    Very cool. A rare piece, indeed. Love the crescent moon pick guard! Is this one brazilian on the back & sides?

    It does have Brazilian rosewood on back & sides. The pickguard on this one is sort of odd. All of the others have a tortoise shell colored pickguard. This one had a plain TRC & a black pick guard. We think it might have been an early example, but who knows............. I just found an original engraved TRC. Rarer than hens teeth!

    I know I've posted this photo in the past. This series of amps should have been the last amps made by Gibson in Kalamazoo. I started collecting the smallest of this series amp a number of years ago. These were considered by most to be clean amps, more suitable for jazz & clean playing. The Skylarks do break up nicely when cranked all the way up. Other than one solid state amp that Gibson had in the Crestliner Series, the GSS amps were some of the earliest solid state amps at 50 & 100 watts.

    I negotiated with my spousal unit when I bought the leg lamp. I can keep it upstairs from "Black Friday" to January 1st in the bay window. I usually leave it up there till about February, then she reminds me what happened in the movie. It's downstairs until next year, keeping my guitars company. Why women hate leg lamps makes no sense to me.............

    Those a good looking basses. Mine is cream and a 4 string. I prefer the look of yours and I really like the gold ones but when I bought mine cream was the only color available.

    I wanted a fire burst to match the five string, but the color is different between the two. The bass came in both fire burst & vintage sunburst, not much difference but mine is fire burst according to the Gibson web page.

    If I wasn't able to land the fire burst, the red one was starting to grow on me.

    Just wondering - what kind of rod does the previous EB have?

    I was a little curious also, It looks like typical Gibson to me on the 2014.............
