    NGD: 2018 Vintage Cherry Brazilian VOS

    Just arrived this morning.
    Great looking board. Very dark tight grained Brazilian.

    Weighs 8lbs 2oz

    The neck feels great. Smaller than the regular 59's .869 1st and .980 at 12th
    I usually like a fatter 58 neck but this is very comfortable.

    The board looks great. Any info on the frets? Are these the new smaller 58 model frets?

    The frets feel like the regular R9 frets. The smaller frets are installed on the R8's.

    Thanks! I thought it could be M2M with smaller frets. They just look so tiny and narrow in the picture.

    Thanks, it is a great sounding LP.
    I noticed this one doesn't have the tinted binding or yellowed Gibson logo which the True Historic's had or the 2017 Brazilians. I'm sure it depended on the dealers preference.
    It's more off white into cream colored. The inlays are whiter on this one as well. The contrast with the darker fretboard really make them stand out.
    I guess I will have to age this the old fashion way. Play the hell out of it.
