2001, all original. Alpine White turning creamy nice. A few small dents and the binding ledge lacquer cracks that are pretty common, but overall outstanding condition. My scale batteries died but it feels about 9.5 pounds...not a bad weight for a Custom!
I don't usually say this, but it "plays like butter" lol

Does Gibson even make these outside special runs anymore?

Can't remember when I've ever seen a white one hanging on a store wall.

Yeah they still do make Alpine White ones. They just aren't as common as ebony ones.

Alright, read up on them, prolly get myself a set. Also need to get some nickel tulip keys to go along. That should look cool

They do, and they even charge $500 more than the Ebony finish now as well.
