Actually, it's petrified oak BC90s with a bronze Stonehenge graphic on the back of the headstock. Proprietary Chalcolithic European Run.

Getting more impressed with this thing. The neck has some shoulders to it, and is Pretty wide. But is easy to play and the sound is really Cool. +i think its stunning to look at.
And this at What i think is a great price. Good value guitar, really

Swap out that brass nut with a titanium replacement and you are all set. I’ve owned two 2015 LP DC’s and liked them both. I also like the necks on these.

Congratulations, a beautiful guitar.

Congrats. I have the same guitar, and I really like mine as well.

I agree with Gridlock. You might want to think about swapping out the brass nut for the titanium replacement.. (Gibson used to send the titanium replacement nut to you at no charge - that's how I got mine. I'm not sure if they still do that, though..) If not, a Graph Tech TUSQ XL should work as well. The stock brass nut wears pretty fast.

But yeah, I play mine a lot. That wide, flat neck is different for sure, but I have no problem with it.

I haven't swapped out the G-Force tuners in mine yet - as they have worked perfectly so far. But to be honest, string changing with the G-Force can be a hassle. So I'm finally leaning towards swapping out the G-Force to a regular set of Klusons or similar..

Anyway, I think you're going to love it. Those alnico slug P90's are awesome. That's really what made me buy the guitar.

I, admittedly, had the hardest time not picking one up to try at the local GC during their year of release. Such a looker! But, I knew I'd be thrown by the neck, and at that particular time, thought that this was the direction that Gibson was going and I didn't want to have anything to do with that. Glad they learned their lesson, and good-bye (good riddance) Henry. I'd love to give one a try now. Sans robo-tuners.

They are VERY nice looking guitars.

The OP’s guitar got me thinking about the two 2015 DC Specials that I owned. My first P90 guitars and I did like the tone of the P90’s. I do miss the TV Yellow guitar.

I removed the Robot Tuners on the Yellow guitar the first week I owned it. The Red Wine guitar’s Robot tuners were already replaced with Klusons when I bought it. Luckily, no extra holes required with the Klusons.
