    Killer great guitar.

    Arrived today in the mail.

    Funny;
    The Gibson Guitar Forum won't let me post photos of this crazy wonderful Gibson guitar.

    Happy to share with my Telecaster friends.

    Some of the forums now limit the size of the JPG files used to post pics. I had this problem on the My Les Paul forum. I found a way to reduce the file size in my picture editor by opening the pic in the editor, right clicked the photo I wanted to post, picked resize from the drop down menu, and reduced the file size from about 15 meg, to 2 meg. Then I saved it and then it posted fine....worked for me anyway! Cool guitar BTW, and at a really great price!

    I’d love one of these with just a single volume and (maybe) a single tone. That would be right up my alley. One of my beefs with the Gibson guitars is that most of them have what I would consider to be overly complicated controls(Don’t get me started on gretsch). But otherwise I would love them. Why not outback out a model or two with simplified controls? Either way, the BFG is up there on my list of Gibson’s to get.

    I've got one of those in alligator green.

    It's a BFG (thread title?), but I guess it could be a BFD if one was excited enough.

    Big Freaking Dork (BFD), that's me.

    The guitar is a BFG.

    Congrats. I have one of those. It was a blemish at GC. It’s a pretty great guitar. Have fun.

    The entire guitar is a blemish.

    Congrats on scoring one for less than full price!
