    Bought this magnificent guitar from CD a couple of years ago on the Les Paul Forum and I'm putting it back up for sale - asking $XXXX PayPal'd (standard, non-gift) and shipped, CONUS only. Tough one to put up for sale as it's so unique, but I just don't spend enough time playing guitar anymore. No trades please.

    Summary:
    • Dave Johnson/Charles Daughtry/Mark Bishop project to match the existing coloring of Charles' original vintage Nicky
    • R8 conversion to R9 specs by Dave Johnson
    • jet black Brazilian fretboard
    • restoration, artistic aging and painting + mojo from the master himself
    • Wizz pup's (do not have originals)
    • 1 of only 2 made at the time (note this is not the Gibson Collector's Choice Nicky model)
    • Hang tag from DJ Restorations was created after CD owned it, so it ended up with my name on it
    • original Gibson Custom black case
    • weight is 8.6 lbs.
    • neck measurements 0.89"-0.99" (1st - 12th)

    The only changes I made are to add a MSSC Holy Grail harness (original included with sale), the bridge was replaced at the time of sale with one from Lonnie at Cream Tone (original included with sale), and the knobs were swapped with ones from Cream Tone as well (Knob set for Gibson Vintage and Historic Models - Absolute Vintage Collection - Aged Gold Bonnet Knobs - originals included with sale). Otherwise it's mostly been a case queen sitting on a shelf in my basement - I don't gig or anything unfortunately.

    I can't even speak! My thumbs and fingers seized up so I had to come back to post. That is a magnificent guitar! My retina's are bleeding. I'll never be the same again....

    Sorry, I wasn't finished posting when I blacked out. If this were the 1600's, Dave would be burned at the stake for Witchcraft.
