    Billy Gibbons Pearly Gates VOS

    Has anyone played the VOS version of the Pearly Gates? If so, what were your thoughts on feel, looks and sound?

    5997Joe -

    You may have already done this - but I would do a search on the LP Forum. I bet there is a lot of info that has been posted. Again you probably have done this too - but maybe Youtube.

    I know the general consensus was they were a very good run and as far as reissues go have done a pretty good job of holding some value.

    Hope you get the info you are looking for
    Some people call me old fashion - but fire scares me

    With the exception of over-gunking the VOS treatment on the pickup covers mine is one of my all time favorite playahs... absolutely perfect in every way. Was there something specific you wanted to know?

    I had one. The frets were shorter/narrower than typical historic frets, that's the only thing I wasn't too fond of, otherwise great guitar. The neck felt slightly more C shaped than other R9s I've played from that era.

    He's asking about the VOS, not signed model.
