I have had this custom guitar for several years now, and still am amazed everytime I pick up this guitar to play. Mine was customized even more when I purchased this particular model. The pickups, tail piece, pick guard, truss cover were etched with ghost flames. It looked really cool! This guitar came from the Custom Factory that way, so it makes it more special. Anyways, this guitar is a GREAT guitar, and the quality of workmanship is absolutely flawless, from the Gold paint to the small detail such as the binding, the inlays, etc... I would HIGHLY recommend this guitar anyone looking to have a great sounding guitar and well as a great investment piece. You can not go wrong with Gibson Custom guitars, well worth the money spent.
