A dream guitar. Absolutely over the moon.
Great guitar, bought it because of Frank Iero who had same one called Pansy. Lovely ??
Great looking guitar, feels amazing
Good quality guitar for the price. Like the new headstock shape - it was what finally persuaded me to buy one of these. Only small flaw was a pale streak in the ebony fretboard, but otherwise well manufactured.
Great guitar for my budget with great sound and sustain. Can’t afford a genuine Gibson but I doubt many players could tell the difference. Looking forward to my next session.
