Basically, I just bought one of those Peter Green/Gary Moore Custom Shop Gibsons. It's sharp. I think it's worth more than my entire Electra collection... now, anyway :)

Very Nice Indeed. I guess I will have to break down and get at least one Gibson some day. 8) My son likes my Electras to much to worry about a Gibson for now. He prefers a Dragon PRS instead for his fantasy Axe.

Almost makes me wish I had a face book account....I guess I can look that up. I really don't like the tuners they use on the newer Gibsons - plastic tuning keys? And exposed pickups wrapped with black electric tape? I like my Gibsons, but some of the new ones I've seen are not very impressive. I was at Guitar Center yesterday and left just shaking my head. Of course you get up into the higher end Gibby's and the quality is still there. IMO.

In theory the FB pictures are world-viewable but that changes from time to time. Here's a link:

I have the VOS one, not the "Aged" one, I'm not *that* stupid!

Thanks - that's a real beauty. The high end and custom shop Gibsons are very nice...ya gotta pay though....I think I'd take your whole Electra collection instead of that 'one', but it's nice to have both/all!
