i don't think bloomfield, mcready or gibbons were/are lawyers
You know what is even more awesome/ironic? I ended up buying a gorgeous AAA Flamey LP Standard. That comment was so cringe. Also, um, blues lawyer is just a figure of speech. It does not actually refer to the occupation of lawyer per se. lol. See what I did there.

Tobacco? What year. I like it!!!
This one is a 2003 classic. Modded with Montys Full Monty pickups, Montys 50’s wiring harness, full rewire with braided wire, Faber bridge and tailpiece. It’s a beast!

2007 Classic. Chambered, Duncan '59s, and all braided wiring, including a special 50's harness with 400K pots by Roxie13 right here in river city! I got it here, from a great Forum member. Came to me without a mark on it. Click for a full-sized pic.

Mines on page 2 and was a plain top but now it’s translucent gold (I almost left it at one coat as looked awesome up close)

My Hard Rock R9 has a trans light blue/green hue with metal flake mixed in. The trans sparkle combo is very cool!

Gibson did some trans gold model for their Summer Jam promotions in '10 or '11 if I remember correctly.

I surprised they don't do it more. Mine is hard to capture in pics but is stunning in person.

That sounds like an awesome finish (wish I took more time for my pics).

Some of the Gibson mod shop guitars look pretty sweet and seem to cover a section of the market previously untapped by Gibson. It’s great to see such individual guitars coming out of such a great company- I’d suggest any damage done by Henry J has been totally undone
