"The perfect Semi-Hollow!"
I've played some semi-hollow guitars in my time, but this one has to be the best. The 57 classic pickups normally don't sound good to my ears but in this guitar they flat-out screamed. Played through a 50-watt Marshall and a 60-watt Fender, these guitars deliver the tone I was so desperatly seeking. Now I have to own one.
Like all Gibsons, this guitar is flagrantly overpriced. If they brought thier prices down (which is not likely but everyone has dreams) this would be a perfect insturment.
The one I played had loose knobs, and now and again the three-way switch stopped working. Other than that, however, the overall quality was exceptional.
I've never had a problem with a Gibson so I can't say.
Like said before, Gibson needs to stop overpricing their instruments.
The Wow Factor:
Ach...this thing was seductive!!! If I were a rich man... I have a feeling that if I were to buy this guitar my SG and Mustang would get lonely...
It is safe to assume that after buying this guitar I would only modify it and not replace it with a similar guitar, because in my eyes this is the best axe in its class.
