I really dig the "Spice" and "Sunshine" finishes.
It reminds me of a '70's Norlin missing the mini blocks. I like that look though and it looks like it could be a nice guitar.
I'm a bit curious about how these Super '74 pickups sound but not $4200 curious though.
I'd think you could get a Norlin for that and have change...
Not as much as you'd think. Norlins are getting stupid expensive lately. Even those uggo '71 Deluxes are out there asking over $2000!
$2000 isn't "change"?
You poor plebeian...
That's an argument against buying anything new from Gibson these days. I recognize how prices are are historically steady against inflation, but in many cases you can buy a used Gibson, even sometimes a "vintage" one, for less money than they're going for brand new.
Not everyone in Florida has 10ft paintings of themselves in their lobbies......or lobbies for that matter.
I don't know that I'd buy a new Gibby. A new Epi (even a signature model) would be more likely.
My, what a pitiful excuse for a life...
I wanted an Ebony SG Custom with Nickel and 2 pickups for as long as I could remember. My dream came true in 2013. How I came to own it is a cool story. I love that guitar so much.
I started gigging again and making a little money, so I splurged for the Sunburst one and custom ordered it from the Gibson Custom Shop in 2015. I really only wanted another of the same thing, but I always loved vintage sunburst, and I'd seen a photo of a real '63 Custom with it and blew my mind. Then I thought about how cool the inlays are on the Super 400, and said what the hell, put those on there!
So here they are! I've only ever seen one other Ebony custom with nickel and two pickups. And I'm pretty sure my Sunburst is one of kind.
Nice guitars dude!
That’s awesome. It makes you wonder why some of these models aren’t available
2009 Angus Young Custom Shop (Limited Run 200)
2007 Classic Custom (Limited Run 400)
2001 61 Re-issue - signed by AC/DC (one of a kind)
Man, you all have some real beauties there!
...and that Custom Angus is to die for!
I haven’t bought a guitar in quite some time. 2009 to be exact; when I picked up the custom shop.
I have some projects in mind and suffer from GAS occasionally, like the rest of us. But realistically I have my dream guitars, so no burning desire to open the pocket the book. Also have a descent acoustic and a Gretsch semi hallow (electromatic) that plays nice and fills a niche.
I see Gretsch is coming out with a standard production Malcolm Young, done proper like the Malcolm Solute Jet. Street price should be around $2400.
It took you 4 years for your second post? At least you made a grand re-entrance...
@pancake81: All that nice wood gives me some nice wood...
Yeah, I was a long time Lurker on the board. Hard to believe I have been hanging around these parts for almost 10 years.
It’s true, I am a sucker for good wood. How can one help but to love it. The warmth, the tone, the beauty. You see a guitar with good lines and beautiful wood grain shining through, and one MUST touch it.
