2013 Gibson EB 5 in black.

  1. I've been a member for months, but this is my first post.
    Today I pulled the trigger on a 2013 Gibson EB 5, in black.
    As per Gibson, it's not available in black. From my research, 50 5 strings were made in black (a Standard Color on the 4 string), specially for Sweetwater, where I bought mine new.
    Can anyone verify this?
    I'll have it tomorrow.
    Anyone own one of these or play one yet? I couldn't find one local, so I had to order it. I haven't seen nor played one yet.
    Any info anyone can provide would be GREAT! I feel like a little kid. My first new "Player" since I bought my matched pair of Warwick Vettes in 2008.

    Thanks in advance for any info of any type you can provide, particularly on color. :hyper:
