    I agree, totally gorgeous and I guarantee it plays great too.

    It's making me think I should've bought that used but MINT one just like that for $700 about 2 years ago... (yes, it was a USA)

    Pretty. The toggle looks awfully far behind the bridge. Wonder if that could be an issue.

    That's just... wrong. If I found one for that kind of price.. well, let's just say I'd have it already.

    I am seriously jonesin' for a dual P-90 axe right now. Can't seem to shake it, and it's only getting worse. It took me a while to realize that P-90's and I really get along, and now I'm hooked.

    I understand bro! The store I work at got a whole whack of Gibsons in for our annual Gibson Days, and one of them was a Goldtop '54 RI, CHAMBERED with a 60s neck. Never even knew such a beast existed. Followed me to the gig on Friday night, was played for three sets, and it's not going anywhere! It's slightly less than seven pounds of dual-P90 goodness, and is so acoustically alive I can't wait to get the Tonepros wraptail and locking studs for it. By the way, with the exception of the criminally-poor nut, the build quality on this one is just about perfect. Such a pleasant surprise after an R9 I got two years ago that was full of issues.

    I thought it might be when I got my first Hamer some years ago, but, for me anyway, it took a few minutes to get used to and then it was no issue at all.

    Wow. A 54 RI Goldtop that weighs under 7 lbs??? Unbelievable. I would have snatched it up too. I need to find one of those.
