Gorgeous but I gotta ask, how do you 'de-VOS' a guitar? I thought Gibson did all that stuff like, right in the finish. I can't imagine it is an easy task to get it looking all sparkly new.

very nice
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Elbow grease mostly and the right polishes.

haha sorry, it's just that they seem to be of 2 shades on the pic :P


No problem, I think if you look closely it's the reflection of the side of the case!

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

"Vintage original spec" though when people say de-VOS it, they mean to polish it up. Gibson skips the polish to give it a slightly worn-in look, but the problem is that it makes the finish feel weird and gunky.

Nice guitar though, I want an R7 badly, but necks are enormous and I'm not quite sure if I can deal with them.

wow, very nice i wish i could afford a VOS les paul, they are amazing guitars. i remember the first time i picked one up, it was a R8, i turned into nigel tufnel for the next few minutes while that guitar sustained an open a chord.

then i played another one which had an amazingly distinctive reedy quality to the tone, it was unusual and "wrong" but it was an utterly amazing sound. i know i'll never find another one that sounds like that

I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
