I know the QC issues are there on the new stuff, but my Gibsons play and sound great. :shrug: No refret needed. Its kinda funny that I also bashed Gibson for the longest time, but I have grown quite attached to mine. The feel, the tone, the sustain are all just amazing. Kinda scary I finally found my "tone" and its mahogany Gibson V's through Mesas. I was originally going to put a Vanzant humbucker in my faded V, but I'm honestly scared to fuck with it because I love the tone as is with the Gibson pickups in it. I'll save the Vanzant for maybe the White V if I end up getting it.If it didnt need a fucking refret from the factory and sound like it was made from MDF, id be all over it at that price. Those are hot as shit.
:agreed: My love affair with Gibsons isn't too secret though. I will be getting one Non Gibson V so I don't come off as a fanboi (also because Hamers pwn too). :lol: But since my Explorer is going back to its original owner I will be buying a White Gibson V, and a flame top Hamer V. :metal:Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2; en-us; ADR6300 Build/FRF91) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1)
I know exactly what you're talking about. I have a secret love affair with Gibsons. I had an 81 LP Custom when I was playing in bands and going on my second SG now. I guess they just kinda grow on you. I hope this doesn't mean I'm turning into one of those blues dads, wanking musty chops on a Clapton strat in Guitar Center. No.. I can still appreciate a good BC Rich here and there.
As for that Thunderhorse model, I'd play it, but only pay about a thousand for one.
