    My recent HM RDS passed muster with two owners of multiple real bursts with no financial interest in the matter. Not cheap, but no regrets...

    Yeah, maybe even as high as a third of what he's spent!

    The guitar industry thrives on suckers, and historic makeovers are just one more example of that.

    Welcome!

    Fact is you don't have to understand why. Why buy a Rolex? A Ferrari? A Yacht? Lear Jet? Because you can!

    These folks buy these items because they can. It doesn't affect their bottom line financially as it may some others. Get over it!

    I don't get it either but I'm not willing to spend that kind of cash to find out if it's worth it. There is a lot of $$$$ spent getting that last 5-10% closer to vintage spec out of these guitars. To some, where money is no object, it's an easy decision.

    Some may see it as extravagant or foolish. That's OK. But it's also OK to respect those who have the cash to spend, to spend it wherever they see fit.

    You really don't have to get it. But you should be tolerant of those with different opinions.

    Just saying...

    Re: The latest Historic Makeover...

    Historic Makeovers is arguably the best thing to happen to Gibson Les Pauls since perhaps since the introduction of the "Gibson Historic/Custom Shop" division.

    I'm certainly not one to buy into fads (maybe pickups) but I love them. Expensive as fuck but if you have the cash then I'm all for it. I'm saving my 3K+ to get both my historics done...

    Now the flip side of the coin... if you have more than one Les Paul and you only have one done by HM. You will never want to touch another regular production Les Paul. It's the equivalent of playing the Historic Line and then looking at a USA model. Night and day. Thats why I'm saving to do both at the same time.

    Also, Kim is fuckin awesome! This dude has some weird agenda or is some emo kid spewing hate from his room. lol

    This isn't about traffic! C'mon now- this guy joined the forum to stir up strife. They call that an internet "troll". I don't think it would take long to read all three of his posts to figure that out.

    Would go through the same process... but be a gold top instead of a burst. the wrap tail doesn't change that.

    ...He can also lower the Gibson logo on request...

    Orvillians are not better quality at all. The peeps feel the need for a make over and get it for their own reasons. Orvillians certainly are not Gibsons, in quality or tone. Open your eyes, ears and mind.
