    Gibson Custom Shop Bella Voce Les Paul 5A Quilt Top Electric Guitar Honey Burst #BV III 5/6

    Not even sure if this is the correct forum for it, seems a bit fancy for the regular Les Paul forum.

    Anyone know anything about this guitar? Judging by the serial it’s a number 5 of only 6.

    I saw it on the Music Zoo website. Hope it’s ok to post the link, I’m not trying to sell for them but wanted people to see it. Hell, it’s only $21,249.00

    I hope this is like a fashion show where only parts of this make it to production and on different items.

    That's quite vulgar if you ask me, but I do totally respect people liking this kind of baroque art. Just not for me.

    It's art, man.

    If Liberace were still alive, he'd probably buy it.

    These exercises in "Ultimate Inlays" and "Ultimate Engraving" remind me a lot of engraved special edition Browning shotguns.

    Totally for collectors and wealthy enthusiasts. The people that own these usually hunt or play but they also have disposable income and these pieces are cased for show.

    I don't have a problem with people doing what they want with their disposable income. It's not my cuppa' either but I can totally dig how much time and effort went into these. :bowdown
