These guitars just shimmer with good old class and nostalgia. These guitars all though quite expensive still have a look and feel to them that no other guitar that Gibson produces can match. These guitars have such a great tone that is just an essential part of music history. The look of the the guitar itself is such a gem and the flamed maple top it just top notch.

SOUNDS

These guitars sound fantastic in any setting imaginable. The fire burst is nice but not anywhere near the price they are asking for this instrument. This guitar has a '59 spec rounded neck to this is going to be a pretty fat neck. The neck used at the time were pretty round compared to the 60's necks. Some people will like that and others will not. This guitar has a great feel overall and just very easy playability. I really like the amp with a high gain amp of some kind. If that be a Marshall or a Mesa Boogie or even a Bogner amp these guitars just shine.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are pretty expensive and at new price they go for well over $5000 so this is not a beginner guitar and for most people this is well out of the the budget. I guess this is for pros and enthusiasts. Overall it is a very cool instrument and one that has been regarded as one of the very best years for any guitar made.
