Again I don’t know a ton about Gibson’s but I thought I read the “standard 61” was discontinued earlier than brought back for this series. But idk for sure.Ah ok, that's interesting! I only knew about Fireburst. This is a nice finish and I can imagine that the seller will insist on the 1000,- because of the "custom finish".
In case it's condition is at least nealry flawless, no deadspots, etc.,... I would go for it.
