Well, I guess the only difference is the guys who made it. I've been told that the Custom Shop Guitars are Gibson's best efforts made by their best Craftsmen/Luthiers. . ;-)


hey, room. . . shhh ! ! !

OP Mark- congrats on a fine guitar. And you did not overpay. Not by a long shot.

Yes, the bridge is "unique", but as EA mentioned, you get used to seeing it. And you don't see it while enjoying the guitar. Of course, they are doing great things with laser-cut inlay nowadays. [smile] Normally a sunburst kinda guy here, but the Dove just looks better with the natural top to these eyes.

I'd say you got a great deal on a great guitar...but, if you can't shake those doubts, just to show you the kind of guy I am, I'll give you $2001.00 for it... [woot]
