General Your general opinion of this product. I was a bit disappointed when I received this guitar. I had a 1976 Firebird purchased new in '76. It got run over by my bass player and I wanted to get something to replace it that did not cost thousands of bucks. This is a far cry from that one. The finish is good, I like the satin and the feel of the wood grain under the finish. But regardless of other reviewers, it is top heavy and not balanced well. The pickups are mini humbuckers set into the body with plastic rings. THEY WOBBLE. I mean, they are so loose that they hit the wood when you move around. Totally unacceptable as is. I called Gibson, and they said it must have loosened and wanted me to send it to them. I took the pickups out and looked myself first. There was nothing loose. The screws that hold the pickups in were securely screwed into the metal thing that sets inside the pickup hole. It is a bad design, as there is nothing that can be done to tighten up the pickups. I put a piece of foam in hole to keep from moving.

Your general opinion of this product. As the title suggests, this is a GREAT Guitar being sold as a good guitar. It is far better than it's price suggests.

Your general opinion of this product. I did a big review on my blog tan pants dot net. The big thing I DON'T like is there is no case available from this. There should be a Gibson one out as an accessory. I'm not sure if it will fit in the regular FB case but even that is hard to find.
