Since 2006, I have others and I tried a lot.
I bought this guitar in 1984 that we stole it that I notice a model of 1978, and since I played on other guitars and I finally make up my mind I ordered a to Paris and I waited almost 6 months to get it and I am very disappointed, because the problem of "microphonic" kept me up sound and I ended up going to a luthier and then spend 80 € varnished which is poorly done besides every 3 years must go through the box maker to correct the handle and I wonder if we did not sell me a Chinese version at the importer Gibson Pigalle (I even the certificate that comes with it). this is a guitar that I like and it sounds pretty nice to play whatever the handle a little big for my taste (1950).
Brief view of the problems I will never buy a new guibson if I want vraiement it will be one of 70 see 80.
How would you rate the quality / price? Too bad

With experience, you do again this choice? absolutely not
