    didnt get to play one but while working at sam ash in 1996 a guy came in with one and sold it to the store. It was a beauty nice flame faded cherry burst w/orig.case and strap. I got to look at it but that was it!! :( it was placed in a show case for $ 56,000 just being able to look at it gave me a rush! Nothing came come close to the old growth wood-some were not so good some were great! hec, i had a 2004 edwards J.P. L.P. that beat the pants off my custom shop 2004 hand picked les paul the edwards just played better and was balanced better for my taste. Wish gibson would just get it right and stop charging crazy money for these reissues.they are out of hand!

    Even if I did get to play one,I'm prolly just to jaded now to be unbiased. I would approach it like an 80yr old redneck farmer would to a celebrity actor everybody was saying is the greatest person. I'd spit my tabacky on their $500 loafers.

    Everyone in this thread is full of shit.

    Some people worshipping Bursts like they were shat out by God himself...

    And others pretending like they wouldn't have an instant orgasm if someone gave them a Burst...


    I call shenanigans on this whole damn thread. May it burn in hell.
