This is IT. I've never felt this way before about a guitar. Forget about the relicing, etc. which is impeccable....this guitar FEELS right, and it speaks to me....I can't put it down...nor can I get rid of this lump in my throat....

Very cool-kinda like a correctly aged Sweet Cherry. It would be great if he did a Historic R8 though so you get the long neck tenon and non weight relieved body.

That's how I felt about my S when I got it. Who cares what others think if you love the way it plays sounds.

PM me, rgsss14: price, specs color, relic level, pickups, headstock

Very steep price wise... But I like that he's taking a REAL LP and doing his own relic job. My guess is he's doing the relic work on these himself. These newer fender type relics he's putting out have really fake looking necks. Thought I read somewhere he's got an apprentice or two in there working with him. I take nothing away from Bill he puts out a great playing axe.

So it's an actual Gibson that he relics and sets up? Which model? Looks like he puts in Lollars (and probably other aftermarket pickups). How about the nut and the stock electronics?

So that's "the" guitar I heard about??? Awesome! More pics, more pics!
I'm afraid my picture taking technique is not so good. Let me try to take a pic of the top.... it's actually a lightly figured birds-eye!

But, seriously, this guitar could have Bart Simpson's likeness etched into it.... it really is the neck/setup/pickups/tone/overall mojo that makes it what it is!!!

What's a used classic go for nowadays, $1500?

Not saying the end result isn't worth the dough.

Enjoy your new old guitar.:)

Probably worth it to just send your own LP to him. Id love to see what he can do with a 61 Reissue SG.

You have a legitimate point. But.... with any of the old Gibbys or Strats.... there are some that have it and some that don't. This one does.....just to illustrate....LP#2 is superior, in terms of relicing, top figure....etc..

But again, this one just spoke to me- more than #2 or ANY other guitar that I have ever played. (in the LP realm!)
