I may buy a ML of it IF I can play it first. $50k for a replica? You’re an idiot with money to throw. Why not sell them for $20k and skip the fly over, meet n greet with Kirk and the photo op? That’s where the $30k is. Cause a braz board ML is what? 18-20k MSRP? Not like it’ll sound like Greeny. I’m betting they use Brandonwound PUPs in it. Not just reg custombuckers. For $50k I’d expect old growth mahogany at minimum.I have been told that for 2023 the 59 Greeny is coming and it will be Murphy Lab Aged. I am sure everyone knows this is the guitar owned by Peter Green, Gary Moore, and currently under the guardianship of Kirk Hammett. I am told by reliable sources there will be 2 versions and this will be a limited build allocated to dealers based on sales and territory however Gibson wont disclose how many they will build but will fill all dealer allocation orders available in 2023 only.
Version 1: Aged in the Murphy Lab and allocated to dealers. MSRP $14,999.
Version 2: Gibson Garage version only. Gibson will fly you to Nashville and you will get your guitar at the Gibson Garage with a meet & greet and photo op with Kirk Hammett and rumored that Kirk will sign your guitar. MSRP $49,999.
A dealer friend of mine joked that Garage version will come with a foot massage by Kirk!
