bit stickier and thicker on the Custom - I may send it off to HM one of these days.

    LOVE it. The white gloves throwing the horns up was just about the perfect thing to send some iced coffee through my nostrils this morning. :laugh2::laugh2:

    I’m surprised the rare axe like this would go to clearance!
    Especially we don’t know if Custom Shop can have its 30th anniversary for reissued series or not...:fingersx:

    Mine is on the way, I can’t wait to see it!
