Not a gibson - not even close.. I fell out of love with this mid 80's Profile, but- it faired better than the keyboard it hit. After a few years I couldnt stand to look at it - yet I couldn't stand to throw it out so I decided to rebuild it.

It maybe hard to tell - but its a very light green - lighter than mint. I had a friend match it to a 'mistake' colour I liked.

Now- its solid and actually plays. The buzzin' - minimized... And Its mushroom motif is only missing Lenny Kravitz in some flamboyant attire.

"Profile" guitars were available in many countries - ( not the US) And were basically 'catalogue' specials.

If anyone has info about Profile guitars - feel free to comment. This is the only "gibson" style I have seen

    It looks wonderful - great job! Just talking about Lenny Kravitz the other day and how he always looks so rock-star handsome - why not? Are you playing yours?
