    Trip to Gibson Custom Shop! 🔥

    Hey all, just wanted to write quickly about my latest trip to Gibson Custom Shop. First off, damn it was hot in Nashville! Like almost 100 with what felt like 100% humidity! Nonetheless, I was able to hand pick over 100 tops for our CME LP's and choose finishes! I found some VERY CHOICE woods! I feel like the luckiest guy on earth that I get to do what I do! I love and adore these guitars , and being a part of building them, is a dream come true, truly! As always, any questions about Gibson Custom Shop, anyone wanting to build, or curiosity about my current inventory, MESSAGE ME! Don't be shy......the forum has been great to our shop and I like to extend that appreciation to the members! Davida@chicagomusicexchange.com

    Looks like a good time thanks for taking your time to post !!!
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    He thinks the mirror is a photo of a clown ?

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    Wraptail, P-90's and solid colors. That's all I'm gonna say

    (I'm sure you'll get some awesome flametop bursts though!)
    This is a song from the new album, it's a deep meaningful song this one... No, it's not whiskey in the fucking jar... Philip Lynott

    Do you have a list of what these 100 are going to be or do we have to wait until they hit the website?

    We need a CME Les Paul registry just to track these. I haven’t put mine down all week since it got here last week.
