    The one guitar you probably can't make yourself... right?

    Nice! I've been waiting for the right one of those for a while. Really liked this floyd one Hydra was selling a couple years ago but I had just committed to some custom builds :-/

    I thought I had settled on one but it turned out to be a pretty sour experience with one of the larger musical instrument stores in Japan. This one popped up locally so I had to jump on it. Living up to expectations so far, I must say!

    I think this one belongs here as well... Burnt, like the surface of the Sun.

    Here's a couple of project guitars that I've painted myself. I'm still working on putting the electronics back together and they should be killer guitars to play once completed.

    Can't find a lot of info on this guitar, but it was apparently made by Mayones (it's called the Flame), and is a baritone...I dig it!

    Volutes and heel carves on a Gibson? And it's an actually super rad finish that isn't just a take on a vintage burst or black or white... What reality am I in? You know what, I don't care. I like it.

    They've offered both volutes and carved heels for years. Same with finishes, they'll do pretty much anything.

    Folks forget that Gibson does a bunch of spot and store runs with features like this, not to mention they'll build you whatever you want through the Custom Shop.

    Pricing wise, you'd be surprised how "cheap" it is relative to what the "production" Gibson Custom Shop stuff comes in at. If you're already considering dropping LPC money, might as well spend a bit more and get exactly what you want.

    To be fair, I've not had Gibson LPC money in a long time, this is the first I've seen of volutes on gibsons, specifically this type of volute. And I stopped paying attention to Gibson for the past 10 years because prices kept rising and my income simply hasn't.

    I had an ‘83 Norlin era Les Paul with a volute...
