This is the one!
Three years ago I played the Custom version of this guitar. The second I grabbed it I felt the guitar became part of me (yes, I am a child of the 60s). It played like magic and felt incredible. I have wanted one of these ever since. The price of the Custom was more than I wanted to spend. I really don't care about the Varitone and I have the Custom's PUPS on another Gibson. So I ordered the Classic in the Blues Burst (as others have said, GET the Blue one!). It is solidly built and plays like the Custom. While $2K is a lot of money, in the realm of high end guitars, this is a bargain and looks phenominal. The tone is smooth overall, but can rock with the best of them. Kudos to Gibson! I love this guitar. Andy Miller rocks!
