    FYI, all that Gibbo TRC says to me is KOREAN MADE! goodness usually accompanies.
    Oh yeah, all these real wood guitars will be collectable soon.

    I think he's referring to the alternative materials companies are looking at with all the CITES kerfuffle...

    least I hope he is... :shock:

    Likewise. No need to stir that pot. I'm already ignoring one across sites.

    It should be said, that I've no problem with the phenolic fretboards on axes like the Waters V.

    Yep, someone on here (I think) had a Snow Falcon V, white Phenolic fretboard - looked awesome, and played nicely too according to the owner :thumb:

    Always liked V's - had an el cheapo copy back in the day I seem to remember...

    Like the wine red Gibson 2016 model, but a bit much as an impulse purchase, even used :facepalm:

    Loving the look of the Amos reissue that JB is helping Epi with, but again, betting it's beyond my guitar budget.

    If I'm ever to own a Gibson LP, I'll probably have to sell the lot to afford it... And put some more in the pot <sigh> :frown:

    That Brent Hinds V is right up my alley.

    The Snow Falcon? Yeah, I can see that.

    The Brent Hinds is a Silverburst jobby.

    If; one finds it necessary or desirable to use a cover plate.. I like the classy girl cover!
    I just leave mine off.. I don't share the opinion that EVERYTHING that comes from a manufacturer is good or, in good taste.
