Steal deal, congratsl. I picked up a 2005 about 4 years ago for $425. It was 3 miles from my house and in mint condition so I could not resist. Absolute baseball bat neck which I'm fine with. 1st thing I did was put in some older '57 pups I had laying around. These have always been kind of categorized as budget working men guitars mainly because of the finish and unbound neck. That's also fine with me. I think there the best value Gibsons one can buy and at the right price I would get a 2nd one. Anytime I see one for sale local to me within 60 miles I check on it.
