I have seen Gibsons on ebay selling for $600,000 but these guitars are not for us... the majority... the people of this forum. These guitars go to rockstars, collectors etc who all have one common thing: millions of money. Watch this LP:
The color is blue dye, same color like the 1st LP it was posted. Anybody who's thinking to make a custom order, should pay attention to the color if it's not solid because every piece of wood is different. I have to say the people responsible for the finishes at W are great. The only time I ordered an unpainted body, I sent pics with the custom color I wanted (washed black) and they matched the pics.
The prices on the higher end LP bodies in the showcase have more to do with the extreme high grade of the Quilt Maple laminate and the 1-Piece Mahogany back than the "DL" factor. A DL is actually more labor intensive to create than a single laminate body but the market price for Quilt Maple out-paced the extra labor costs it takes to create a DL.mscmkr said:Gregg do you have any idea whether this pricing is going to be standard for DLs?
