New Gibson Day

Just picked this up as a project last week, some of you may know i'm not a fan of current Gibson's and I like to live a little on the wild side, I know Elcid had one of these of some sort.


Make: Gibson
Model: V-90 Double
Wood: Mahogany/Maple neck
Scale: 25 1/2 inch
Frets: 24 med. jumbo
Fretboard: Ebony
Markers: Split MOP (Hendrix style)
Pickups: Hum/Single
Trem: Gibson branded made in Germany Shaller
Tuners: Grover

Also has a Steinberger leg rest, a tummy cut, and MOP gibson inlay on headstock... pretty different and cool IMO.
Neck is pretty thin and spacing is wider but comfortable as an old shoe.

That actually looks like a nice V, and there aren't many of those about IMO

Not too many of these, though coincidentally I was sifting through the classifieds on HC and came across guy thinking about getting rid of his. I pm'd him and we had both stripped ours on the same exact day.

Re: New Gibson Day

I did have one of those, mine was a black V-90, it didnt have the neck pickup. KILLER V, probably the best they ever made, great neck, great inlays. The guy I sold mine to made it a V-90/V-Custom hybrid, mine was pretty beat. Did you get the leg rest with it? I didnt see it on in the pic


here's the before


I wish I saved the after

Leg rest is to the right of my hand in the pic with my face. The leg rest is actually pretty handy.

I had been looking for a stoptail model on and off in the past but this one popped up and it was love at first sight. The inlays are rather classy.

Re: New Gibson Day

Umm anybody know what other guitars Gibson has ever made that featured a 25.5" scale? I know of the Blueshawk & Nighthawk... any others?

I just picked up a 24 fret SG... but it's 24.75"
