    Very nice! Is it new? For some reason, virtually every second-hand GS I've ever seen has had the living **** kicked out of it:D:D:lol:

    People sell their Gordon Smiths?

    Inconceivable!

    Nice. Presumably this is a new Auden era GS?

    I've been thinking about single P90 guitars lately and coming back to the idea of a GS1.

    Very nice. I always liked Gordon Smiths.

    Dundee, eh? I'm just watching the Socceroos play Chinese Taipei and Harry Souter has scored. 6-1 with 6 1/2 min to go.:D

    The guitar plays well and sounds fantastic. The top looks great but is a veneer not an actual solid cap. I'm fine with that. It's a really beautiful guitar. My only issue is that the stop tail looks slightly offline.

    I keep forgetting about Gordon Smith. Thanks. I never fail to find new inspiration for GAS here.

    It is a change from the strat and feels very solid

    I don’t know anything about Gordon Smith. Is he related to Paul Reed Smith?
