I've had a revolving door of guitars lately.... But it's led me to this..

I've begged a friend for this guitar for awhile.  I had to sell my newly acquired Reverend Charger, but I was able to finally make a deal.  Anyway, I've read where the 90's Gibson were the best ones produced since the golden years.  This one doesn't disappoint!  Chunky round 50's profile, no slim D profile here.  This had a cracked headstock and my friend did a great job on the repair, you can barely see it.  Plain top tobacco burst with a one piece mahogany back.  I fully intended to replace the pickups, but damn, these sound great.  Must of aged a bit or something, but they don't sound like the usual 490R/498T you find today.  Anyway, here she is!
