I got this beauty a week ago.
However, I had a crazy work schedule and today is the first day I am actually spending some time with my new AJ.
The specs are;
• Adirondack Red Spruce top with Bhilwara Rosewood back and sides
• Trance Amulet M
• Gold vintage open-back tuners
She sounds great. though my Bhilwara back and sides look like EIRW, it sounds more like RW than Hog.
Ren Ferguson has said that this tonewood sound somewhere between RW and Hog, but to me it's way more RW than Hog.
This is the first time for me to play an AJ, it sounds like a balanced HD-28 with Gibson's thumpy-ness.
I'll get some good pictures later but here's a phone picture for now.
one concern I have is, it came with really no documents.
just a hang tag that says that it's gone through QC.
As a customshop instrument, shouldn't it come with a COA and a gold pamphlet that says "American Made" and such?
By the way, I purchased from an authorized dealer and the dealer didn't know of such paperwork and told me to contact Gibson directly....
