    Here is my cc36 next to the Goldfinger. What a treat! Awesome guitars! Besides the looks, the neck profile and weight are almost identical at .860 @ 1st fret and just under 8 lbs.

    One thing I've noticed is Gibson seems have taken the arm wear thing a little too far on some of these

    This is not a CC, just a regular R8, but the reason I bought it is because of its close resemblance to “Nicky”.

    Both guitars have a very similar diagonal figuring above the pickups, although the angle is flip-flopped between the two.

    +1. I found a older pic of my Skinnerburst, I do not have many of it, and edited my post to it over the dealer pic I first posted.

    It's more accurate to what the guitar actually looks like compared to the super dark, super old, dealer pic I posted at first.

    I've always liked the Beast. If you ever want to sell, at a reasonable price, PM me!
