This is my second one. Had some minor QC issues with the first (i was being a baby about it. Was easily fixable but i just dident want to keep it) WW was being amazing about it i was just iffy on keeping it.

I was waiting for a super flame top to pop up. I called and they hadent posted this one on the site yet just arrived that day. Cant plug it in untill tomorrow but holy sexy if it sounds like the last one i sent back ill be happy! Heres some porn

Did they just get some in? Thought Gibson was closed temporarily?

Just spoke to my rep at WW and he assured me they have not received anymore since Gibson temporarily shutdown which was 3 weeks ago. So, not exactly sure how you got yours if it was last week? But you got a sweet one for sure!

I had to send one back too - it was BEAUTIFUL, but also had multiple QC issues. I am very happy with the second one I got, and after I set it up it's just amazing. Hope yours is too. Curious as to what issues you had with the first?

Not sure maybe they had it for awhile and just got to opening her up? Their site was lonly for a few days. They dident have pro pics of it just outdoor ones they took for me when i asked.

My isses with the last one was their was a bunch of glue on the side of frets/fretboard and some big file gouges on binding/fretboard. And the pro pics made the flame look way more intense then it actually was so was a bit sad about that. But sounded killlllller and played great

Congrats. I'm looking to buy one of those and have been waiting impatiently for them to get more from Gibson. I almost pulled the trigger on one of the last ones they had but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. Seems like I'm not the only one waiting.

Ok played her a bit. Holy hell. She just rings out, super defined notes, maybe its their great setups. Maybe just a good slab of wood. 2pc back. The low wind 59s are much more open/musical sounding then even the 2014 59t's (i have a stock 14 trad)

I know I love mine and agree the pickups are top notch. And yea, their setups definitely make something great even better. Very happy for ya!!
