  1. Any feed back on? Thanks in advance!!!
  2. No way to afford it, at least so far, but it was for me a great turn in doble cut designs searched by Gibson from many years, that´s way my comments about this model. Anyway it is evident that business are business and only money talks here..... Thanks Andy
  3. I noted (just by looking at Gibson web site) that they removed the gorgeous special double cut from Custom collection. I believed this model was a sale success, it is evident that not.....saddly, this was my dream lately..... Somebody else has any news about? Thanks Andy
  4. Sorry Brian, how do you get the COA online?, is there any place where to download? I would appreciate your input. Thanks Andy
  5. Beautiful guitar but so expensive in comparison with other Gibsons. It was always a mystery for me, since Johnny A. is not a so popular artist. BR Andy
  6. So beautiful with the pickguard, I like her now more than naked.... BR Andy
  7. Thanks for clarifying the point. It seems that Anna sent the message to everybody..... Andy
  8. Duesenberg has a vibrato which is easily to install on the Gibson tail piece and it is less invasive than the Bigsby. https://store.duesenberg.de/en/hardware/tremolos/34/duesenberg-les-trem-ii the name is Les Trem II, it should be an interesting alternative. Good luck. Andy
  9. The most beautiful issued in the last years.... Andy
  10. There is another material called Rocklite, I think is made in UK. https://www.rocklite.co.uk From the website and taking a look to the pictures and specs it seems more appropiated material than Richlite, I think. It should be a good alternative for not expensive guitars..... Andy
  11. My 2004 DOT reissue, with gold hardware. Beautiful all prupose machine..... BR Andy
  12. I found this interesting video about unpotted PAF pickups: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOhkQK75edc it seems that the original PAF were unpotted...... BR Andy
  13. Thanks Rabs, should be permitted the Bolivian for export purposes, but not the Indian rosewood probably. Andy
  14. what is the wood they use for the fingerboard for export? Somebody knows about? thanks Andy
  15. Love new strategy, love models and line in general, the custom special double cut is a beautiful baby!!!! BR Andy
  16. My choices: 1-Deep Purple: Made in Japan 2-Woodstock Festival Album 3-AC/DC: Live at River Plate Stadium, Buenos Aires 2009 4-ELP: Pictures at an exhibition 5-Santana and Buddy Miles Album Bonus track: 6-Pink Floyd: Pulse BR Andy
  17. Beautiful, all the 3x5 guitars are beautiful, but the color is in addition very nice. Enjoy it. BR Andy
  18. My one, very similar to yours: BR Andy
  19. I always feel in my LP or in another guitars with such configuration, more volume at the neck pickup than at the bridge one for clean tones, I solved it with my bridge pickup volume i.e.: in 8 and the neck in 5 or 6, while with an overdrive pedal connected both sounds are even or close to, this is another way to solve. Sometimes it is a matter of where you put your hand to strung the guitar, if you strung closer to the bridge the sound is more "tight" let´s say, while playing over the neck pickup even only with the bridge one connected, gives you a more open sound. It is something that you need to experiment. BR Andy
  20. Beautiful guitar!!!, just an advice, please keep in mind that always you have to tell your girlfriend that she is more beautiful than the guitar, LOL!! BR Andy
  21. In addition to my Gibsons, I have a Cort Source BV, it is an Indonesian gear, very similar in shape to the 335 but with Bigsby and P90 type pickups. I changed the wiring because some problems with the old potentiometers, finally the luthier in charge told me, "I love the 335s but doing a maintenance is painful". I consider that access cover behind is a great idea, may Gibson has to promote more the 333 as an option....... BR Andy
  22. I think if the machines are Grover probably you have the chance to see at Grover catalog if they have such plastic replacements. BR Andy
  23. Completely gorgeus, congrats!!!
