    Gibson Build quality has never been better. Beautiful guitar. The Burst bucker Pickups are the best. However , The Carmelita neck profile on the '59's are quite thin with little shoulder. If I had little girl hands , I would love it, but I don't . I need a little chunk to my neck, so the '58 reissues are more to my liking :)
