Who else has played the new one? Stopped by my local GC today and they handed me their first one to try. I was VERY impressed. I'm very conscious of neck carve and the new asymetrical neck is just fabulous. The setup was perfect and the fret work was just right. I didn't have time to plug it in but the feel in my hand was the best of any LP I've tried in a long time. The finish work was excellent. Good job Gibson.
