Well, I took my daughter to a birthday this Saturday and decided to stop by a nearby GC while I waited. Ended walking out the door with one of these seafoam 2019 Standards.

Absolutely not my style when it comes to looks and myriad of features and such, but just loved, loved, loved that neck and the overall feel and sound of the guitar, including the split tones.

Also a really weird finish for a LP I always thought but in person and removing my purist glasses it really does look cool. Much more figured top than most of the recent originals too. It's been a long time since I've had a Gibson USA guitar and have read all the horror stories as far as quality. I wouldn't agree based on this one, this is a beautiful and flawlessly finished instrument.

So, it's going to sit proudly by my R8 and R9, and I'm really happy I stumbled upon this one. I actually liked it quite a bit better than a couple of Moderns they had, go figure... who would have thought.

I'm a big fan of the non traditional finishes, and this has always been a favorite of mine.

I'm that weird guy who even appreciates the Latte and Gecko Bursts for what they are.

Variety is the spice of life.

Very cool. Beautiful. Gibson can't win sometimes. They complain that Gibson only puts out the same boring colors and should be more like PRS and try out new finishes. Then they put out Sea Foam and Blueberry Burst (I have one) for one or two years and people lose their minds. Love the new colors. They should put out at least one or two non-trad every year.

So much hate with the Burstbucker Pros and the switching system... I don't get it, great sounds all around.
