I know this isn't for everyone, but I love it :) This is a 2022 traditional pro V, and i guess the traditional is now GC exclusive. Actually, GC made this purchase really smooth and I'm quite satisfied. This weighs in at 9.8 pounds, which is a bit heavier than I expected. I also had never heard "tradbuckers" pickups, but so far I'm a fan.

This is after I told myself that Gibsons were too expensive and I'm not buying anymore, and besides quality of Epiphones of so good, why pay so much for a Gibson? But I did it.

Congrats :) NIce guitar, does the colour balance shift with the light? I can see how it might grow on you.

Wow, what an awesome color. I‘ll bet that you are happy that you had a moment of weakness and bought this Gibson.

Very nice! The zebra pickups standout. I remember older blueberries with covered pickups.

I think i would remove the pick guard.

Enjoy

Those are so nice and nicer looking in real life.

Pics normally don't do them justice.

Love it! I'm normally very traditional in my tastes when it comes to guitars, but I'll own a blueberry burst one day.

Better looking than any “traditional“ Gibson burst color, in my opinion.

This guitar makes me want a snow cone. The blue raspberry ones were always my favorite.

The color/flame does shift a little in light, and whenever I try to photograph it, it always comes out like it's "glowing."

I agree about the pickguard! I really wish they would have left it off. I'm considering taking it off, but then will be a home on the top and so far I've not been able to fill one and make it not noticeable :(

These tradbuckers are pretty nice, I'm a fan (though they sound like the 61's and burstbucker pro's to me)
