  1. I got one and had to return it as the truss rod was sliding around loose in the neck and it wouldn't hold the relief. I got the signed version which has his signature in a folding leather booklet like the Gibson Custom Shop guitars. The same thing the Bonamassa signature Epi I got had. I should get a replacement sent out this week when they're in stock. I should add that I have a 2015 Gibson Custom Shop Frampton which is night and day a very much better quality guitar. No complaints with the Epi besides the faulty truss rod I got. I'll further add that the Epi is a traditional fat Les Paul neck and the Gibson Custom is a slimline 60 profile like Peter really uses. That being said the classic 50s neck on the Epi was excellent and felt a lot like my 59 Gibson Historic Custom Shop guitar neck.
  2. You can Google that info easily, different years had different style cases. The case I have for mine came in 2015 which was the brown Lifton Custom Shop reissue case with pink lining.You'll see some that had his signature in gold on a black shroud with black liner in a black case, some with black case and white lining, some with burgundy lining etc.
  3. It's funny you mention that, mine did too back in the day. Interesting huh? I used my 5 year warranty a few times for it too, it would be fixed and it always went back again. This one is fine thankfully.
  4. I got a 1989 Gibson '67 Flying V reissue with a tobacco sunburst finish as a birthday gift from my lady. She got it for me because I bought one in 1989 and ran into a need for cash and sold it and have missed it since. I got the same exact guitar back and it feels good. It was very dirty and unloved, superficial scratches here and there so I buffed them out and also cleaned one of the dirtiest fret boards I've ever seen. basically I stripped this down and cleaned all the parts. I also did a neck truss adjust as it was bowed pretty neglectedly, so much so the tune-o-matic was lowered down all the way on both sides to get a "normal" string height. It's all good now and the guitar sounds great and plays great and I have my guitar back though this wasn't the exact same guitar I had. I ordered chrome pickup covers from Gibson because of a cracked pickup pictured. Also some new matching knobs from Gibson as the previous owner broke these trying to pry them off with a screwdriver or butter knife or something. In any case the guitar is structurally sound and I am happy. i guess this is my welcome back to the Gibson Flying V world. I own 9 guitars but my favorite 2 are the Gibsons. I also own a 2013 SG Standard in Classic White.
  5. There are some beautiful guitars in this thread. Awesome. I got a 2013 SG Standard in Classic White as a gift from my lady last year. I named the guitar Marilyn.
  6. Absolutely gorgeous guitars! Thanks for posting those!
