I have seen some amazing guitars since I've been hanging around here, but your guitar ticks every single box for me and then some. I wouldn't just give the left one to own that, I'd give the right one as well and a kidney. I can do without all of those items at this point in my life.... especially for a guitar like that.
This is very interesting to me. The first guitar top doesn’t do anything for me (don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful guitar!) and I wouldn’t buy it. The second one I’d buy on the spot without thinking.
Both terrific guitars, I’m sure. Congratulations.
Would you mind posting a pic of the headstock? I’m curious about the color of the Gibson “logo”. Thank you!
Thank you for posting! Yeah, the lack of that amber-ish color in the headstock logo and binding is something I don’t like about 2018. But it’s not a deal breaker by any means. And yours has a dark back that I really dig, instead of the new 2018 faded back color.
Again, beautiful guitar. Hope you enjoy it in good health. Thanks for posting!
I think both are beautiful and I would be over the moon to own either, but the first one makes me weak in the knees, like a little schoolgirl. My dream has always been a 59' RI with the perfect faded HCSB, but since I've been seeing all of these black streaky minerally, flecky lemon and dirty lemon finishes, I must admit to being smitten. They have changed my dream of what the perfect 59' is.
