Now, finally, you can get it back!

UweC, 22.10.2016
I remember exactly how, in the early 1980s, the heritage and elite of Les Pauls were raging. Since then, Gibson has been growing with growing enthusiasm to meet the demand for guitars that are built and sounded like in the late 1950s. It seems like they've finally arrived after 35 years!
It is like always with Gibson: taken from the beautiful suitcase, the part makes the first impression, after a short time you realize that even the most expensive Gibsons are not perfect. At my it were the following little things: a) The Trussrod was a bit too strongly attracted, the neck 'too straight'. Ok, that was fixed in a few minutes. B) The Saddles of the treble strings sat upside down in the bridge so that the octaves could not be adjusted exactly. Was also repaired quickly - then I could adjust them perfectly. C) Between the potentiometer housings and the ceiling above the electronics compartment, the washers / washers were missing. As a result, the potentiometers, and therefore the potentiometer, were too high above the ceiling. Pure optics or cosmetics - but annoyed me and I corrected this. About half an hour of work with appropriate care.
But then: the part is super in the hand. The neck shape is just right; Enough meat - but not as clumsy as a 58er standard. The hammer is the broken (rolled-in) fingerboard edges. There is nothing to disturb, you are on your neck at home and everything succeeds. The weight, the resonance, the sustain fit everything. The unwaxed Custombuckers are so close to the original PAF as no Gibson pickup ever since. The correct Poti values, in conjunction with `50s Wiring and the Bumblebee capacitors, bring out a lot of sound variations from the circuit. The 'Black Beauty' character is clearly audible: the massive mahogany body is slightly softer, more rounded than the standards or later Customs with the maple ceilings. An inspiring sound that is not too aggressive. In contrast to the VOS and Historics of the last years, the thinner, more authentic nitro lacquering does not adhere to the hand. Conclusion: For a long time I did not want Gibson anymore, but this True Historic has brought me back. Great part!
