I just got a 1980 custom with it and felt the exact same way. Worked well, just couldn't get used to it...

Congrats on the new guitar. Did you find it in NL?
Yeah, its a bit of an odd one tough. Back and sides have been stripped at some point (long ago, already showing a lot of wear), and the neck has some overspray along the edges. It sounds killer, and i actually like the look of the chery/brown back and sides with the black top. Odd choice not to strip the neck though

I do like the look of that black nitro against the red mahogany. It looks better than my stripped maple neck (but it was too sticky so it had to be done).

I thought 83 was when gibson went back to mahogany necks. But maybe I remember it incorrectly and 82 was the cut off year.

Hog back in 82 but maple was still coming out also.

I am like you, there’s something about that “look”.

Look at that dropped down, pointy horn!!

Those were the years!

The fine tuners are a great idea. I’m surprised the TP6 didn’t really catch on. The concept has been used on violins for decades.
