    Direct link President Obama signed Epi Nuclear Extreme Crackle

    I asked the seller how much he'd want for just the guitar - he said, and I quote, 'the pickguard is attached to the guitar. I can't take it off.'

    I respectfully pointed out that it was only a matter of undoing two screws but he's adamant he won't separate them (despite saying he was unable to take it off).

    Now I know there's not much love here for the Nuclear Extremes... but what a waste of a great looking guitar.

    You are bidding on an extremely rare and beautifully designed President Obama Signed Les Paul Epiphone Electric Guitar

    I must have missed the release of the Epi Senator/President Editions.

    I seem to remember the Nuclear Extreme's being UK-release only, or at least certain editions of them were. Maybe the POS-version was UK release only - which is why you missed it maybe?

    (And when I say POS, I don't refer to the usual description of the Nuclear Extremes finishes!)

    I saw Les Paul @ the Iridium, and got his autograph after the show. The guy in front of me was having Les sign a bunch of pickguards. I never imagined people would do something like that until I saw it for myself. I later saw someone with a bunch of Epi LP 100's on Ebay with Les' autograph on the pickguard for something like $899 each. I'm sure the autographs were real, but Les never saw the whole guitar. Pretty low.

    I say that man was very considerate, saving Les Paul from having to see all those LP-100s. :naughty:
    Now, selling them for $899...that is low. :laugh2:

    Great news. I was zippin' around Ebay, and the Obama LP is still available. Found some other treasures to pick up with it. An Epiphone Les Paul case for only $192, but the shipping is free! Also, a set of Gibson 490/498 humbuckers that the guy wants $35 just for shipping alone! I know there are alot of people with more money than brains, but this stuff is ridiculous.
