Lovely guitar.

It's funny, I've been reading your handle as Fred Okra for years....and now it makes sense. Fried is much better.

Love all the candy....and the humbucker tag too. Hope you love it.

Congratulations.

Just so you know, fried okra is some good stuff!

Very nice. Congrats. Looks just like mine.

Could be the photo, but looks like your ABR is sagging a bit.

My 57' had a sagging ABR. My repair guy has a jig made up and tweaked it back to stock in about 5 mins. Plays like butta now even with the small frets.

Beautiful gutar! Gold tops are the best guitar ever made!
...but I'm a little biased.... :teeth

Congrats on your stunning '57 GT! Black plastic, pre-stickered PAFs, etc.... to my ears, they're
among Gibson's finest PAF guitars ever made. Enjoy it, play all night!
