Fantastic guitar by Gibson. I would give it a 4.8 overall ONLY because when I received the guitar the volume and tone knob were switched and I had to pop them off and switch them to the correct pots. Other than that, it plays really well and has zero issues. Adding the middle pickup into normal play helps thicken up the bridge or adds a slightly different tone to the neck pickup. The middle pickup can get in the way if you are not used to it being there but it does not bother me and sounds great. The vintage cherry finish is very nice, beautiful grain shows through the red. I do also appreciate that Gary Clark Jr's name is not all over the guitar like over sig models.
