NGD: A pleasant surprise

I bought a Gibson Flying V HP 2017 yesterday. Guitar is pleasant surprise itself, but in the guitar case there was another small surprise, which made me smiling. Technician has took a photo of the guitar, when it has been checked and put the photo in the case. I have bought many new guitars, but I never got a photo - not with my Les Paul or Custom Shop ES-355.

Guitar setup was perfect right out of the box. No buzz, action is low, easy to play... neck and body joint is really smooth and the strap button is out of the way. "Undercut" frets are really quality stuff and Dirty Fingers+ pickups has a really aggressive sound. Just what I was looking for.

This is a KEEPER!

Congratulations, Sunshine! Yeah, that is a beauty! I don't know why I've never owned a Flying V, I have always admired them.
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
