This guitar is so gorgeous, the pictures don't do it justice. I took it to my guitar tech, and wouldn't put it down. He said it was the best guitar he's ever played. The neck ,the finish,the gold is flawless. I wish I could afford two. One to play, one to hang on the wall! Thankyou Gibson
This is the best guitar I have ever played. And even though it costs so much, it is completely worth it. I saw Slash playing once, and I decided to give it a try, and I have not put it down since. I highly reccomned purchasing this guitar if you can afford it. This is the god of all guitars!!!
