Well, the procedure was a success!!!!
Love that burst colour.
Only 50% of the time.
Thanks! I've always liked bursts without black or dark brown edges. They remind me of "Russian Tea" we used to make in elementary school with Tang and cinnamon.
Well I hoped you learn your lesson for going out and buying a Gibson, geez.
I’d like chrome top knobs on that one to blend a bit with hardware and pu covers.
How’s she sound?
Bbuckers or 57 classics?
Burstbucker 1 & 2. Sounds great- it has a really emphatic voice. The pickups are a lot livelier and are much more usable than the "Probuckers" on my Epiphone Sheraton, which are wooly and dark. The Gibsons are great if I bump the mids and they get a horn-like voice, but they're also really gorgeous clean. Build quality is great, and it's one of the best setups I've seen (thanks Chicago Music Exchange). I kind of want to raise the action a little, but I'm going to hold off and try to train myself to have a little bit of a lighter "Gibson touch" as opposed to my traditional "Fender fight." It's such a nice guitar- honestly, if you have any GAS for an ES, check Chicago ME for floor models now. It's definitely a rare opportunity.
Just bought this; ZERO regrets.
Nice! You even got the pink lingerie with the case! Mine has a more sensible gray lining- less Victoria's Secret and more Hanes. Still sexy, though!
I guess I'm lucky that I've never encountered a problem. I've bought quite a number of guitars from Wildwood in Colorado. They've even held up on shipping in really bad conditions. I guess that even when it leaves the Rocky Mountain state in freezing temps that by the time it goes through Missouri, Atlanta all the way to Jacksonville it' just never been an issue.
I have on a few occasions left it in the box for an hour and then in the case for another hour but that's it.
That's a beauty!
You did the smart thing by leaving it in the box for a while. With the kind of cold it went through it's hard to say what the actual temperature of the steel and wiring were. There's not many ways for moisture to get to them...unless of course their temp is single digits and you open the box into warm air at around 30-40 percent humidity. Bam! Instant condensation on things that would normally never see a drop.
It's a total beauty for sure.
Congrats on successful unboxing.
Want to know what I think of Gibson? Retirement present to myself came in last week.
So, they have a few left. I guess the deal is that they don't have a warranty at that price. I assume that you are satisfied with the condition of the guitar?
The guitar is perfect as far as I can tell. I changed strings yesterday and I found a loose nut on one of the tuners. You're right that there's no warranty. Of course, if you're willing to pay double to have the warranty, you're assuming Gibson is going to stay in business long enough for you to use it! I spent a couple of hours just now playing it (snow day). It's a beautifully payable and touch sensitive guitar. Here I am noodling it over some Larry Carlton chords https://instagram.com/p/BeEJStvhyn-/
Well now you have to leave it out on the porch for 12 hrs.
I'm going to order one from CME at tax time if they still have any 339s. But I'm going to get it shipped to my local builder so he can check it out and set it up. I'd hate to have it sent to my place and let it sit outside
They still have a CME warranty, whatever that means.
