I will say right away I have the Black Beauty 57 Reissue of this its still a Hollow Body and has a Bigsby Tailpiece/Tremolo on it. Plus I have three gold pickups, gold hardware. This guitar is by far containing the most sustain I've ever experienced from a guitar. Its absolutely pristine. If you're looking for that Trey Anastasio type sound, this is your guitar. Yet it also has that Jimmy Page sound as well. Then again, any proficient guitarist will be able to produce their own style and will not be a clone of a great guitarist though we all look up to those who came before us. A Hollow Body LP is exactly what the doctor ordered. My original 57 Reissue Black Beauty was so good I figured if I could get a Hollow Body of this then it would be so much better and it is. I cannot stress to you how much you need this guitar. Beg, borrow, or steal (no don't really steal) do whatever you have to get higher wages at work I'm telling you this is a beauty.
Music background: lots o' stuff (no bragging here)
