Gibson Custom Shop Solid Formed 17" Archtop 2015

2015 Gibson Solid Formed 17" Archtop just in at Guitar Riot!  This is in great shape and plays really well.  Comes with original case and COA/paperwork.
Overall very clean with only a small ding on the headstock, one on the neck and a slight indentation on the side bass bout (see pics).  The pickup has some tarnishing as well.  Please message with any questions.

From Gibson: (Full specs can be found here: http://legacy.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2015/Custom/Solid-Formed-17-Hollowbody-Venetian.aspx)

The debut guitar in Gibson Custom's new Solid Formed™ Archtop Series, the 17" Hollowbody Venetian is born from a marriage of Gibson's 120-year legacy as the inventor of the archtop guitar and its ongoing reputation for innovation. This full-sized archtop is inch for inch the descendant of the legendary Gibson archtops of the 1930s, '40s and '50s, yet it surpasses even that lofty standard by employing a proprietary new Solid Formed™ spruce top and maple back, in which the grain of the wood is redirected into the arched shape, rather than severed as in traditional carving. The result is an elegant hollowbody archtop made from solid tonewoods, yet with a richer and more pronounced tone that lives and breathes like nothing you've ever experienced. Enhanced by a new stronger neck design that uses less wood, and with its resonance unimpeded by a "floating" pickguard-mounted mini-humbucker, it's a bold new leap in archtop evolution.
