This is a great guitar if you look past the few flaws in it's appearance. The sound is gorgeous, with more openness and less of the boxiness that this style of Gibson is known for. Recent professional neck reset, fret job, bridge, braces glued, etc. In short, it's set-up wonderfully and has a great sound.
