    Gibson L5 Premier-20180916_1025301-jpg
    This is a really special guitar, a 2014 L5 Premier. I flew down to Vinny's and picked it up yesterday. I've lusted after one of these and finally pulled the trigger. Being mainly an acoustic player, it knocks the ball out of the park. And it is in perfect condition. I can't say enough good things about Vinny either. The interaction was a pleasure, and I got to play his new Campellone too! Pretty darn special. QAman sold one of these a couple of years ago, and I didn't move fast enough and wasn't about to let this one get away. It's pure bliss, as perfect as a guitar can be, IMHO! Thank you Vinny! You are awesome!

    Enjoy the visual, aural, and physical pleasure of playing that baby. Such a joy to hear of your pleasure at both getting this and visiting with Vinny!

    That is a beauty and if I was going to play an L5 that would probably be the one! Play us tune on it.

    Skykomishone,
    Gorgeous guitar and a wise choice. The Gibson Crimson L5's are fantastic guitars , and buying from Vinny insured you the guitar was already critiqued for perfection.

    Do enjoy. By the way, did you take the guitar back on the plane ?

    Sky,
    Vinny was fond of that guitar and sad to see it go.
    I am glad it found a good home and it will get all the hydration it needs to stay perfect for the rest of its life with you.
    It’s great to see a terrific guitar go to a great home.
    Congratulations.

    Steve,

    The pleasure was all mine and a joy to meet you. I really appreciate that you flew down to get it with my shipping fears.
    My wife already stoled the money and hired a landscaper to redo our drought dead front yard. Happy wife/happy life.

    May that L5P bring you years of joy. It is a special one for sure. Even has the evo gold frets. The fact that it is A braced makes it special too. Gibson will never make these again.

    Hope to hook up with you next summer and play some of your sweet axes. I love happy endings.

    As Ralph Cramden used to say, "hamana hamana hamana." That's one sweet L5P. Beautiful finish, and--of course--Vinny kept it in perfect (i.e., mint) condition.

    You will enjoy this guitar. It will become your No. 1, I predict.

    I don’t know maybe his no.2......his no.1 is pretty special.

    Jimmy D would like him. He took off my girlie TI 12’s and put on manly 13-56 rounds.

    An L-5P should sing with 13-56 rounds.

    Congratulations Steve! That's one beautiful guitar. Okay, I'll have to come over and play that one, and the Campy, and the Anderson, and the vintage '175, and the piano...I might need the spare room!
