It plays great !!
It has a fat neck on it, bound fingerboard and plays really smooth.

Thanks guys !!!
I've been playing it and I'm totally in love with this guitar.
It's excellent for Slide in standard tuning. A very Bluesy sounding guitar.

That is one helluva Christmas present. A Custom Shop VOS? DAMN.

You are a lucky man Grady.

I'm still enjoying the Xbox 360 the Mrs. bought me. In fact, all I did was play Xbox Live and guitar all break. It was awesome.

Can anyone tell me why these VOS Gibson guitars come without the plastic thing on the selector switch? I've noticed that none of them seem to have the plastic tip.

Thanks Nick !!!

Hey Lefty, they leave the switch tip in the case with the rest of the case candy to keep people from stealing them off of the guitars. It's not just a regular switch tip, it's an "aged" switch tip that looks like it's 50 years old.
