    Got a Desert Burst LP Traditional. This one is a great guitar. The necks are a tad chunky. Back in 2001, before they started offering 60 and 50s necks the lp necks were one standard size. They were very playable. Since then Necks are too thin or too thick. I'm interested in what Gibson is doing with the 339 on this 60/30 neck. Anyone know. Anyway, got to give major props to Saul at Ccity guitars in San Diago CA for the hook up and great price on a great guitar with a flame top.

    Congratulations man, they sound awesome and play very well.. i love a very chunky neck, so they fit my hands pretty well.

    now you mention it, 339 has one of the sickest necks i've ever tried, amazing feel.

    Harmonics fly off of this guitar. I really like the Traditional. I'd love to have the Goldtop. Classic 57+/57 sound great in a LP.

    The ice tea looks unlike any other model I've ever seen.

    Mine is D-burst. I wish I had a digital camera.
