Can't wait!!

I think that you will be VERY pleased, not just to finish off the collection, but to have what to me was Gibson's finest creation - ever!!

I have played a couple and while the sound is no different to the LPR, the feel of this instrument leaves other guitars wanting.

Glad that the CORD comes with it - if you feel like experimenting you can choose a higher output by dismantling the Transformer and swapping a connection. If you want further details I can take mine apart and take some pics. I once had the Shure wiring diagram but I think that it is now long gone.

Yesterday I came across a nice Les Paul Personal, ended up buying it. It should be delivered sometime next week. It even has the original chord in great shape. That rounds up my low impedance collection. Pictures to follow............................


Congratulations! [thumbup]

I love that big-body contour. I think it looks even better than the conventional Les Paul shape.

Here You can find the wiring schematic for the transformer: http://cdn.shure.com...pro_a95u_ug.pdf

Believe it or not, I still couldn't buy a Shure Line Matching Transformer locally. Even tough, there are a couple of shops advertising it, noone seems to have them in stock. If I get it from UK, it would cost nearly twice as much...

Ok, that makes no sense, since noone has them locally anyways... :D

Good luck with the mic! [thumbup]

Cheers... Bence

If anyone is looking for a Shure A95U complete with lead I have one to dispose of.

It is not the Gibson badged version it came from Shure.

Hello!

Sorry to hear that! I guess, it will take some time for collectors to recognize this model. Then...it will be really sought-after guitar.

Good luck! [thumbup]

Hello Dave!

I would have gladly bought it from You, but with all the shipping costs and import duties (and the stupid 27% VAT in Hungary) it wouldn't have been a clever option for me. Anyways, I finally found an A85F in the UK - same as A95U(F) but with a jack plug at high-Z end instead of the socket. Hopefully it arrives next week.

Cheers... Bence

Well, I picked it up about 2 hours ago from the Post Office, it arrived in great shape! The seller did a great job packing it. I'm still in shock!! It plays like a Les Paul Custom of the same era. Either my adrenalin is pumped, or this thing is a lot lighter than my LP Professional or the LP Bass. I'll set things up & take some better photos in the next couple weeks............

Grog,

That is GORGEOUS!!

....and in excellent condition.

Bence,

It is not oversized - the rest are UNDER-sized.

It looks so RIGHT!!

The guitar seemed to get heavier, as the newness wore off, so I pulled out the scale. The Personal is 11.4 lbs and the Professional is 10.6 lbs. I sure got that one wrong, I thought for sure the Personal was a lot lighter than the Professional!

There was a time when Les experimented with Railway Ties.

11.4 lbs was a compromise!!

P.S. It still looks BEAUTIFUL!

I tried pluging a standard XLR mic in the XLR jack, no sound. The last listing I was following stated that the mic jack didn't work also. Didn't they wire some of the older mics differently. It looks as if I am the first person to plug anything into the jack, I doubt it's a malfunction. Any ideas?
