I had a few of these in the 1970's when they first came out. They were OK, a bit odd, but OK. I sold them off to finance others, but have been wanting another for the past few years. Searched all over, but the ones that came up for bid or sale looked beat to death. When Gibson decided to reissue this I jumped on it. I did not expect much in the way of quality as I have been sorely disappointed recently with my high end Gibsons and the quality control. Something must have happened at Gibson because this guitar is FLAWLESS! Finish is perfect, frets are perfect, neck and setup are perfect. Like Gibson of old. This is a real working man's guitar with great tone, balance and feel. A marked improvement over the originals and vastly better than some of the more recent Gibsons I purchased costing way more. I make my living playing and I will certainly be using this in concert and at roadhouse gigs. I am very pleased and pleasantly surprised at how well this guitar is constructed. It's a no frills axe with lots of character, and I for one am pleased Gibson decided to reissue this iconic, albeit plain jane guitar. It's a keeper for sure. The main difference between this and the original is better body contouring on this, rosewood fretboard as compared to ebony on the original, and a circuit board in the electronics but it still sounds great, with plenty of tone and sustain. If you are considering it, but not sure, jump on it, its a limited edition and well worth the cost. If you had one read more in the past like I did, you will be surprised at the improvements made on this reissue.
