    It’s a Custom Classic or Classic Custom....not exactly sure.

    What I do know is there was apparently a run of 400 in 2008 for guitar center. They may have done a production run for 2007 as well. But this one dates to 2008 and is #92 out of Nashville, TN

    Nice...looks brand new but I don't remember a silverburst in a USA model other than a Studio for a while now, and that one's definitely not a studio. So makes sense.

    For a ten year old guitar it looks to be in fantastic condition. Here's to a much better 2019 for you plucking on that beautiful Gibson.

    It’s a super bright sounding guitar, almost Slash bright. It has ‘57 Classics in it, which I think are A2 magnets. It’s light, right around 8 lbs. It’s chambered.

    It reminds me more of a Les Paul Standard. There’s no binding on the headstock, but I’ve seen some versions of this guitar which don’t have the Les Paul in cursive on the headstock and have binding. I’m not sure of the difference or significance.

    Here’s another one on Reverb with the headstock binding:

    She’s a looker, for sure.

    Snarly sounding, pretty mean. I dig it.

    Jury is still out if the money is worth it.

    That thing looks like a battle axe. How much does it weigh?
