Gibson doesn't really have "better parts" for their higher priced models. And for what you pay the Custom Shop stuff isn't that special. As for the topic at hand if I remember right the GM is essentially an R9 without binding and different pickups then what was offered at the time. The neck may have been slightly slimmer than an R8-R9 at the time as well. Speaking of odd balls, but in a similar vein did anyone ever mess around with the Les Paul acoustic?

I'm only referring to their regular production guitars.
Custom Shop stuff can be, but not necessarily, another thing all together.

From a cost and production point of view, a GM is far closer to a Studio, then a Standard. Of course if Gibson wanted, they could put a "Firebird" name on it...
And it was a Limited run because they chose to do so.

BTW, I'm not putting the guitars down, they rock, just say'n.
