Absolute congrats. You might just have to self-quarantine. . . you know, just to be safe. You'd be in good company.

I have a really nice clean Epiphone EJ-200 I bought used back in 2018.

My new Gibson cost a little over 30 times more.

Are they similar?

Not even close - this is a whole new class.

Congratulations!

It has made it here after all that wait. Looking good!

How was the drive and the shop in Nowra?

Hi BK - left home 6.45am got back 5.15pm. Roadworks and a (red)  P-plater on it's roof  outside Bega slowed us up a bit. Small shop, one at a time. Did a superb set up which is much appreciated.

I've left my Huss & Dalton on consignment with them - beautiful guitar but neck width a fraction too wide for me - the Gibson is perfect.

Question for Gibson aficionados - on my Gibson Certificate of Authenticity the guitar is called a '1957 SJ-200' but on the label inside the guitar it is called '1957 J-200' ... they drop the 'S'?

Usually called SJ-200, but J-200 will work in pinch, too!

Beautiful guitar !!!

Nothing short of gorgeous - even non-payers would dig to have one of these in the house.  Like looking at a beautiful woman. You keep sinking deeper. .

Yeah, she's a real stunner ...we do require a sound sample or we'll just pretend youre making it up.

Id hate to know how much  SJ-200 TV would cost back in Australia, but it would be a nose bleed no doubt.

Woohoo, congratulations and you rule! Great patience bonus points, too. Nice looking guitar, for sure. I hope to try one of those baked-top Maples out some day.  I love the baked top on my RW edition.

Enjoy it!

I think your pre-war version is the best looking guitar in the whole new Historic series and this '57 in Vintage Sunburst is 2nd.

First thing that hit me was the depth of the sound, amazing ... but still beautifully balanced.

Thank you for all the kind comments - I'm coming to grips with it and it just sounds better each time I play it - yes, the 'Honeymoon' period is just beginning!

Here I am.
