NgibsonD for the bolt on master race. \m/

not my first gibson, but i have to say the qc has really gone down hill. probably stick to the mij stuff after this.












i've seen better finishes
























extra springs for the sustain. notice the small block so there's less mass to mess up things.










review - it weighs 7.28 lbs or about 3.2 kilos. it's got a lot of scratches and nothing works.

acoustically it's really thin sounding. not too bad in the shower with the door closed though.

action is kinda low but i can get used to it.

i expected a lot more from gibson.

i should have gotten a funder.

Hehe great review, Happy NGibsonD!!! That thing must be rare and worth shit tons of money. If I had a Ferrino ( http://greatestvehicles.blogspot.co...974-toyota.html) I would defs be considering a swapsy.

oh my god....what kind of 90's grunge fagg0t did that to that poor instrument to make it look more edgy? Some people really do deserve the death penalty. OP...This better be a project guitar.

That Epiphone looks so punk.

Put some dimarzio super distortions in it and cover them with the very same silver paint to make it look untampered with. It would be a brutal guitar to smash in a jazz club.
