I ordered one last year – l liked it so much, I ordered another one just like it.
This guitar has a nice weight at well under 9 lbs: 8.65 lbs (8lbs, 10.4oz to be exact) as measured on a Mettler commercial scale.
The letters are in a style that is typically seen on custom color finishes done by the Fender factory.
This is a brand new Left Handed 2017 Gibson ES-355, Sunburst finish, Bigsby Vibrato, and verified EBONY fingerboard – rare upgrade! This comes from the Gibson Custom Division in Nashville.
This is from the new limited run of Brazilian R9s from Gibson. The tone is really superb, with a bridge PUP that’s not the typically shrill/bright tone found on previous R9s.
The Brazilian Rosewood is DARK with a nice consistency throughout.
