I just got this guitar today and opened it up just a bit ago. My first reaction is WOW! In terms of quality control this one is perfect. Beautiful finish and smells of rich mahogany. The neck is a touch more rounded than my 2019 60’s Standard and I’m all about it. Wanted something a bit bigger in the neck but I’m personally not a fan of the 50’s neck, at least the ones I’ve played. The guitar is soo resonant! That was the big wonder for me and holy cow it has delivered! I can play this guitar unplugged late at night if need be and still get a strong projecting sound to enjoy. I’ll update this at some point in the future but first impression…. It’s gorgeous, resonant and feels fantastic! Gibson got this one spot on.
