Well, today I bought a 2004 Gibson Xplorer pro


Mint, and I literally mean MINT Condition

The guy I bought it from was a collector, so he rarely touched it, let alone play it.

No scratches/dings/dents/weather marks/ruckle rashes anything....only a few smudges.

There was still a red plastic tab under the combination lock showing that hasn't even been touched.

See for yourself!









It even still has the factory strings! I know, I'm definetley changing them within the week

Other than the strings, the action is tid bit too high, but once all that is set up she'll be a nail driver!

And I have named her Brandy for those wondering

All paid for the grand total of an even $800

Very cool. Replace the pickups with some duncans and you'll be rolling.

now take that ugly strap off!



I will when you take your strap on off!

As for the pickups, I dig the 496 and 500. So they're good for now

Congrats, a NGD is always awesome.
#26
I dont know what I'm luckier about.

The fact I found one that low, or the fact it's never been damn played until now!


And I love the HT5.....Thank God someone these boards recomended me one, otherwise I would've wound up with an MG like originally planned


Too bad the Blackstar doesen't have the CRUSHING OVERDRIVE!!!!!
