    I bougnt it brand new 700 Euros, this is the price for a poor chinese Epiphone copy....

    The Gibson is very resonant, fantastic guitar ! I made cool upgrades:

    - Buffing finish
    - '59 Historic truss rod cover
    - Black plastics and 5 ply pickguard, genuine Gibson parts
    - M-69 Wizz custom pickup rings
    - Historic amber switch tip and black poker chip
    - Nickel metal jack plate, stronger than the plastic one
    - Gold PLT knobs
    - Gibson ABR-1 bridge with conversion studs
    - Hand made body binding

    Beautiful......that finish is absolutely gorgeous.
    Always love the subtle, gold color.

    I'd guess it feels damn fine in your greedy hands :).....I wreak with envy.

    Carry on....

    Congrats! I have a Tribute as well, and they’re great! A whole lot less worrisome to take out and play than a Joe Bonamassa model too!

    When a I see these I always wonder why they are so inexpensive. They look so much better than the more expensive Studio models to me.

    Congrats and enjoy!!!

    Love mine. Yours is beautiful. I gotta change out the cream for black also. I did replace the pickups with custom wounds pafs, opened her right up.
