The ultimate jazz guitar.
Gregor Glasbruch, 15.01.2014
There is also no criticism about this instrument. Point! If you are looking for a "real" jazz guitar, this is definitely the place to go.

The difference to the L-5 with two pickups is, incidentally, significant. It is probably on the ceiling (bracing), which is nevertheless very different. The response, the frequency picture, everything very balanced - in contrast to the L-5 with two pickups, which I also intensively tested.

This is Gibson's "Guitar Extreme". Everyone who has seen and heard this guitar has so far been flattened. This guitar is so beautiful? Or perfect? Or perfect? - it is and remains difficult to describe. In any case, I am looking forward to taking this guitar in my hand and growing old with it. I can recommend to every guitarist - regardless of whether you have jazz or something at your fingertips - to enjoy the experience and to take the guitar into your hands, to play it over and let it work. There are still the artists who can build a completed guitar, even today. This guitar is proof of this.

However, this does not apply to the case! There are bumps, the attachment of the carrying handle is labarious, and the fitting accuracy of the cover is optimized. Here Gibson should have an eye on it. Also the suitcase of a Les Paul from the Custom Shop, which I acquired in 2013, has similar defects.
