I updated with actual pics. The flame is a touch more peek a boo then i imagined. But my god does it sound and play amazing! The pickups are insane! Love them
You know, I've thought this too, but I wonder if Gibson really cares enough to send certain 'quality' guitars to certain places or not. I was challenged by this by seeing one of the most beautiful Original Collection 50s Standards at a GC about a year ago. It was killer - very deep, detailed crisp flame. It stood out from all the other LPs they had by a mile. And it didn't yet have any of the GC relic treatment. I was pretty shocked.I think this is why places like GC get mostly undistinguished LPs. A Standard is no longer Standard. What you get depends, often, on where you buy it. It shouldn't be that way, but that's how it seems to work. I'd like to hear some of the discussions between Gibson and different retailers.
