Those R5s have one of the nicest neck shapes Gibson has ever offered. Buckers and a wraptail also make for a very lively and resonant tone. These are killer guitars! If I didn't own one already, I would be hitting you up for a price on an outright sale.

The only recent Gibson Custom model that is rarer than the Hot Mod and isn't a one-off is the single pup Custom.

My guess is less than 100 at most. When new only a handful of the top tier dealers had them. And they only had a handful go thru their shops. I'm sure there are some in Japan too.

I think I saw maybe 20 for sale new and less than 5 for sale since. I couldn't swing a new one at the time and I've had an eye out for one ever since.

Just FYI, all the single pup Reissues use the wide-fat short CS tenon.

I've always wanted, but yet to see, a single neck pup Custom. That's the one that'd really force me into debt.
