Absolutely love the finish work on that, but that body shape will never be my thing.

It’s a love it or hate it type thing. I love the shape, but I can see why some don’t.

Beard has wanted one of these forever, so maybe this will be an impetus for him to finally grab one.

The 80s ones are really cool, but I don't know about that nutsy Moog wiring/pickups config on some of them.

Yeah I’m not typically a big fan of gold hardware, but it works on this finish. It’s already a bitch to keep clean, though.

Looks nice!

Interesting how they deviated so much from the specs of the original '70s guitars. Those are just brutal--maple body/neck, ebony board, 25.5" scale. This looks a little more traditional Gibson-style.

Yeah they have basically made this more “Gibson” than the originals. I wouldn’t mind the 25.5” scale, but honestly you can keep the 12lb all maple construction and that rats nest of Moog electronics. Lol. This only weighs between 8-9lbs.

These are way more my style than the silverburst ones from a few years ago with the baseball necks. I really don't need another guitar though :lol:

Anyway looks sick man :yesway:

Grats, man! That looks absolutely sweet.

I agree with Jeff on the gold hardware; it just works.

Most people used to rip them out. They probably don't anymore, though, with what those go for.

I always liked these guitars from the first time I saw Bob Welch with one.
