Let's just start with a bit of catch-up from the old thread so that this one is complete from the beginning:

There are two common descriptions: "like mahogany but a bit brighter and airier" and "very much like the real old real mahogany that Gibson used in the '50s, but a lighter colour". Both seem to be pretty much true.

Yes indeed, but it might not see daylight for a while. I have a couple of strat and tele bodies to experiment with. There's one badass explorer underway and plans to start one of everything from the Gibson camp.
