    They are $1539 with no tax and free shipping at sweetwater when they have them . I've heard $1199 at another dealer. I imagine other places will gouge the price if they can get away with it.

    I really like this guitar. But I’m not a fan of the pickups. At its street price I wouldn’t buy one to modify (new pickups).

    I have one preordered from sweetwater and they said they wouldn't be in until after the new year.

    Yea hope they show sooner than that. 2 of the other big online places said Dec 3 rd. But we know that doesnt mean anything.

    How’s she sound? Hopefully they gave you left handed pots.

    Nice. I've never had the chance to play a Gibson other than an LP in person.

    I gave up on left handed pots once I got my LP. I got used to right handed pots and there are so many more options out there so I starting wiring all my guitars right handed.

    It sounds and plays really good actually. Been playing it a lot lately. Didn't know how I'd like the body shape, but it's really comfortable to play. A very balanced body and a very playable slim neck. The Burstbucker 2 & 3's have a nice and punchy sound that is pretty smooth to my ears. And the knobs are righty's. I have a 2016 True Historic '59 LP Reissue and a 2009 '58 LP Reissue that are both wired righty...so I'm kinda used to it. Up is down, down is up. If 6 were 9....I don't mind.
