Woah!

That's one of the best looking V's I've seen--and this one is stock!

The specs appear to match the good lucks!

Great purchase!

VERY happy Gibson did not over price these. Pretty cool to see them sell and authenticate the ones with confiscated/returned wood. Hold on to it.

Enjoy!

Nice axe.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.
