Wow that is bazar, did they call it a color? Where did you get it?
Don, it's just called Iced Tea AFAIK. I've seen other examples in Lemon and Washed Cherry, but no specially named colors. I got it from Mark...
Wow. That is very very nice....

So what makes it a transition top?
I don't believe it's related to the top. The transition name refers to it being a 2013 (serial no.) made with 2014 specs...

I've heard this numerous times however There is not anything on the Gibson site. What evidence do we have?


All along this year the talk has been of hide glue board to neck.
And I think it might be Wildwood(or one or two of the other Gibson dealers) that has that referenced.
Check it out it's there. But yes as you say it's not on the G site as yet.

I don't usually care for iced tea but this guitar is one of the prettiest guitars I have seen and the color is simply beautiful. And I love the streaks, they add character to a guitar.

I think the certificate is a treasure, I bet there are not many of them out there. I think I remember this on Mark's site now that you mention it. That Mark - he just keeps these beauties rolling in one after the other.

Holy hell, this is the best 14 I've seen yet. Puts the other NGD threads on here to shame. Killer!
