A wall of Gibsons
There's Libby lined up with my other Gibsons.
waiting for her to warm up a bit before I tune her up and have a bit of plinkyplonky time. She's really nice though, a '98 model so nicely aged. Only 1 minor crack on her, but she has been looked after very well.
She does need a clean though...she smells a bit, think her last owner must have been a smoker.
Impressive performance by DHL giving next day delivery and regular notifications. I really though it would be Friday or Monday before she got here.
Edit..ok warmed up...tuned up, plugged in.
'kin 'ell.....what a belter....fantastic just fantastic, feels amazing, sounds amazing, looks...incredible....WHY did I not buy one of these babies before...just spent nearly 2 hours noodling around, doing mega barre chords and stretches and all worked perfect, no hand strain, no hard to reach frets, nothing, perfect position, pefect weight, perfect neck, perfect sound..I am genuinely smitten.
Just need to do something about that smell of smoke..
Libby, time for a wash.....c'mere you!
