And now the spec sheet:

BTW, Gibson has now moved all production to china : )

4 pickups, all the same, generic chinese made
6 tone knobs, 6 volume knobs. All are non functional decorations.
4 Pickup selectors, placed in obtrusive positions, also non functional
In stead of the regular bridge there are two wraparounds, only one of which actually touches the strings.
The pickguard, as a special feature only available on the custom shop models has twice the screws, and is made of construction paper.

If you take a look at the neck, you will see plastic inlays in all the frets. A special edition model is planned and will have 1 inch wide neck binding on both sides of the neck. The neck isn't really a neck, but just a fretboard taped to a cardboard tube.

The headstock is a a very special piece of functionality, it has the signature cardboard truss rod cover with "SSGG" written in crayon.

There are two flower pots on the headstock, both hand drawn in whiteout by artists (Sub-minimum wage employees)

As a special bonus, there is a gibson logo ripped from a magazine ad taped on the headstock along with 10 die-cast plastic tuners, 2 of which turn.


The Manufacturers recommended retail price is 15,000$ for the faded version, 50,000$ for the standard one and 1,000,000$ for the custom shop. The added price for the extra thick 1" binding is 2000$. All prices are in British pounds and prices shown are the real price divided by 4.
