How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Nice setup from the Gibson Custom Shop. Neck feels like '60s slim taper with good setup.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Little weak compared to those maximum output pickups from Gibson. Warm and mellow.

No stain or defect out of the box. Nicely done with finish.

Perfect setup out of the box.
