I have wanted this guitar since the 90's when the Gibson models were popular with some of my favorite bands. I lead worship at church with a full band,so this along with my Fishman loudbox performer amp gives me the sound I want and can compeate with electric instruments and a loud drumer with no feedback! Plays well and sounds even better! I absoulty love this guitar and I've owned some good ones in the last 18 years of playing. Highly recomend!
