Meanwhile, I am a self-confessed fan of these John Shanks models. Every one we had so far was a great player with a killer sound. In the meantime, they are almost impossible to get and the prices are constantly rising. The CC#7 is the exact replica of the 60's Les Paul of the legendary music producer John Shanks. With this Gibson CC#7, I'll get right to the sound. Here it shows again clearly why the CC series was so successful. Super differentiated, great tone, really smacks, dynamics of the finest and vibrates already dry super. At the neck pickup nice open, without mud and at the bridge it really rocks off. Because of the great dynamics, you can work super with the sound here. Although it is a 1960 LP, it does not have a slim tapper neck. I'd say it's a straight 59 neck with a good feel in the hand. The aging is top notch. Super authentic and with lots of dings, dongs and play marks. The CC Les Pauls are becoming increasingly rare and have a super value retention. Remarkable is also the extremely grained fingerboard ... absolute eye-catcher! This CC7 is in great condition and the frets are like new. Great Les Paul that is really fun to play.
