    Couldn't Gibson afford enough paint to cover up those stripey things on the top? Gibson's QA is really slipping!

    Beautiful guitar!

    Can't quite tell, but it looks like they didn't even bother to paint the back of the thing...

    Hot damn, that burst!

    Anyone notice how a lot of the Traditionals have a burst that goes around the outer edge and isn't the traditional tear drop shape? Typically everything from right between the pickups up past the pickup switch is finished in the darker part of the burst.

    I like'em either way, but I'm just curious why it seems to only be that way on the Traditionals

    I've noticed that too. I'm not sure why they do that. It looks just fine, but different.

    Interesting, How is the Piezo connected? Into the main Jack or a seperate jack? Blender knob? Selector switch?

    Output jack is stereo into a stereo cord, one side is magnetic and I run the piezo side passive into an outboard processor and then into the snake...

    I prefer the "outline" over the teardrop. I've seen quite a few traditionals with really incredible tops (including my desert burst :) )

    IMO the traditionals are fantastic guitars for the money.
