Thanks everyone, This axe had me thinking all week long. i saw it first on friday the 18th. At the Magate Fl. Sam Ash store. I had the same reaction as all of you. It was on tour in the custom shop trailer . this is a 40ft. trailer and is set up with some show cases(3 or 4) and some guitars hanging on the walls. very,very nice. there are alot of axes that you don't see often and your able to play all of them. 20 or so i'd say. check the Gibson site or if you can find anything there chech Sam Ash's site. from what i understand they go all over the place so it's a matter of being near and noing when. Yesterday i was near by the Sam Ash store and went in to kill some time. The salesman I've been dealing with for about 2 years was there and i asked him , if i wanted to get in touch with the guys on the truck would it be possible? He also had seen the axe so he understood. he went to his manager and came back and told me the guitar was there. my first reaction was he was B.S.ing me, but than the Manager came out and told me he had it in the back. wanting to see it again he brought it out. I played it for awhile , plays as good as it looks. sounds as good also. anyway we had already talked price and we talked some more. the axe was never put out on the floor. he told me he bought it for resale in the store and that he was offering it to "some people". I guess he didn't want everyone who saw it to play it. understandable. Now i'm paying off my wife and being a good husband lol. Worth the price anyday.

Oh yea , there was no pick guard. That's a good thing as the top is to nice to be covered up . I did ask . it would have come off anyway. no holes were drilled. custom shop imho did the right thing with that.
