Not trying to advertise the site or store but just wow at that guitar.

Compound radius fretboard? Didnt know gibson did that

The only sketchy thing is not knowing whether or not its "chambered"

Pretty cool guitar regardless.

This was also Gibson's first guitar to feature "dynamic sound chambers"

There you go

For $600US less I'd consider a new Classic Custom:



Main difference is the baked maple board, which appears very light in this pic but which have been darker on the newer ones coming out and which I hear also darkens up nicely with a few coats of lemon oil. I'd check it out though, I've never been a big fan of ebony anyway.

I honestly don't like the backside TS it's beautiful, but I wish the red covered the entire guitar, not just the front

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

Meh. If I wanted a flashy LP I'd just get an ESP, who look right when they do it. That Gibson is a total boner kill IMO.

I wouldn't say they suck, they're just too expensive for what you get. You're just buying the name. I bought my Explorer in 2005 and it's fantastic. But now they've doubled in price. Not worth it anymore.

"dynamic sound chambers" - keeping the weight in check and adding a nice resonance to the sound
Its pretty darn chambered alright!

But is it the chambering that they use on all USA models or is a new design of chambers

they've done different "versions" of chambering and weight relief over the years.

i've never been a fan of the elegant. i blame the ec1000.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

What's the big deal with chambering and weight relief?
I see a lot of talk about it, but I don't understand why it's an important feature.

the feature equates to lighter weight guitars.

old growth mahogany was lighter weight. but they stopped getting that stuff in the 60's.

so the wood from the 70s and on wasn't all as light as the old stuff, some was but most wasn't.

so in the early 80s they started creating cavities inside the mahogany by drilling out sections of it. as of 2008 the LP Standard is fully chambered, as opposed to weight relieved which started in 1982.

some les paul purists and enthusiasts went bonkers about it pretty much ever since.
