    Thanks.
    Yeah I'm super happy with the guitar.
    Actually while I was shopping and had decided to get an R8 I never considered the color options.
    Just wanted the best playing guitar I could find.
    To me - this guitar was it, took about three months to decide and play a lot of them.
    Touched this and the sparks went flying...lol...
    Didn't even know what this color was called until I came home and started looking through the paperwork.
    To me this guitar is a real beauty and plays and sounds majestically, that's about the best work I can think of to describe what the sound and playability is like.
    All subjective of course.
    Gibson really nailed it with this guitar.
    Raised the action just a bit.
    2.75 on bass side and 2.00 on the treble side.
    It's perfect action for me and the 10's that are on it.
    As you can tell I'm still very excited about the guitar....lol :):):)

    Thanks again

    Sad to say this is, and has been for a while, a history lesson as to what was great about Gibson.
