    I did the trade! This is a Gibson Midtown Kalamazoo. Supposedly one of 600 made. All original with splittable humbuckers and locking tuners. I had $1180, or $1280 (can't remember) in the guitar I traded, so financially I don't think I did too bad.

    This is somewhat odd, like an ES 135 with shorter scale length.

    Duuuuuuuuude I'll trade you some delicious bacon for that thang!! How about it?

    Just imagine how cool that headstock will look when it's aged and yellowed like an old Byrdland. Gorgeous, congrats!

    It's not neck heavy...

    Got bacon :) Yeah, it should look pretty cool but I'm not sure how it will age. They claim it's nitro but... there's nitro and then there's nitro,

    Sorry :oops: and thanks :)

    I traded this:
