The guitar is amazing, the fretboard and neck feel great, the Thrash Factor screams and will push a tube amp to break up a bit more, almost sounds like a mild fuzz or some extra overdrive if you really dig in. The finish is absolutely breathtaking, not a single issue on the finish, inlays, wiring. It really feels like an American made icon. The only issue is one of the frets is slightly lifted, causing some pretty severe buzz on a very common, major note. zZounds has offered me only $100 back on a broken $3000 guitar, I'm not terribly happy about that, but I am trying to get in touch with Gibson about having it repaired, if they'd ever get back to me.
