Default Pics of my new Gibson Hummingbird pro..Finally!

A couple of weeks ago I got a really nice new guitar as a gift. I set it up for me and it plays just great. Looks nice too. Check it out...and a few of his siblings.

I do like sunbursts! Would you believe me if I told you 2 weeks ago the only sunburst I had was the Epi. I have been busy over the last couple of weeks! Thanks for looking.

Thanks! I did that Dot cheap. I bough it new and then bought a RS Guitar works kit for it. My buddy had a $3K Gibson and played mine after it was done. He sold his the next week. Its one of the best kept secrets for a cheap mod on an electric guitar. Jensen caps, vintage braided wire, new knobs, new jack etc. Everything else is stock. They have 20% this week on their kits. Its no joke! And yes, my pickups are stock 57 classics.

Does mine have the ugly pick guard? I kind of like it.

I love your pickgaurd, I dont care for the ones with the weird design on them, the hummingbird that is. I also love the sunburst.
