I have never found a need for one. The Ibanez does the job for me.

Now if we were taking about a 335....I've wanted one for a while now. Just can't justify the purchase as I don't play the ones I have enough.

I don't and won't. They sound fine but the weight balance and body shape just don't suit me.

I went to a store a couple of weeks ago fully intent on buying a 50's or 60's Standard. I was impressed with the new Gibsons but walked out with an Eastman SB 59/v.
It reminded me of a real 50's goldtop that I was fortunate enough to play in London on tour in 2007. That guitar left a big impression on me. 8 ish pounds, resonant, alive.
It felt worn in like a comfy old pair of shoes. So does the Eastman. The low output lollar imperials are beautifully musical, seemingly both thick and clear. It really speaks to me.
Hopefully it's enough to scratch my Les Paul itch for a while.

Steve

A little progress on the Giffin T Deluxe. I went with a flat top vs. carved to save $ and weight. He was able to file the saddles to allow for a 17" radius. Still working on how to get all the wiring options I want.

Don't have any desire for one, and I generally think Gibson is very very very proud of themselves and their guitars are overpriced compared to Fenders. If I ever get a Gibson, it would be a 335. But most likely would just get the Epiphone inspired by Gibson.
