Gibson Custom in honor of Chuck Berry introduces the Gibson Custom 1955 350T[www.youtube.com
] When I was in Nashville on 9/4/19 choosing wood for my Gibson Custom Sunburst Les Paul R9 (built to my specs ) I got to see the new Chuck Berry 1955 350 T and it is a really cool guitar . Enjoy !
Oh my God yes, it met all of our expectations. The first prototype has been given to my mother already. The second prototype is the one they are using to make the rest. Incredible Guitar.
People have ragged for years about the quality of the instruments falling off during Henry's tenure as chairman. It was not the fault of the people building the guitars rather the push to build at all costs. Can't put one bit of the blame on the people actually building the guitars.
Thank goodness they are going back to building them with historically accurate EVERYTHING. The process started right after JC and company took over.
For the aged instrument fans, that new Slash EDS 1275 is unbelievable. When we went to the custom shop earlier this year they had roughly 8 of them completed. Amazing how the process is done (which I cannot divulge).
They are making some excellent stuff in Nashville.
Post some photo's of your R9 once it's finished.
