Original Collection Gold Top

Recommended Posts

Nice Gold Top.  Maybe it's the lighting but the finish looks a little more sparkly than most.   How does she play?

thanks...really appreciate you checking it out!  The pic does show more sparkle to the top, to my eye i don't see it as much.  Plays really well, i'm 'assuming' all these guitars have been set up with PLEK machine.

I believe all Gibson's have been PLEK'd since at least 2016

 

Appreciate the info...it does make a huge difference.

Nice guitar, but any Gibson is a nice guitar in my opinion.  I only own one Original Collection Gibson, not even a week old, and I can't put it down.1386429551_LESJR.jpg.eb257eddfbc6180b4a59a1f2be04eba6.jpg

Congrats on adding such a beautiful guitar to your family - so classic and I’m sure it sounds fantastic!

I’m sure I’m not the only one to have experienced what I’m about to describe, right @maplebaby?

I’ve been practicing for a few hours and decide to call it a night. I put the guitar down and can’t help but admire the guitar. If the guitar is relatively new I might even take another picture for my records. Maybe the new picture will capture better how awesome the guitar looks in person. Then I look a the picture, then again at the guitar, but I can’t help but pick it up again a have another half hour, or maybe even a couple more hours of practice. Then some days it might get too late to have amps cooking that late at night. Attenuator to the rescue or maybe continue playing unplugged. Sometimes  when I least expect it’s 1 or 2 in the mornin and I have to wake up early the next day to go to work. Once I made the mistake to go until 5am.  That day I was reminded of the valuable lesson I can’t be doing that anymore at my age.

When it gets late or anytime I want silent practice I use these and a set of headphones.  Yeah, I know the purists will freak out, and you wouldn't take it to your next gig but, for what it is, it's pretty awesome.

Well, playing is what its for and its obviously inspiring you to do just that. Maybe just indulge it more at weekends? 🎸 🙂
